    Thanks in advance!

    Sí, en otros países, el azúcar se consigue en diferentes "calibres" dependiendo de lo fino que sea el grano, supongo que el suave, estará muy finamente molido.

    Un saludo

    Acabo de encontrar algo más:

    "Golden granulated and golden caster sugar
    What strikes you about these two is first their free-flowing quality, and secondly their colour, which has all the golden sparkle of champagne. The granulated is for the sugar bowl; use it for tea or for sprinkling over cereals. The caster is suitable for a sugar shaker when you need an extra bit of sweetness on fruit. It’s also an absolute star in meringues, and I now won’t make a sponge cake with anything else."

    Lo he sacado de una página llamada
    Tiene un montón de explicaciones sobre ingredientes de cocina, especial pastelería.

    Buena suerte

    I want to make mince pies for my class at school and I can't seem to find the spanish equivalent to a few things:

    plain flour - would I use harina bizcocho (not de trigo)
    golden caster sugar - I think this is azucar moreno glace ??

    Would that be correct? I'm so confused. In spain you seem to have so many different types of flour!

    Plain flour: All-purpose fluor: Harina de trigo (normal y corriente, ni para pan (bread flour) ni para pasteles (pastry flour)).
    Golden caster sugar: Azúcar de caña sin refinar.

    British English
    "caster/castor" is an original name for the small glass pot with a perforated top for sprinkling pepper, sugar, etc.

    So caster sugars are in powder form. The form I buy is "azúcar blanco".

    "golden caster sugar" has a small percentage added of molasses which gives it the colour, but it is still a `powder.

    "dark brown sugar" has a higher percentage of molasses, and so is darker, soft (blando) and cannot be powder--------granulated.

    That's the situation in my English. There is a lot of variation in these `popular names. In fact, I get confused with the variations in the Spanish translations, so leave this to the natives.

    And "plain flour" is just "harina" (in contrast to "self-raising flour" which is "harina con levadura incorporada).

    'Harina de trigo' should work fine.
