I didn't have molasses for a bread recipe and this worked great. My recipe called for milk so I didn't add the hot water in this recipe. It was easy because I just added the sugar and cream of tartar at the point the recipe called for molasses. I rarely have molasses, and now I wonder why I would ever need to buy that sticky stuff that is so difficult to get out of the jar anyway. Serving size is estimated.
To make 1 cup of molasses
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons cream of tartar
- 1⁄4 cup hot water (or other liquid in recipe)
- Combine sugar and cream of tartar with hot water. If you are making a recipe that calls for a liquid, omit the hot water and just add the sugar and molasses.
- If there are other spices in the recipe, increase them just a bit to compensate for the loss of molasses flavor.
