How to Make Brown Sugar
The other night my family wanted me to make Chocolate Chip Cookies. As I started to assemble my ingredients, I realized I was OUT OF BROWN SUGAR! Crud! So I asked the wonderful TCB facebook fans if I could just use extra white sugar……..NO! But I learned from those amazing people on how to make brown sugar! Once they told me, I remember my mother doing this too!
This is such a valuable recipe to remember, because no matter how organized you are, you may find yourself in my situation with no brown sugar. Worst yet, you may have started your recipe, only to find out the brown sugar is hard as a rock.
When you learn how to make brown sugar, you’re never out. Never!

I use about one cup sugar for every tablespoons molasses, but the key is to add a little sugar, a little molasses and blend. And repeat, blending in between. If you just dump it all in, you risk creating more lumps. And no body wants lumpy brown sugar, right?
I used my magic bullet, but if you need a larger batch, a blender will work.
What darker or lighter brown sugar? Start out with small amounts of molasses and continue to add more as you blend until you achieve the desired color and taste. The darker will be stronger.
So easy! I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to store bought brown sugar. I think it tasted better than store bought. It’s always nice to know you can find easy ways to substitute ingredients in a pinch.
I love the flavor…….it seems a bit bolder and being able to whip up a batch whenever needed is a plus. You’ll want to keep it in an airtight container. This container above isn’t bad for small batches, but it would best to place it in a ziplock baggy.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
- Using a small blender, add ½ cup of sugar.
- Start by adding only one tablespoon molasses. Blend
