Brown sugar is just white sugar with the addition of molasses. That’s where the extra flavor comes from.
In fact, you can make your own by adding a tablespoon of molasses to a cup of sugar. If you like it darker, add 2 tablespoons of molasses.
We use a lot of brown sugar in our house. Partly because Jim and our youngest daughter like it on their oatmeal in the mornings. And partly because we make a lot of chocolate chip cookies.
Here are a few more recipes that use brown sugar:
- Apple Brown Betty Muffins
- Old Fashioned Spice Cake with Caramel Glaze
- Simple Coffee Cake
- Peach Crisp in the Slow Cooker
- Homemade Baked Beans in the Slow Cooker
In case you’re interested in seeing the Ingredient Spotlight Schedule, here is the May-June list. I added in some foods that you might be harvesting from your garden this summer.
Now it’s your turn. Bring on the brown sugar! Link up any recipe on your blog that uses this sweet ingredient. It doesn’t have to be a recent post, just be sure to link directly to your recipe, not just the main page of your blog. I only ask that you include a link back to Eat at Home in your post. You can link directly to this post or use the button in the sidebar.
