You’re probably have a great recipe to make and you’re here because you googled “how to make brown sugar.” Don’t fear, I’m here to help you… but first a story which might seem a little similar to your own.
The other night, I looked through the fridge and cupboards for inspiration as to what to make for dinner. I decided to make Teriyaki salmon on a bed of rice with steamed vegetables on the side.
The salmon needed to be marinated for at least an hour before baking so I got to work immediately… and then IT happened. There was no brown sugar to be found. How could I make Teriyaki sauce without brown sugar?
Of course, I did what any other desperate person, who does not want to leave the house, does… I searched the Internet for a brown sugar substitute.
What do you know? Within minutes I had my solution.Here's what to do when you're out of brown sugar! #recipe #cooking Click To Tweet
I was so excited that I had to share it with you. Brown sugar is simply white sugar with molasses mixed into it.
HOW TO MAKE BROWN SUGAR
1 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp molasses
Add both ingredients to a bowl. Mix well until thoroughly combined.
How easy was that???!!! I was so impressed with the results I fed a teaspoon of the brown sugar to my husband. He couldn’t believe I could make brown sugar!!!
As soon as I finished my sauce I took the salmon out of the fridge. It was no good. Unfortunately, the Internet couldn’t help me with a substitute for salmon fillets but at least I learned how to make brown sugar!!!
That’s awesome Jennifer! But what if you don’t have molasses? Molasses isn’t something I normally keep around. Sorry to hear your Salmon was no good! On the bright side I can relate to you a little more now that you don’t seem so perfect! LOL!!!
I’m pretty sure ingredient substitutions is what the internet was made for! Love it!!! Too bad about the salmon. I think I would have opted for popcorn after that ;)
Ah man… Bad salmon after all of that? That stinks.
Ooo awesome! I had a similar dilemma with brown sugar a couple of weeks ago! I was making gingerbread and my brown sugar was hard as a rock and I didn’t have hours and hours to soften it with apples or bread. I managed to scrape off enough but I’ll keep your recipe in mind next time!
