  • Sharon S. Hope you don't mind my addressing you as Rob. I'm not familiar with caster sugar. Is that similar to granulated cane sugar or is it in powdered form? I printed your recipe and hope to try it soon. Will I also be able to substitute currants with raisins? Aren't they similar? I'm certainly learning a lot at this website!
