The Cakeyboi Alphabet - S

We have reached S in the alphabet...

Syrup is a thick sugary liquid in cooking terms. The more common varieties are maple syrup, golden syrup and corn syrup (not good at breakfast time!). But whilst looking syrup up, other thick sweet liquids such as honey, treacle and molasses are also classed as syrups.

Medicated syrups are also common and make some medicines a bit more palatable. Syrup of Figs incidentally is rhyming slang for wig (just in case you were wondering about the 'toon above!).
