How to Make Brown Sugar

Do you ever get a craving for brownies or cookies, then start gathering all the ingredients only to realize you are out of brown sugar?  Well, I do, quite often, and it's very frustrating!  Then I remembered hearing on one of my Food Network shows how easy brown sugar is to make at home using only two ingredients.  I did a quick search and found the measurements on eHow Food.  It's so simple and packs more fresh flavor than the store bought.


1 cup granulated sugar
1 T molasses

In a medium mixing bowl, add the sugar and molasses and use a hand mixer to combine.  Use a spatula to scrape down the sides as needed and continue to beat until all the molasses is combined.  It will take up to 5 minutes, so be patient and you will have light and fluffy brown sugar.

Note:  If you want to make dark brown sugar, use 2 T molasses per cup of sugar.


  1. I love this - thanks so much for sharing. My blog post for today is substitutions, and I added this one, along with your blog title. Fantastic idea!

  2. Thanks so much for this recipe! Someone told me she made her own brown sugar and now I will try it your way. Love it! I'm your newest follower and so glad I found your great blog. I'll be looking around now!

  3. Thanks for sharing this tip. Now that I know this, I wouldn't need to buy so many different type of sugar. All I would need will be just caster and molasses to create another 2 kind of sugars! Hurray!


I love that you stopped by and are taking the time to leave a comment! I really enjoy reading them all. Thanks so much!
