Many recipes call for brown sugar, especially cookies. But in Switzerland, you can’t easily get soft packed brown sugar in grocery stores…and even if they have it, it’s pricy. Since brown sugar is just regular white sugar with molasses, why not make it at home? The other part was finding molasses! In the regular stores, the only have Tafelmelasse which is a molasses spread for bread. It’s very thick and syrupy, almost like a different grade of maple syrup. I tried that one out but the robust taste of molasses was greatly missing. So I went to Alnatura which is a Bio Shop (Organic) near me and found Zuckerrohr Melasse (Blackstrap Molasses). So all you need is plain white sugar and molasses, blitz it up in a food processor and you are all set!
