How To Make Brown Sugar

I went to make cookies this weekend and realized I was out of brown sugar!


I remembered hearing that you could make it with granulated sugar, so I did some research and discovered it was the easiest thing in the world to make! All you need is a little bit of molasses and granulated sugar. I needed a cup and Β a half of brown sugar for my recipe so I ended up using about 1 tablespoon plus a teaspoon of molasses.

Easy. Peasy.

Apparently it is still winter in Chicago and I am so grateful that I was able to get away to San Antonio with my Mom this past weekend. I’ll share some photos of our fun and more importantly, food, as soon as I can!

Recipe: Homemade Brown Sugar


1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Tablespoon Molasses


Pour molasses into sugar and stir until completely saturated and combined. It will be a bit goopy at first but stir as best you can and it will eventually absorb into the sugar.

You can add more molasses or a bit less depending on how rich you want the flavor to be!
