Sharing is caring!

Making your own brown sugar is so simple and easy and it tastes exactly like store-bought! You’ll never run out of brown sugar if you keep two simple ingredients on hand: white granulated sugar and molasses. The recipe ingredients are for light brown sugar. For dark brown sugar, see the cook’s note. To keep it moist, put a slice of bread into the storage container.


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsulfured molasses


Combine sugar and molasses in a mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer on medium speed, mixing until molasses is completely incorporated.

Store in an airtight container.
