DIY Brown Sugar

There is nothing worse than starting to cook or bake, only to realize you are missing the one key ingredient you really need. When it comes to baking, brown sugar  is usually the one item that seems to run out right in the middle of a recipe. The good news is, if you have run out of brown sugar but still have some sugar on hand you can make your own version of brown sugar.  It works exactly the same as brown sugar and won’t take long very long to whip up! Check out the recipe below to make your own DIY brown sugar:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 Tablespoon Of Molasses
  • 1 Cup Of White Granulated Sugar


  1. Start by deciding how much brown sugar you will need. The ratio for this recipe should be 1 tablespoon of molasses to 1 cup of white sugar. Combine as much as you need for your recipe.
  2. Stir this mixture either by hand or with an electric mixer. The sugar and molasses may seem like it doesn’t mix together but after some elbow grease it will start to look light and fluffy.  Continue to mix until it has reached it’s desired consistency. If you need darker brown sugar, up the amount of molasses.
  3. Once sugar is light and has reached its desired look, use sugar as needed.
  4. For storing: Store sugar in an air tight container and stir as needed.
