Light Corn Syrup


The light corn syrup made me dispair! It was essential for the recipes of some snacks I wanted to prepare. I had been looking everywhere…eventually, thanks to my love who found an alternative recipe, I prepared it by myself!


400 g sugar

180 ml of water

a pinch of cream of tartar

a pinch of salt

In a large saucepan put sugar, cream of tartar and salt; mix well and add water. Bring toboil, boil one minute and reduce the heat. Cook it for 5 min more, avoiding it to boil.Turn the heat off, transfer the syrup in a jar, where it will thicken while cooling…and it’s ready!
This syrup is ideal to soften the “structure”, increase the volume, stop the crystallization and enhance the aroma of some cakes!
