Have you ever run out of brown sugar for a recipe? I made this fluffy, golden brown sugar at home in just about 5 minutes. All you need is white sugar, molasses, and an electric or stand mixer. It’s so easy, it’s almost effortless.
I get so excited about simple little things like this, the from scratch kitchen secrets that have been lost somewhere along the way. There’s something so pure and honest about it, almost nostalgic, except I’ve never in my life known a time when brown sugar didn’t come processed and packaged in a bag. Yet here we are, where homemade brown sugar feels like such an accomplishment, a revelation even. Sometimes it’s a triumph to go back to basics.
I immediately put my fresh brown sugar to the test with these delightfully chewy Ginger Brown Sugar Cookies. Never fear, they came out perfectly.
