Caster sugar from the Thermomix

October 23, 2009 at 5:22 am 1 comment

The Basics section of the TM recipe book says to process 200g of sugar for 3 seconds on speed 9 to get caster sugar.

Well, you don’t get caster sugar. You get powder. Even processing for just 2 seconds leaves you with a significant quantity of powdered sugar.

And you shouldn’t process raw sugar for caster sugar. The book doesn’t specify, but you should use white sugar if you want white caster sugar (which caster sugar typically is, otherwise, it’s called brown caster sugar). If you make TM caster sugar from raw sugar, you will still taste the rawness in your recipe that calls for caster sugar.
