Brown Butter Almond Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Zulka is a family owned company that is dedicated to producing more natural sugar through responsible and environmentally friendly cane production. Their products are minimally processed, which helps preserve the flavor and natural properties of the sugar cane (which means it tastes better!)

And Zulka just came out with some new sugars, and I was able to try their Brown Pure Cane Sugar and Powdered Pure Cane Sugar!

For Cinco de Mayo: "Spicy Mexican Chocolate Cookies"

This cookie packs a wallop. It clocks in with three types of chocolate – bittersweet, cocoa powder and chips – and both sweet and hot spices – cayenne, black pepper and cinnamon. There’s Kahlua® in the background, and at its heart, Zulka Morena®, an all natural, unrefined, non-GMO pure cane sugar made in Mexico.

Unlike refined, white sugar which is characterized by tiny, dry, pure white crystals and absence of flavor. Zulka Morena® (morena means “brunette”) brings a particular character to the table with a pale golden color, the subtle flavor of fresh sugar cane, and a very light, earthy fragrance. The crystals are slightly larger, and because it retains a little of its natural cane syrup, is less dry than typical refined sugars.

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, Perfected

 

Often it’s the most classic of recipes that take the longest to develop. Case in point: the chocolate chip cookie cake.

…The secret, I believe, is in the sugar: it’s a homemade brown sugar, made with pure cane sugar and molasses. You’ll be amazed how robustly flavored and melt-in-your-mouth that cookie cake is, just because you sweetened it with something a little out of the ordinary.

April Fool - It Isn't Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

We’re cooking up some food fun for tomorrow, April Fool’s Day. This year, it’s trompe-l’oeil food. We’re adapting the “deceive the eye” reference to “food trompe-l’oeil”—food that looks like one thing but is actually another. Serve this “grilled cheese and tomato soup” dish, which is actually orange pound cake and strawberry soup.

Thanks to Zulka Morena sugar for the recipes and fun idea. If you’ve got a great palate or simply prefer less processed sugar, try it. The top-quality sugar is minimally processed and never refined. You can taste the difference!

Spiced Candied Orange Peel

Homemade candied orange peel is infinitely better than anything you’ll find in a grocery store.  I like making them at home because it is a slow process that doesn’t require much than the occasional stir, and smells amazing. I love the way the peels plump up and preparation to absorb the sweet syrup.

I really like using an unbleached, more natural sugar like Zulka. It also has more flavor than white granulated sugar. The slightly larger grains are also nice for this purpose.

Testimonials

“Their sugar is less refined than normal granulated sugar and has a better, sweeter flavor. It’s rich and tastes more like actual sugar cane. Which I love because it imparts an earthier flavor on the things you cook. Best part is that it’s cup for cup comparable to regular granulated sugar so you don’t have to make any special adjustments with your recipe. Bonus, this product is also non-GMO. Which again, I love.” – Culicurious

“I just recently purchased your sugar when I saw the ‘Non GMO’ label!”

“My family and I will be buying your sugar from now on and I will most certainly spread the word to buy your product!!!” – Tom

“I loved using Zulka because it quickly dissolved and measured cup for cup, just like the refined granulated sugar I’m used to using. It also seemed to add a more complex flavor to my ice cream base, almost a caramel taste. Even tasting the Zulka alone I noticed that it tasted so much different from white sugar, in a very good way. I loved using it in this Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream and I think that it would seamlessly work in any recipe. I fully intend to continue using it in place of white sugar from here on out.”  – Food Babbles

“What counts is the flavor. If you have ever chewed on sugar cane you will know exactly how this tastes. The subtle flavor is similar to caramel or molasses or a cross between the two…here is a new staple sugar in my pantry. I will use Morena for baking when I want the added pure cane sugar flavor. It is what will be in my sugar shaker.” – Magnolia Days

“What is the best sugar you ask?  Well I am sure it differs from person to person, but to me the best sugar is one that is organic, GMO-free, and free from unnecessary processing, especially regarding the use of bone char. That sugar is Zulka Pure Cane Sugar… Zulka’s got me as a customer. I like to purchase from companies whose values align with my own.” – Produce on Parade

“We have started buying your products and are very pleased with it! You are a fine example that a natural non-GMO product doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.” – Stephen

“I absolutely love this sugar and the fact that it’s gmo free!!!” – Brandy

“Absolutely the BEST on the market!!!!! I tell everyone about it…and Non-GMO verified…Your Company ROCKS!” – Marleen

“Oh my gosh, I am in love with Zulka Pure Cane Morena Sugar! It’s completely revolutionary. I’ve been using it in everything, and all has turned out perfect (and tasting even better)!” – The Cooking Actress

“This is now my main sugar in the house. Good bye C&H!” – Paulette

“I just bought your 4 lb. bag of sugar at Wal-Mart the other day, and was shocked that the price was only $.10 more than the name brand sugar. So excited that is was Non-GMO, tastes great, and is affordable.” – Marcia

“Tasting Zulka sugar is seriously like tasting real sugar cane. I know, because in the Dominican Republic, a major producer of sugar cane, I’ve consumed my fair share of it in its natural state. And just as natural is Zulka Morena® Pure Sugar Cane Sugar, non-GMO and with naturally occurring caramel color tones in the granules. Unlike the typical granulated sugar that’s been striped to its’ core and is stark white, Zulka Morena®’s natural color isn’t just nice to look at but imparts great flavor to baked goods, my morning coffee, and savory dishes.” – Cooking with Books

“Zulka Pure Cane Sugar is an all-natural, unrefined, granulated sugar. It is made from freshly- harvested sugar cane that is a better-tasting and less-processed cup-for-cup replacement for refined white sugar. The results are about as close to a pure sugar cane plant that you can get.” – Beyond Frosting

“I sure do love the sugar and I really love the fact that it is a Non-GMO Project Certified Product. Awesome! You have a new fan.” – Brandon

“Zulka is the best thing you’ll hear about all day! Zulka is a Pure Cane Sugar company that is a Non-GMO Project verified “Morena” sugar. (This is a term used to describe granulated sugars that do not undergo conventional refining process.) Which means: its full of flavor and perfect for everyday use. BEST THING YOU’VE HEARD TODAY RIGHT?” – Sugar Loco

“I can honestly tell you it tastes real and so much better than granulated sugar.  This is what sugar is supposed to taste like, I immediately tasted the difference when I snuck my first piece of raw dough (come on I know you eat the dough too before baking)! Zulka is equivalent cup for cup to regular sugar, so no substitutions need to made, all you need to do is buy a bag and get baking!  Oh the best part?  Besides the taste that is – it’s a Non-GMO product, so it’s good for us and the environment.” – Girl in the Little Red Kitchen

“I absolutely love your product. Tastes great, price is comparable to processed sugar and I have the comfort of knowing I am not giving my children GMO’s.” – Karen

“I’ve been using your sugar since my mom introduced me to it over a year ago, and I have yet to find anything comparable or as affordable.” – Gloria
