Brown Sugar Recipe

Today is Friday so I'm baking Challah Bread, the recipe calls
for 1/3 of brown sugar, eeks, I don't have brown sugar
and I don't have a car to run to the store...that's ok I'll
walk up the street to the Dollar General a pick up a bag...
it's raining...sigh...what to do...think...think...ok
I'll just sweek he recipe and add white
wait I wonder if I can make brown sugar :-D
I just googled 'brown sugar recipe' and
yep it's there and here is
the recipe:
1 cup of white sugar
1-2 table spoons of molasses
mix well
That's it!
I only used 1/3 of white sugar
1 tsp molasses!
This is great because I use brown sugar all the time, it's expensive
at the store but now I can just whip it up
as needed at the fraction of the cost!!


  1. I will have to remember this! Thanks and Have a blessed Sabbath!

  2. Great post. I can't wait to try the recipe.

  3. I've done that in a pinch. I like dark brown sugar, so it works well for me. Great improvising! *Ü*

  4. What else is molasses good for anyway? I bought a jar once thinking it was like jam, and it tasted HORRIBLE!

  5. Bridget~LOL...I think it taste terrible too...I used some in a home made maple flavor syrup...the molasses was WAY TOO STRONG...that's why I had I won't use it for maple syrup but will be using it for brown are so funny...still laughing!!

  6. Yeah that's how i learn what's good to eat: Just trying it. But i've gotten sick on more than one occasion for it! (Sushi particularly)
    But since i am a horrible cook anyway, sometimes i can't tell if something is bad because i just don't like it, or if i made it wrong!
