Hi Everyone! There is nothing worse (well, at least in the kitchen!) than getting ready to bake something, then reaching for the brown sugar and finding out it’s as hard as a rock! Here are two simple tricks to help you! The first is one to help the brown sugar stay soft, and the second is what you can do to make it usable again if it has hardened.
1. To keep brown sugar soft, store it in an air-tight container or bag. If you are using a bag, make sure you let out all the air before closing it. And to make sure the brown sugar really stays soft, add a couple of marshmallows to the bag or container!
2. If it’s too late and your brown sugar has already hardened, you can grate it to make it soft again! The texture will be slightly different, but you will still be able to use it!
Do you have any other tips & tricks you use to keep brown sugar soft? Leave me a comment if you do!
