Make Your Own Brown Sugar
Now you only need two little things to make your own brown sugar, and if you bake like me, you have them both already on hand....... plain old white sugar and molasses. Really, that's it........ The secret has been revealed, and the universe didn't end!!
Go grab a mixing bowl and for every 1 cup of white sugar, add 1 tablespoon of molasses and whisk it together till there are no clumps. You have just made light brown sugar! Bask in the glory of your beautiful brown sugar.
But wait, your recipe calls for dark brown sugar? No sweat! Dark brown sugar just calls for more molasses. I bump up the ration to 1 cup of white sugar and 2 tablespoons of molasses. Now isn't that simple! Honestly though, if you want, play with the ratios. While the dark brown sugar may taste stronger off the spoon, it bakes just right.
Now aren't you glad you put those car keys down? So what are you waiting for? Go bake!
