As someone who has lived abroad for a while now, I know that finding substitutes can be invaluable for cooking abroad.
In many countries Brown Sugar’s availability is limited to either “Dark Brown Sugar” or no Brown Sugar at all.
So here is how to make light brown sugar!
FROM WHITE SUGAR
– Brown sugar is just white sugar + molasses, so it’s pretty easy to create – No substitute needed!
- 1 Cup of White Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of Molasses
FROM DARK BROWN SUGAR
– Dark Brown Sugar contains twice the normal amount of molasses.
- Add 1/2 of the Brown Sugar called for via Dark Brown Sugar
- For the remaining portion, use White Sugar.
