4.5 stars from 2 ratings of Homemade Brown sugar

One day we were making apple pie and discovered we were out of brown sugar, we normally use brown sugar not white sugar in apple recipes as well as many other recipes too. We had a lot of white sugar and some cooking molasses so we decided to make our own brown sugar since all brown sugar is is white sugar mixed with molasses and repackaged and sold as brown sugar. The recipe worked great, we produced a large amount of brown sugar simply by combining the white sugar with a couple of tablespoons of molasses. The exact measurements are given here but you can feel free to adjust the amount of molasses as you see fit, depending on what type of brown sugar you want (ie: How 'brown' you want it to be). Try it out next time you need some brown sugar but do not want to go to the store to get some and you have molasses, white sugar and a mixing bowl available. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups White Sugar, this can be any amount really, depending on your needs
  • 2 tablespoons Cooking Molasses, usually 1 tablespoon per cup of white sugar
  1. Add sugar and molasses into the mixing bowl. It does not matter which order but I suggest adding the sugar first and then pouring the molasses over top of the sugar.
  2. blend together for ten minutes (or less) or until all the little molasses chunks are gone and the sugar is a golden brown in color. If you have added too much molasses, don't worry, just add more white sugar to balance it out.
