Make Brown Sugar with these 2 simple ingredients! #BrownSugar

We love baking but occasionally run out of the necessities used to bake, such as brown sugar. And from where we live the distance to the store is a waste of gas and time for only one item!

What do you do when you need a substitute? Google of course, lol!

We weren’t really sure how this recipe would turn out but had a few bags of white sugar and a container of molasses and totally thought this idea was the simplest ever! And just couldn’t resist testing it out!

At first it smelled like molasses and sugar but did the job nonetheless. The next day we couldn’t believe how much it smelled and tasted like actual brown sugar! Obviously, the longer you let it sit/
It makes a person wonder if this is how they make brown, golden and so many other types of “brown” sugar?

To make 1 Cup Light Brown Sugar:

  • Combine 1 cup granulated sugar with 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses
To make 1 Cup Dark Brown Sugar:
  • Combine 1 cup granulated sugar with 1/4 cup molasses

Be sure to mix it well as it will becomefluffier the more it’s blended.

A huge thanks to Martha Stewart for the recipe  and the money we’ll be saving making our own brown sugar 🙂

*There’s even an awesome tip that’ll help you to stop throwing out those hard clumps of sugar. Which is basically like throwing out money!

Do you have any quick and easy substitutions that you use when baking essentials aren’t at hand? We’d love to hear them.

  1. I need to start using molasses more. I keep hearing of so many great recipes

  2. Well now I have to remember this, I’m always running out of brown sugar, and I have white sugar and a container of molasses, must be the blonde coming out in me to not think of doing this..lol

  3. This is a good way to use up molasses that you have sitting in the back of the cupboard. I should really use it up or it’ll go to waste. Thanks for this fab idea. I prefer the taste of brown sugar over white any day!

  4. Very useful linfo! Will be trying this for sure! Always running out of brown sugar. thanks!
