Don't let running out of brown sugar stop you from making your favorite recipes. Make a batch of homemade brown sugar!
Homemade brown sugar is affordable, plus it's more fluffy and delicious than store-bought. It works just exactly as store-bought brown sugar in recipes.

  • How to make sugar. Homemade Brown Sugar - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pour sugar and molasses into a mixing bowl. Mix (I used a paddle attachment on my KitchenAid Stand Mixer) on medium-low speed for about 1 minute. The mixture will be crumbly at this point. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.

    Step 2

    Increase the speed to medium-high and continue to mix until the sugar is all one beautiful golden brown color and there are no more chunks of molasses. The more you mix it, the more air gets into it and the fluffier it will become. Mine took 3-4 minutes total.

  • Step 3

    Store your brown sugar in a sealable bag or an airtight container. Use as you would store bought brown sugar.
