Brown Sugar

Okay, so I have/had a problem today. I wanted to make Cinnamon rolls for a sister in the Branch that I visit teach. She had foot surgery last Friday. So I made the dough and let it rise. When it was time to roll it out and add the butter and brown sugar-cinnamon mixture on it I realized ALL my brown sugar was as hard as a rock. I looked for my extra bag and it too was hard. OOOHHHH! What was I going to do? I did not want to run to the store and buy more so I thought. I know if I put a piece of bread in the container it will put moisture back in the sugar but that takes like 2 days. I need it NOW!!!!

Ahhh Haaaa! What if I put some of the brown sugar in a bowl and microwave it? Well, I did just that. I put it in for 1 minute then mixed it up then back in for another minute. Took it out and it was soft to the touch. All I had to do was loosen up the chunks.

So now you know how to soften brown sugar.

Have a great weekend! :o)


  1. I read taht if you put a slice of bread in a sealed contianer with hard brown sugar, it will soften right up.
    Good Luck!

  2. Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog the other day! I totally think you should paint any and all laminate countertops to be granite look a likes ;) Thanks for the tip about brown sugar! Also if you just throw half a slice of bread in when you open the bag the first time then seal tightly it wouldn't get hard for a very very long time ;)

  3. Very nice, who would of thought--I love reading your blog!!! You do alot of neat cool things.

  4. one time I was completley out and needed some and was too lazy to head to the store, so googled substitutions, and you can make your own with brown sugar and regular... turned out great....
