If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?

Also found this, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G......  but a friend's wife who was (likely still is too! Smile )   British told me light treacle = corn syrup.  She kept calling something treacle, and I had to ask her what treacle was and she said, "Oh... um, OH! you Yanks say corn syrup!"

Thank you Ladies,Most grateful.

Dede.very useful site have bookmarked it.Having already made the rolls,I was going to freeze them,until I had solved the problem.But finding that I had "Tate & Lyle"Golden Syrup.I made the glaze and popped half in the oven. The recipe made 18,so Ive frozen half. Within minutes of taking them out of the oven.The doorbell rang,my neighbours ! to wish me a Happy New Year!! ........Wave        'Oh whats that devine aroma" said one.To cut a long story short ,I just managed to get oneCry

Please can you answer my second question?? for which I shall be eternally grateful............Ive learnt that the aroma of cinnamon,obviously carrys far,and drives people to commit indiscretion! I have very snobby neigbours,why now,three days late in wishing me a HNY??

When is a better time to bake? the middle of the night? Or is the answer,as most of you ladies do,live halfway up a mountain/in the boonies/middle of the prairie??????????? I need help here,or I might never get to eat the other half.

One thing to remember though Chris... even light treacle is not likely to taste the same as light corn syrup.

What you call dark treacle is what we call molasses... so even your light treacle is going to have a different flavour than light corn syrup.  I'm not sure how much difference in taste it would make in a final recipe though.

OH... you must have been posting while I was typing my reply.  Sounds like you've already found the solution to your substitution dilemma.  But I can't help you with your other dilemma of keeping your baking from your neighbours... lol.

Your lovely baking aromas will likely wake the neighbors from deep sleep no matter when you do it!  Something I might contemplate doing is fashioning some sort of potpourri with a lot of cinnamon, apples, etc.  When the neighbors come in response to your baking you just haul out the potpourri bowl (which is conveniently located next to the door) and smile as you relate something along the order of, "Oh, you must like my new potpourri.  How lovely!"

Laugh haven't found anything yet that keeps people away when you're baking.  I've just learned to make enough!  But you might try putting that other half in the oven in the middle of the night.....at least so you can enjoy a few!

Be careful Chris. I have been known to walk in my sleep, for things less important than a cinnamon bun. Might want to bake the remainder of those rolls when your neighbor is at work.

You could ask your neighbours if they want to have Dessert Night,say on Fri night once a month. Everyone has to take a turn having it at their house and provide the dessert that month!Yes

I sure wish I lived closer to you!  I would love Dessert Night!  In our remote neighborhood, a neighbor and I (the men bring their appetites!) we pick a country, research the cuisine and pick a menu.  We try to choose dishes that use foods that are new to us and can be found in a grocery in Billings!  It has expanded our palates, but all is enhanced with a glass of wine! Yes

Either way - as desserts only or a full blown meal - count me in!  Could we do something along that order as a virtual experience?  Guess not, what with having nothing to eat as a result!  And we'd miss all the aromas.  Maybe more of a challenge...

OK,which one of us is going to move?LaughI like your idea too. You'll have to let us know what you come up with sometime when it's your turn to cook.

Wherever we move to, Leah, can it be somewhere like maybe along the Equator??  The tropics are looking quite good right now...

no, no, no... you don't want to move here. 

 Its all nice in the winter, but come summer, ....... you will be sorry....Devil with Fire

You can't even take a walk.  It's sooo hot.  It has taken me 40 years to realize why I stay in the house during the summer. 

Chris, close your oven vents.... :)   or move here.  My neighbors are so rude, they don't even visit when I cook really smelly good stuff. Grrr
