The celebration pumpkin pie calls for barley malt syrup. I live in a small town in the Deep South and cannot buy barley malt syrup locally. In my bread recipes I substitute molasses but didn't know if that would be too strong for the pie. Any ideas on acceptable substitutions? Brown rice syrup? Molasses?
Accepted AnswerHi culpritsmom,
I recommend 3 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon dark agave syrup and 2 teaspoons molasses to substitute for the 1/4 cup barley malt in the Celebration Pumpkin Pie recipe. Dark agave syrup should be pretty easy to find in health food stores in the continental US. Let me know if you can't find it. Good luck!
