How To Make Brown Sugar
Granulated Sugar:- 1 Cup
Molasses:- 1 Tbsp
1) Place the sugar and molasses into the bowl of a food processor and mix until the molasses is completely incorporated into the sugar, approximately 1 minute.
2)Stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl.
3) Place in an airtight container and store for up to a month.
For Dark Brown Sugar simply increase the molasses to 2 Tbsp
Avoid adding too much molasses, since this will change the moisture level of the mixture and could affect the cookies or cakes you're making with the brown sugar.
If you accidentally add too much molasses, make up for it by putting more white sugar in the bowl.
