Corn syrup: bad or just evil?
« on: September 15, 2008, 12:43:00 am »
Anyway, I have a recipe for havregrynskage that calls for 1/4 c corn syrup.  Would molasses be a good alternative?  Also a little more proper, perhaps? 

Then it would be more like granola cakes.  Holy crap I am a genius.   :fap:

Havregrynskage

1 stick (8 tblspoons) butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup corn syrup (OR??)

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in sugar, don't let anything burn okay?  Then dump in the oatmeal, cook until golden brown (5-10 minutes).  Remove from heat, add mystery sticky stuff.  Pack into muffin pans.  Chill.

I've had good results throwing on a little jam or chocolate before they're fully cooled, for extra tasty.  Probably very good with vanilla ice cream.

regular corn syrup is fine. It's high-fructose corn syrup that's abnormally bad for you.

Ohhhhh...yeah. 


Still, in the interest of argument, honey or molasses would still work yes?

I'm thinking with molasses and cinnamon you'll get like a giant oatmeal cookie.  :fap:

I'm hoping that muffin papers will work because I'm tired to washing my tins out.  If not, paper is edible...

I must try this. Especially with the molasses idea.

ZOMG I love molasses.

MUST COOK.

I don't know if I'd use molasses.
It is a completely different thing than white corn syrup.

May turn out too bitter/heavy

There's an entire chapter about aquavit.  Maybe later I'll pull some good quotes.
