Here's the simple recipe:
- 1 cup (200g) white sugar
- 1 tablespoon (15 mL) molasses
Yup, that's it. I bet you can even guess the rest! Get a fork and mix them together. Or use your Magic Bullet. Or your mixer, or whatever blows your skirt up. I went the fork route because it ensured the easiest clean-up.
Store your new homemade brown sugar in cute little jars because it's sweet and kitschy. A ziplock bag will work too, but fewer style points.
Oh, you know what? Don't have molasses? That's fine! Try maple syrup! Agave works too. They all just provide a different flavor, but the goal here is to get a stickier, denser sugar to work with.
Did you know that's how they make brown sugar? Probably. You're all very clever. But in case you didn't before, you do now!
