Miss Stein: Dumb-Ass-Monkey: So, uh, what is that recipe in American?I'm not entirely sure I can find Demerara Sugar, Light brown muscavado sugar, Bramley apples, or a Filo pastry packFilo you can find in the frozen food section (by the frozen pastries). Make sure you get the pastry kind and not the kind used for, say, spanakopita or baklava. There is a difference in texture. Get the Pepperidge Farm brand to be safe.If you can't find Bramley apples, use the tartest you can find.Demerara sugar is also known as turbinado or raw sugar. It's in the baking section.Muscovado sugar is known as molasses (or unrefined brown) sugar. Also in the baking section.Sultanas are Thompson seedless grapes (or close enough).Happy baking!
