Brown Sugar Substitute and Tips

I will share some cooking tips I've learned over the years here on my blog from time time. Today's tip is:

BROWN SUGAR SUBSTITUTE

Have you ever run out of brown sugar and need some for a recipe? You can make a quick substitute with white granulated sugar and molasses. Make as needed.

1 cup white sugar
2 Tbsp. molasses

Stir together until it resembles brown sugar.

Also, to keep your brown sugar soft, the best trick I've found is to keep your brown sugar in a sealed plastic container, or zipper bag, along with a piece of bread. The bread becomes hard and your sugar stays soft. If your sugar is hard when you need to use it, pop it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time to soften.
