Muscovado – the very best sugar in the world?

Muscovado marinade

Use this on meat or vegetables. It gives you a barbecue-style flavour, without having to resort to a horrible squeezy tube! And although it’s called a marinade, you can simply apply it to the meat or vegetables when you need to cook them, rather than having to do so the night before.


75g light muscovado sugar

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp mustard

50ml apple juice


Gently heat all the ingredients, then apply to the meat or vegetables before putting them in the oven/grill/barbecue.


Muscovado cookies

This recipe makes great, squidgy cookies. Use dark muscovado sugar for a darker taste, with a deeper molasses flavour. This recipe is adapted from the BBC Good Food recipe website.


150g salted butter, softened

80g muscovado sugar

80g granulated sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 large egg

225g plain flour

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

¼ tsp salt

200g plain chocolate chip or chunks


Preheat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon. Add the chocolate chips and stir well.

Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre.

Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack.
