Well, we're gearing back up post baby, a little slowly, but back on track! Thanks for sticking with me!
I ran across the recipe for brown sugar some time ago, but had no need to ever try it, since brown sugar is so inexpensive. Last night, however, I needed half a cup of brown sugar and found my pantry lacking. I did have granulated sugar and molasses, which are the only ingredients you need.
You will need
1 cup granulated sugar ($3.29 per 5 lb, $3.29/80oz = $.04 x 7.5oz = $.31)
1 Tbsp molasses (2 Tbsp for dark brown sugar) ($3.45 per 12fl.oz, $3.45/12fl.oz = $.29 x .5fl.oz = $.14)
Put the sugar in a small bowl and drizzle the molasses over it. Mix with a fork until fully incorporated.
For real, that’s it.
|...and after. So simple!|
$.45 per cup.
$.37 per cup.
This took no time, but it’s still more expensive than store bought. I will continue to Buy It for the most part, but it's still a great trick to have up your sleeve in a pinch!
