GOlden Syrup substitute??

I need to cook a choc cake but dont have any golden syrup... can I use a substitute? ? Would honey work? ?

honey would work, or just leave it out entirely.

Ok. . but wouldnt you need something to substitute the sweetness of GS?

I would use an extra egg. Don't substitute the sweetness. Kiwi cakes have always far too much sugar in them.

it will be sweet enough as lilyfield says, just add another egg. the golden syrup as well as sweetness possibly makes the choc cake gooey, i have made choc buttons and golden syrup together and it makes a sort of paste.

Try jam, any flavor will be good.

golden syrup is used as an egg substitute so I would add aat least 1-2 eggs to mix.
I have 2 choc cake recipes one uses golden syrup and 1 egg the other uses 3 eggs and no golden syrup.

my recipe doesnt have eggs so I will try 2 eggs and see what happens. . or does anyone have a great choc cake recipe? ? ?
