Lars Own Swedish pearl sugar is an imported finishing sugar used to top cinnamon rolls, pastries, cookies, and cakes. These pure white granules of sugar retain their appearance and will not melt under oven temperatures. Perfect for Finnish Pulla or Scandinavian Cinnamon Rolls.
- Pearl sugar is granulated white sugar that is processed into small grains; The grains are then polished to a pearl like finish
- Lars Own pearl sugar is used to make traditional Belgian waffles; When added to the dough the sugar caramelizes and creates pockets of sweetness
- Pearled sugar adds a decorative touch to baked goods especially when food coloring is added
- This distinctive and especially sweet sugar does not melt when baked and retains it’s appearance after baking
Swedish Pearl is not the same as Belgian Pearl
The Sugar was sweet, that can not be denied. As advertised, It didn’t melt when baked either. However, it will not do for your Liege Waffles/Gaufres what the larger pebbles of Belgian pearl will do. These grains are smaller, think pretzel salt, or seed pearls.
That’s exactly what I was looking for to bake some chouquettes (puffs with small sugar pearls on top). Works great, yum!!
