How to make a substitute for brown sugar

I have been in Utah, cooking for various family gatherings, for the last week. My sister has a very plethoric pantry. Being that she has everything that any cook would wish for, I was overwhelmed with excitement, and somehow overlooked the brown sugar. There was no time to run to the store, so I ended up just making a substitute, for the brown sugar, to put in my pumpkin pie. This is a quick “how to” for the brown sugar substitute.

Light Brown Sugar Substitute:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses

Dark Brown Sugar Substitute:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses

Using a hand mixer, mix the sugar and molasses mixture until evenly incorporated. The more molasses you add, the darker the sugar will be.
