Out of brown sugar? Here's a substitution for those times. This recipe is for dark brown sugar. For light brown sugar add 'only' 1 1/2 tablespoons of molasses. As seen on the Martha Stewart Show.


  1. In a food processor combine both ingredients and process till combined.

I doubled the recipe. And I used it in different recipes asking for brown sugar and it's great. I think I won't buy brown sugar again. I'll always do this recipe. Thanks Dojemi :) Made for Alphabet chef tag game

Works autifully, just takes a few seconds to put together and tastes BETTER than store-bought brown sugar. I always have molasses around for cooking. I will never buy brown sugar again! Thank you.
