Make Your Own Brown Sugar

 We’ve all been there.

The butter’s softened, the eggs are room temperature. You’ve got everything ready to make an incredible batch of cookies.

And then you go for the brown sugar, and you’re totally out 😭😭😭😭😭 

You just bought a new bag last week (or three new bags, if you’re me). Do you really have to go to the store *right now*?!

Well, no. All you need are two ingredients and a food processor! 

Place one cup of granulated sugar in the bowl of the food processor, along with a tablespoon of unsulphered molasses. Then, let it go for 3-5 minutes, scraping down the bowl as necessary.

At first, it might look a little clumpy and weird, but then, suddenly… 

 You’ve got light brown sugar! 

If you need dark brown sugar, just whirl in an extra tablespoon of molasses! 

You can use your homemade brown sugar to make these

Or these.

Or this rockin’ banana bread. Or pretty much any recipe that asks for the stuff.

Store any leftovers in an airtight container or zip-top bag with all the excess air pressed out. Easy.

So the next time you’re out of brown sugar, don’t grab your car keys or subway pass. Just grab the food processor 😊
