I was making cookies and went to grab the brown sugar and realized I was out. I had some molasses on hand, so I decided to make my own! It couldn't be simpler. It only requires two ingredients!
This made light brown sugar. Just add more molasses if you want a darker brown sugar. I mixed this together by hand and it took less than 5 minutes. If you don't want to mix it up by hand, you could also use a mixer. I had a half made batch of cookies in my mixer, or I probably would have used the mixer. I plan on making a big batch and not buying it in the store anymore.
Homemade Brown Sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 Tbsp molasses (more if you want darker)
Mix together sugar and molasses until all the molasses is incorporated into the sugar. Store in an air-tight container.
