A couple of weeks ago I was making pancake syrup for some really sweet college kids and realized that I didn't have enough brown sugar to make as much as I wanted them to have. I went ahead and gave them partial bottles and promised them a refill once their bottles were empty. In the meantime I started thinking...there has to be a way to make brown sugar from home.
After a few minutes of searching Pinterest I found a recipe from Martha Stewart's website. I decided to give it a try since I was making a sweet potato souffle that afternoon and needed brown sugar for the topping.
The steps were super simple (check out the recipe for exact amounts):
1. You basically take white sugar
2. Pour in molasses
3. Mix until well combined and you have awesome brown sugar!
Here's a photo of the souffle topping where I used the homemade brown sugar (brown sugar, pecans, flour & butter).
