Last week I was making cookies when I realized I was out of brown sugar. I really did not feel like going to the store and decided to see what I could use instead. I came across a recipe for homemade brown sugar. Did you know that really all brown sugar is, is a mixture of white sugar and molasses? I had no idea! So I gave it a try. Do you know, it worked? And it tasted like brown sugar! I couldn't wait for this morning so I could share it with all of you.
White sugar and molasses, you could use light or dark. I just used what I had on hand which was "mild flavor". 1 cup of sugar to 2 Tbs. Molasses. You can adjust this as well. Using less molasses if you want.
