“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.” - by JillH
Original recipe yields 1 cup brown sugar
- Combine sugar and molasses in a mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer on medium speed, mixing until molasses is completely incorporated.
- Store in an air-tight container.

"Have been doing this for a while. :)..." See more"
"I found myself unexpectedly running low on brown sugar after a failed BBQ sauce attempt and, thankfully, remembered I'd just saved this *recipe*. I'd give this 5 stars, however, the preparation metho..." See mored did NOT work for me, it merely made our counters/floors a sticky mess and made me cranky. After the THIRD bowl change/hand mixer attempt, I decided to use my mini food processor and that was CLUTCH. It made short work of this, w/no mess, and gave me the results I desired. I'm still not sure what differentiates between light/dark? I made as written and the result was LIGHT, so if you're looking for dark, perhaps start w/doubling the molasses and go from there. THANKS for the save, JillH!"
"I will never buy Brown or Dark sugar from a store ever again this is a awesome recipe I am so glad I found this easy to make and store I feel if you store it over night the flavors develop better just..."
