The two types are Light Brown and Dark Brown. There's also Whole Cane Sugar.
Yes you can. For a cup of light brown sugar you can use dark brown sugar and granulated sugar. You should use 1/2 cup dark brown and 1/2 cup granulated sugar. This will equal 1 cup light brown sugar.
Dark brown sugar has a higher molasses content (it tastes more like dark treacle) than light sugar does.
yes, you can. you can also there is a dark brown sugar that you can use also.
No as it's the same thing. The only difference is dark brown sugar has more molasses in it than light brown sugar. It's a reference to color not fat/calorie content.
Brown sugar is brown because of the presence of molasses. Light brown sugar has 3.5% molasses and dark brown sugar has 6.5%.
Brown sugar is just granulated sugar with molasses added. For every cup of white sugar you need to add 1 1/2 Tablespoons for light brown or 1/4 cup for dark brown sugar. You can change light to dark and dark to light, but you cannot change a brown sugar to white...unless you had some real fancy equipment that would take the molasses out...ha ha ha. Needless to say the dark brown sugar has a much stronger taste so most recipes call for the light brown.
White granulated sugar, caster sugar, light brown sugar, dark brown sugar, Demetra sugar and icing sugar.
Yes it can, and no recipe adjustments are needed. This makes NO SENSE WHEN YOU HAVE TO DILUTE DARK BROWN SUGAR WITH GRANULATED SUGAR TO GET LIGHT BROWN SUGAR. The color is derived from the amount of molasses in the sugar not the color of the molasses. YOU NEED TOP ADD ONE TABLESPOON OF MOLASSES TO THE LIGHT BROWN TO MAKE IT DARK BROWN...OR GO TO WHITE SUGAR, GRANULATED, USE 1 CUP OF THAT AND 1/4 CUP OF MOLASSES. Yes it can....unless you want more taste to your food...then use dark.
You could use dark brown sugar, but the flavour will not be as strong.
= Brown Sugar Substitute = For each 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar called for in a recipe, use 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses plus 1 cup granulated sugar.
