Hi, I’m Anya! We keep a long list of recipes of kitchen staples that people typically buy at the store that can easily be made at home. These are things we make regularly to save a little money & we are slowly working through the list to share them here with you.
Making homemade brown sugar is both easy & convenient. Since we always have bulk sugar & molasses on hand & brown sugar seems to only come in those tiny & expensive bags, it just makes more sense for us to make our own. Brown sugar is something we go through quickly with all the baking we do around here, so those bags don’t ever seem to last very long. Fortunately, it only takes about 10 minutes to whip up a fresh batch whenever we need more.

Homemade Brown Sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp molasses
- Combine the ingredients in a large bowl
- Using a wooden spoon or firm spatula, start working the molasses into the sugar until fully combined & there are no more lumps of molasses in the sugar.
- Place in an airtight container or zip-top bag & store in a cool, dry place.
This will take some heavy stirring, you may even want to use your stand mixer & the paddle attachment on the lowest setting to speed things along. Just keep stirring & working the molasses in & before you know it you have beautiful, golden brown sugar.
