Have you ever wanted to make cookies and then you went to your brown sugar jar and it was empty? Aagh that is seriously the worst.
Or, your brown sugar has gotten too hard to even be usable?
Maybe I’m the only one who has problems like this, but I am guessing I am not alone. And now I have found a solution! Homemade brown sugar.
Homemade brown sugar is actually really simple, its made from just two ingredients: molasses and white sugar.
I think the molasses flavor is a little bit stronger in the homemade version, but it still tastes delicious (and this is coming from a girl who likes to eat a spoonful of brown sugar when she’s making cookies). Also it makes no taste difference in a recipe. So win win.
And molasses should be an ingredient you keep around any way, so that you can make these baked beans. And molasses will last a while on your shelf, so that’s great new too.
Homemade Brown Sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 TBS molasses **
** Try adding more or less molasses depending how light or dark you want your sugar to be.
1. In a medium bowl add molasses to the sugar.
2. Mix together with a whisk until molasses is thoroughly mixed in and no longer clumpy. (This takes a few minutes)
Enjoy a big spoonful of this delicious and fresh homemade brown sugar. And then use it in your favorite cookie recipe or on top of oatmeal!
Store in an air tight container.
