This is such great information! It’s horrible when you’ve started cooking and realize you don’t have brown sugar!
This is SO helpful!!
Hahaha – the Mission Impossible sound track! Yep – so true! And it’s always those silly things that sending us racing to the store at the last minute, isn’t it? The basic staples that we just assume are always in the pantry? Been there! Great, super-helpful post and a lovely video! Many thanks for another problem solved! 😀
I bet that tastes awesome!!
So easy, so awesome!
Great tip in a pinch!
I’ve actually done this in the past! Great tip.
LOVE this! I can’t tell you how many times I need brown sugar only to be out!
Woah who knew it was that simple to make brown sugar! Love the video!

Recipes like this are a lifesaver, especially with the storm that hit the east coast and so many of us being snowed in!
I am right with you on the panic rush to the store to get brown sugar!! I do it allll the time, you’d think I’d have learnt after the first 5 times?! I didn’t realise it was so easy to make your own though, so you are a life saver! Definitely doing this next time I realise I’ve run out!
This is a really good trick to know, and it’s saved me a number of occasions 🙂
This is so cool! I had no idea you could make your own brown sugar!
I never wouldn’t thought to make my own brown sugar. Now I want to instead of buying it from the store. Thanks for sharing!!
Awesome! One of my husband pet peeves is that I eat the small chunks of brown sugar….I can’t help it! It’s so good!
