Did you know that you can make brown sugar? Never worry about running out again because this method is even easier and quicker than running to the corner store!
We do quite a bit of baking in this house so when I found out that you can make brown sugar, I was pretty excited. I always knew what brown sugar was made out of, but I never considered that it was something that you could make yourself with such a simple process. With this simple recipe, you’ll never have to wait until grocery shopping day to make your favourite cookie recipe! Well, as long as you have the other ingredients needed to make brown sugar in the house. 🙂
Make Your Own Brown Sugar
So here’s what you do!
First, take a cup of white sugar and put it in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Next, add in one tablespoon of molasses.
Turn on your mixer and mix until both ingredients are thoroughly combined!
And now you have brown sugar!
If you need dark brown sugar, simply add two tablespoons of molasses instead of one! Easy peasy!
You can definitely make this by hand as well, but the mixer makes it come together really quickly and evenly. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you need more brown sugar.
You can use your homemade brown sugar right away in a recipe or you can store it for later!
Have you ever made your own brown sugar?
