Homemade Brown Sugar

I don't know about you but this time of year I go through a TON of brown sugar. It seems like everything I make in the month of December calls for brown sugar in the recipe. As I was visiting Mia over at Aspiring Homemaker, I came across this recipe for brown sugar and just had to give it a try. It is so simple and easy to make.

Brown Sugar:
For every 1 cup sugar,
add 1 1/2 TBSP molasses

Put both ingredients in a bowl, blend together.

I was very pleased with the way it came out. The texture and the way it packs is exactly like store bought brown sugar. The only difference is that there is a bit of molasses smell to it. My sister suggested adding a little vanilla flavoring to it, but I have not tried that yet.
Have any of you ever made and used your own brown sugar before? I never have before, but you knew that this frugal female just COULDN'T pass it up!

We have done this in a pinch when we were out and in the middle of a recipe. Actually, we've learned a lot of neat tricks in the kitchen that way over the years. You would think we would learn to check for the ingredients before we start baking, eh?
