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 1 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 white sugar
- 1 tablespoon molasses
Combine the white sugar and molasses in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly blended.
Store the brown sugar in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out.
