If you’re making your own pantry items from scratch, definitely add this one to your virtual recipe book.

Whether you ran out of brown sugar in the middle of a recipe. Or maybe yours is rock hard because it wasn’t properly stored (happens to me all the time!). Or, maybe your grocery stores out of all the things right now like mine and so many others. Well, this recipe will help you make your own brown sugar in a pinch!

Can you make brown sugar without molasses?
