Making Brown Sugar 2


Making your own brown sugar can definitely be more cost effective than buying brown sugar and the bonus of making your own brown sugar is that it is amazingly simple! Today I’ll show you how to make brown sugar and tomorrow, I’ll show you how to make the Brown Sugar Body Glaze from our Recipes Section.

Collect needed supplies:
White Granulated Sugar
Molasses (I’m using Grandma’s Unsulphured Original Molasses)
Mixing Bowl
Mixer (Hand style or Stand style)
Measuring Cups
Measuring Spoons
Cooking Spray or Oil
Container for finished brown sugar

Recipe:
1 cup White Granulated Sugar
1 – 2 tablespoons Molasses

Measure sugar into the mixing bowl. Before measuring the molasses, lightly coat the measuring spoon with the cooking spray or oil. Now measure the molasses and then pour over the sugar in the mixing bowl. Mix well until you can’t see any more clumps of molasses. Now you shouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the brown sugar you just made and brown sugar purchased at the grocery store.

Molasses Notes:

You can use any molasses you desire. The Grandma’s Unsulphured Original Molasses will create a golden or light brown sugar, while a more robust variety up to blackstrap will create a dark brown sugar.

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
