I use this alot because it is economical. I like to use less molasses also and to make ahead to keep in ziplock bags. I recommend this quite often simply because it"s easy, budget friendly and good. Thank you for saving me alot of money and trips to grocery stores.

YEAH!!! Tasted just the same as store bought, I had some bananas in the freezer (I stick them in there when they start to go bad) and I defrosted them overnight knowing their viability was limited, I started my banana bread as soon as the kids and hubby left this morning and wouldn't you know it no brown sugar, being a 1 car household my only hope of getting some was hubby bringing it home with him 13 hours from now and baking well into the night! You saved my hide and my banana bread!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!

MaeEast you are a lifesaver! I was in the middle of making Marie's Slice and Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies, #121571, when I discovered I was out of brown sugar. (I'm about 15 miles from the nearest grocery store). This worked out very well and I believe made the cookies even a bit softer than usual. The dough had a pretty strong molasses flavor at first, but after it chilled awhile it lost it. Thanks again for the great rescue recipe!

I've used this recipe with 2 T molasses for years for light brown sugar. I use 4 T molasses for dark brown sugar. Both are great and I prefer over store bought.

This is better tasting than real brown sugar. If I'm feeling too lazy to mix the molasses with the sugar for a recipe, I just add the molasses to the wet ingredients. It saves about 5 minutes of mixing by hand.
