The caption pretty much says it all. I was making apple bread today, and I realized after I had measured out the flour that I only had enough brown sugar for one loaf, but I wanted to make two. Bummer, right? WRONG! I had bought molasses yesterday, and I had white sugar…voila! I cup sugar + 1 tablespoon molasses + lots of mixing with a fork = homemade brown sugar. It totally worked, and I felt fancy. Almost fancy enough to shake off the post-Thanksgiving blues I seem to have every year.
Little things, I tell you.
