Sub for Molasses in Israel?
I'm trying to share my recipe with a friend in Israel - and got to the molasses and went &*^!@. She doesn't even know what molasses is. What's a substitute for that part of the world? If she were in the UK I might think treacle. What about honey? Am I correct that it's in there as a sweetener for both flavor and a sugar-boost for the yeast as well as to help with the caramelization of the crust?
