Mind if I ask the brown sugar refer to the baking brown sugar, not the chinese brown sugar? :)

Oooh. Great combination. Dried longan has this intense depth of sweetness that I'm sure is great in a cake. Will try it soon. Thanks for sharing. - shaz

Hi Hanushi,

Any brown sugar will do. You can use light brown sugar or demerara sugar.
