Out of brown sugar? Use this simple substitute until you're able to get to the store:


  • granulated sugar


Replace the brown sugar called for in the recipe with an equal amount of granulated sugar.

Note: This substitution may change the taste of your recipe slightly, but the difference should be negligible.

Have granulated sugar and molasses on hand? If so, you can make real brown sugar:
