You can easily make your own brown sugar by combining white sugar and molasses.
The reason this works is that brown sugar is a less-refined stage of ordinary white sugar, and molasses is a byproduct of the refining process. Making brown sugar is simply a matter of adding the molasses back into the white sugar — sort of like refining it in reverse.
This recipe uses one tablespoon of molasses for each cup of white sugar, but you can adjust the amount of molasses depending on whether you want your brown sugar lighter or darker.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoons molasses
Combine the sugar and molasses in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly blended.
Store in an airtight container (or, just make as much as you need right now because it's so easy).
