    Default Castor Sugar

    The recipe for potato doughnuts recently put on this board called for a cup
    of castor sugar. I don't have castor sugar. Can I use powder sugar or
    regular sugar instead? Is there any adjustment to the recipe needed? Thanks
    in advance.

    Castor sugar is the same as superfine or bartender's sugar. Do you have
    either of those? If not, you can just whir some sugar in your food processor
    for a few pulses and that would be fine. It dissolves more readily than
    regular granulated, but if you want to use regular, you don't need to adjust
    the recipe.

    Regular sugar, not powdered. Powdered sugar has
    added starch. Castor sugar is more similar to
    superfine granulated sugar. If you have a Magic
    Bullet, you could grind regular granulated sugar
    to a finer particle size.

    You don't need to adjust the recipe as long as the amounts are given as
    weights. If they're given as volume (in cups), you do need to adjust to
    make sure you're really getting the same amount. More superfine sugar
    fits in the same space than regular granualted.
