This is just the recipe for brown sugar, not really a substitute.

I'll add one more: This was a life saver!! And easy. At first, the smell of the molasses was really strong when I mixed it with the sugar. I thought it might overpower the cookies I was making. NOT AT ALL. The cookies turned out great. Thanks!

Exactly what I needed when I discovered I was short a 1/4 cup of brown sugar for the chocolate chip cookies I'd promised to make my family tonight. Worked like a charm, after a minute or so of mixing I couldn't tell which was the original brown sugar, and which was the stuff I'd just made. Fantastic!

This is fantastic. I was making cherry crisp and did't have brown sugar. What a lifesaver. Thanks, MaeEast!!

This is a lifesaver. Thank you for posting this wonderful sub. I made half a recipe to make Baked Peach Oatmeal.

So useful! If you're using blackstrap molasses, you might need a little less molasses unless you like really dark brown sugar.
