"Making your own brown sugar is so simple and easy and it tastes exactly like store-bought! You'll never run out of brown sugar if you keep two simple ingredients on hand: white granulated sugar and molasses. Recipe ingredients are for light brown sugar. For dark brown sugar, simply use 2 tablespoons of molasses for every 1 cup of white sugar. To keep it moist, put a slice of bread into the storage container."

I am really pleased with the results. I think how dark it is depends on the type of Molasses. I got a med/dark sugar mix using 1 c sugar to 1 tbsp molasses, then added a bit more sugar, mixing i...

Works great. Easy, inexpensive and ready when you are in need of brown sugar.

Can you just add the white sugar and molasses to your recipe, or do you have to mix them together first?

didn't need any changes and I plan to make it again as often as I have to. thanks for the tip
