Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsulphured molasses for light brown sugar, 2 to 3 tablespoons for dark brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the sugar and molasses until completely incorporated. Use or store in an airtight container. Use a brown sugar saver to keep it from hardening.
  2. If it does become hard, you can still add the soaked brown sugar saver to soften it. You can also add a slice of bread for a few hours, which will soften it again.
