I ran out of powdered sugar today and decided to make my own. Since my DD (darling daughter) bought me a Magic Bullet for Christmas I used that to make the sugar. It was fast and so easy and the clean up was a snap. You can use raw cane sugar or plain white sugar for this. I added the extra 1 tablespoon of sugar in this recipe because Zaar wouldn't let me publish this with only one ingredient.
- Using the small cup and the cross blade on the magic bullet, fill to about 1/2 capacity with the sugar. Pulse several times until the sugar gets powdery. I counted about 15 seconds. What could be simpler? Use in place of store bought powdered sugar.
Real powdered sugar has cornstarch added to it. My niece is alergic to corn so until I found this we had to be careful not to use powdered sugar around her. You might want to be cautious using this in recipies that actually need the cornstarch part of the powdered sugar. This is an excellent substitute. Thanks for sharing!
OM GOSH!!! It tasted better to me,also. I have a low tolernece to corn,also. AND corn surup is still in almost everything,cept Hunts brands. If I only use the Magic Bullet for this, It is sooo worth it. Put it in the small container,covered with lid..good to go, And shaker lids...WOW,Thanks JOEY...will look at your other recepies!
I do the same thing with my coffee grinder. ABout half the price of buying powdered sugar. But true, be careful of the cornstarch consideration as brought up by other reviewers. Sometimes it matters, sometimes it doesn't.
