What can I use as a substitute for Demerara sugar, something I can find in the USA?

I want to try and bake a dessert recipe called Sticky Toffee Pudding which is like a cake.

Update:

It's like a cake with a toffee sauce.

    Sugar in the Raw is a possible substitute.

    You could also use 1/4 brown sugar and 3/4 white sugar.

    The Demerara sugar is more crystallized and not as moist but mixing the granulated sugar with a bit of brown should give you the taste and texture.

    Brown sugar. Dark brown if you can find it.

    You can use regular brown sugar, but you might want to pass it through a sieve first-or give it a couple of seconds in the food processor, just to grind it up a bit more.

    try looking for molasses sugar or partially refined sugar. I'm sure you will have an equivalent something like light muscovado sugar
