Brown Sugar Baking Hack


You guys…the other day I went to make MY FAVORITE COOKIES,and I opened up my brown sugar container and the sugar was as HARD AS A ROCK!!  Ok, I will admit it…I panicked because I needed these cookies to be done ASAP, and there was no time to run to the grocery store!!



I called on my old friend, Google, to help me with my problem! (I should have called my MOM- she would have known what to do!)  Anywho…Google suggested this…

  1. Place a damp paper towel in the container
  2. Microwave the container in 20 second increments until the brown sugar is soft
  3. Use a fork to break up any lumps in the brown sugar
  4. Use as usual.


I tried it, and It WORKED!!!  I was SO HAPPY!!!  I think I might have even startled Queen Minnie from her royal nap with my giddiness!!


and the cookie bars turned out SUPER GREAT!!!!

    I have tips for softening brown sugar, but no hurry up tips that include the wet paper towel. Very good tip, indeed. I do know that the microwave will soften it even without the wet paper towel, but I like your method best. Thanks!
