How To Make Homemade Brown Sugar
Did you run out of brown sugar in the middle of a recipe?
Don’t worry, it’s super easy to make your own brown sugar! It is not a complicated or confusing process and only takes less than 3 minutes and only 2 ingredients.
Unlike sugar, molasses has important nutritional properties and health benefits. Virtually all the nutrients in sugar cane remain in this syrup: iron, calcium, copper, manganese, potassium, vitamin C. In addition, molasses has an intense aroma and a low glycemic index.
This recipe makes 1 cup of brown sugar and uses one tablespoon of molasses for every cup of white sugar. You can adjust the amount of molasses to control how dark or light the brown sugar will be.
If you have both ingredients at hand, all you need to do is combine them. You need 1 tablespoon of molasses for every 200g of sugar.
Mix them well until you get a fluffy and homogeneous brown sugar.
How do you store?
Store in a container that can be easily opened, but is not affected by temperature or other conditions. It must also be resistant to moisture and strong odors.
