Substitute for Powdered Sugar

If you are out of powdered sugar, put regular sugar in the blender and process on high until it turns powdery. Be sure to stir up the sugar on the bottom a couple of times so it all turns out to be the same consistency. Measure out the amount needed for your recipe!

You add corn starch to keep the sugar from clumping and caking. Commercial manufacturers of powedered sugar do this, which I learned of when in college Food Prep. courses.

Yes, it is better with cornstarch added. Here is the formula: Mix 1 cup granulated sugar + 1 tablespoon corn starch in blender until powdery, stirring often.

Thank you sooooooo much! I had no cornstarch like the other recipes said, so I put it in the blender and it worked. I tweaked it a little bit; I added a pinch of flour; when we use to make thickening for gravies, or sauces we would add a little flour in water; so I added flour and it worked. We're making cinnamon rolls.

You also need to add a bit of corn starch. Check the internet for amounts. Maybe this is only if you want to keep the sugar. Never tried, but looked it up one day.

My boyfriend and I are making brownies and frosting and we had no powdered sugar. This saved our frosting. :)

I have a little one who is on a Glueten free, Soy free and Corn free diet, this includes corn starch. I'm going to try it without the corn starch to see if I can make a frosting for his birthday cake. Hope it works.
