    I've posted a picture of golden syrup. For substitutes you can use honey or maple syrup.

    The trick with the grated apple to keep the cake moist works, but not everyone in my family like the apple addition. In stead I use golden syrup in all of my cakes to keep it moist. I don't know how, but the syrup keep the cake moist without tempering with the taste. I usually cut my cake before putting on the icing, so that it can drip in everywhere.
