How to Make Brown Sugar

by Dina Jeffcoat

Brown sugar is easy and quick to make your self from 2 ordinary pantry items you probably already have. Why bother to buy it?


  • 1 Cup Granulated white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses or more to darknesses of sugar desired
  • Bowl
  • Fork or mixer
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your supplies.

    Step 2

    Add your ingredients to the bowl.

    Step 3

    You can mix with a fork. Cut the molasses into the sugar like you would with butter. Don't just stir or it will take FOREVER... Just press the molasses into the sugar.

    Step 4

    Or use a mixer. The mixer will make short work of combining the sugar and molasses.

    Step 5

    Here us the end result. I added 2 Tbsp. of molasses to my cup of sugar for a darker color and richer flavor.
