What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup regular granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon molasses
Step 1: Add Sugar
Place one cup of sugar into a mixing bowl. Make sure to use granulated sugar.
Step 2: Add Molasses
Add one tablespoon of molasses to the sugar.
Note: There are different kinds of molasses. Light or mild molasses, as the name suggests, has a lighter color as well as a sweeter taste. Blackstrap molasses, meanwhile, is darker and is more bitter. Just remember the darker the color, the stronger the taste so be sure to choose the right one, depending on what you prefer and what you’re using the brown sugar for.
Step 3: Mix Well
Mix the sugar and molasses together with a fork. If you’re using an electric hand mixer, make sure you set it on low speed. Otherwise, sugar will fly around everywhere! Just keep mixing until the molasses is perfectly incorporated with the sugar.
Simply adjust the amount of molasses if you want the brown sugar to be lighter or darker. Once the brown sugar is ready, you can either use it immediately or store it in an air-tight container.
