Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup (8 oz/240g) white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon molasses (treacle)
Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup (8 oz/240g) white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons molasses (treacle)
  1. Combine sugar and molasses in a mixing bowl. Using your fingertips rub in the molasses until the molasses is completely incorporated and the sugar turns brown.

  2. Store in an air-tight container for months. Because of the moisture, brown sugar has a tendency to clump together, to prevent this add a slice of white bread in the container and that will keep the sugar dry and fine.
