Sugar Cubes with Raw Sugar + Raw Honey


There's this line in a movie that says something like, "You're as useless at this stuff as I am. You'd be more content with a thermal and a nice milky tea." I'm sure I botched that quote, but you get the idea. That scene always makes me laugh. The movie is I Give It a Year, by the way, and this guy and his ex-girlfriend are shopping for lingerie for his wife. The whole move is awkward and inappropriate, and also hilarious. 

I'd definitely be more comfortable with the tea than the shopping for intimates with my ex. To be fair, I'd take tea over a lot of things in life. 


Suffice to say, I've been drinking my share of it. So I made these little sugar cubes to go with it. I'm really happy with the way they came out after making them with raw sugar. I was worried they would crumble, or be too difficult to break apart, but neither of those things happened. They break right along their perforated lines, and they're super simple to make. 


Here's what you'll need:


  • Pre-heat oven to 250°
  • Mix honey, water, and sugar in a small bowl.
  • Line a standard sized bread tin with parchment paper. Cut off the edges of the paper that hang over, if needed.
  • Put your sugar cube mix into the lined bread tin and pack the sugar down with a spatula.
  • With a sharp knife cut out the squares whatever size you want them. You can probably make cleaner lines than I did. 
  • Bake for 1 hour. 
  • Take them out of the oven and let them cool for about 20 minutes. Remove the whole piece of sugar from the parchment paper and the pieces just snap apart.
