    is it an american recipe?

    goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi…tml
    will deliver
    imo i dont think there is similar as it says it isnt so sweet so i dont think you can use regular syrup..


    oops changed link as was wrong.

    i would be looking at another recipe if i was you-unless you can get profesional help! or maybe try a small cake first? its your wedding after all and i would be afraid to make a mistake

    It's the hairy baker's recipe, and yeah, I have suggested a different recipe but for some reason h2b is insisting on this one even though it's the only one we can't get all the bleeding ingredients for!

    The best one ever was the carrot cake, but it was too nice so we ate it lol.
    We're running out of time to try new recipes, the wedding's in 2 months so the cake needs to be made now or it won't have enough time to mature. I've tried out enough h2bs :w00t: I'll stick with this one :thumbsup:

    Hi hun, I buy it as its good for diabetics. It's cheapest online at ]Simplyfair if you haven't got a health food shop near you. This is a mix of corn and barley malt but does the same job. Also good if you have hyperactive children as its a natural slow release sugar substitute.

    Oh, never thought of trying a health food shop, I wonder if Holland and Barrett would stock it? Thanks

    hi i get my malt syrup from a health shop for making my own malt loaf, they have it all the time

    They may do, I get a lot of gluten free foods and jams from them when in the sale but they don't show on their website.

    Hi
    I Found Barley malt syrup and brown rice syrup in a shop called Ginger & Spice in Corsham Wilts.

    Hope this helps
