Have you ever wanted to make something that needed brown sugar but then you realize you don’t have any or don’t have enough? Well, you will never run out of brown sugar with this recipe. Homemade brown sugar is so simple to make and only takes 2 ingredients (that you can always keep in your pantry so you never have to worry about running out again).
This is such a useful recipe and you can make it up in minutes!
Homemade Brown Sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon molasses (2 if you want to make dark brown sugar)
1. Put the white sugar in a bowl and drizzle the molasses over it.
2. Mix together with a fork until the molasses is totally incorporated into the white sugar (sort of like cutting butter into flour). You can also use a mixer but I would still start out with the fork since I’ve found that the sugar has a tendency to “fly” all over the place in a mixer if it hasn’t been mixed a bit with the molasses first. I don’t have a food processor so I don’t know how it would work in that but I imagine it would work well.
3. Mix until fluffy
Store in an air tight container and use as you would store-bought brown sugar!
