Make Your Own Brown Sugar

This is real brown sugar and tastes fresh - better than grocery stores. It doesn't get hard because of the preservatives. I did not know you could buy brown sugar until I was 25.



  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. molasses for light brown sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp. for dark brown sugar


Pour molasses on to white sugar use your mixer, or a fork to stir till completely blended.

Look on brown sugar ingredients label if you doubt this. Use my recipe and save money

I make 4 lbs. at a time. Its easier and it stays fresh for months in a sealed jar next to your sugar and flour canister.

True brown sugar is unprocessed directly from the sugarcane. If you're just going for color, that's different than the nutrients available from Turbinado or raw or otherwise real brown sugar. The key is unprocessed.
