Light or Dark Brown Sugar
Making your own brown sugar is so simple and easy and it tastes exactly like store-bought! You'll never run out of brown sugar if you keep two simple ingredients on hand: white granulated sugar and molasses. The recipe ingredients are for light brown sugar. For dark brown sugar, see the cook's note. To keep it moist, put a slice of bread into the storage container.
Recipe Summary test
To make dark brown sugar, follow recipe instructions, but increase molasses to 2 tablespoons.
The 16 servings equals 16 tablespoons, which is the equivalent of 1 cup. Should you need only 1/2 cup, reduce the recipe's serving size to 8.
