I found myself unexpectedly running low on brown sugar after a failed BBQ sauce attempt and, thankfully, remembered I'd just saved this *recipe*. I'd give this 5 stars, however, the preparation method did NOT work for me, it merely made our counters/floors a sticky mess and made me cranky. After the THIRD bowl change/hand mixer attempt, I decided to use my mini food processor and that was CLUTCH. It made short work of this, w/no mess, and gave me the results I desired. I'm still not sure what differentiates between light/dark? I made as written and the result was LIGHT, so if you're looking for dark, perhaps start w/doubling the molasses and go from there. THANKS for the save, JillH!
I will never buy Brown or Dark sugar from a store ever again this is a awesome recipe I am so glad I found this easy to make and store I feel if you store it over night the flavors develop better just to let you know but if you need it it is good to use right after you make at love this recipe truly do and thank you JillH for sharing this with us
For those not willing to drag out the mixer, put the sugar in a microwave safe bowl and put the molasses on top. Microwave it for 5-10 seconds and mix with a spoon. I microwaved it twice and it mixed in easy
I will never buy prepared brown sugar again. This has such a robust and complex flavor and texture, you realize that the quality of your ingredients is key to your recipe. I made this using 1 cup white sugar and 1 cup raw cane sugar. I made a light batch and a dark batch. I have since used them in two separate recipes and found that the flavor is remarkable. Try this!! Thank you for the recipe.
I love this! Brown sugar is ridiculously expensive. This is such a great and inexpensive way to make and it's fresh every time! I found that using two of my high heat heavy duty cooking spatulas and pressing the sugar and molasses together did a fine job and I was done in less than 5 min. It did a but of muscle/elbow grease... but it worked out great! Thanks so much
Very useful! I'll never buy dark or light brown sugar again. Made it up in minutes and most importantly you can control the amount of "dark" or "light" you want allowing you another avenue for creativity in your cooking.
I am really pleased with the results. I think how dark it is depends on the type of Molasses. I got a med/dark sugar mix using 1 c sugar to 1 tbsp molasses then added a bit more sugar mixing it gently with a small whisk. My mixer would send it every everywhere as one reviewer mentioned. Brown sugar is crossed off my grocery list now.
