Homemade Brown Sugar
If I had a dime for every time I have run out of brown sugar when I was cooking and baking, I would be a wealthy woman! Since both Mike and I spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen, we quite often will run out of items needed for our recipes. I try to keep a running list on the reusable shopping list but too often one of us will forget to add to it.
I was all set to enjoy my oatmeal for breakfast yesterday morning. I was craving brown sugar on my oatmeal. I hit the pantry scouring for a new bag because the brown sugar canister was empty. I guess the hubby used up the last of the brown sugar and had not added it to the shopping list. GRRRR! I was not a happy woman, ha ha.
To my amazement, you can make your own homemade brown sugar with just two simple ingredients. The next time you find yourself in a pinch, you will be thanking me for this recipe, lol. Just grab some sugar and molasses. Then toss it in your food processor and give it a whirl. You could also use a mixer if you do not have a food processor.
1 cup Sugar
1 tbsp Molasses
Combine ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until well blended.
Store remaining brown sugar in an airtight container.
I love that the internet is so full with information. This recipe will save me when in a pinch. It seems so frequent that I run out of kitchen staples and need something to save me. This was one of those recipes. I love it! It tasted the same as prepared brown sugar.
Do you find yourself running low on items when you are in the middle of cooking or baking? I wonder if you have a meltdown the way I do, ha ha.
