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.
