When you learn how to make brown sugar muffins you will get a unique “molassesy” flavor in these as well as other baked goods. This flavor and the characteristic brown color are because brown sugar is made by adding molasses to white sugar. The molasses is usually taken from the cane sugar rather than beet because the flavor is considered to be much better.
If you are learning how to make brown sugar muffins and you do not have brown sugar, it can be made by mixing molasses with white granulated sugar. Mix 1 tablespoon of molasses with each 1 cup of sugar for light brown and more molasses if you want it darker. When I write recipes I will say only brown sugar for the light brown which is what most of the recipes use. On occasion, I will write a recipe for dark brown sugar; in this event I will specify “dark brown sugar”. For any recipe for brown sugar it is always “firmly packed” in measuring cup unless otherwise specified.
These muffins are prized for their rich deep caramel flavor and moist texture. They are great to serve as a breakfast sweet bread, on a brunch buffet and just for a snack anytime of the day. When you have learned how to make brown sugar muffin recipes you will find that flavor abounds from the brown sugar. Spices like cinnamon, cloves and allspice only help to enhance the brown sugar flavor. As you will see when making these recipes, the delicious flavor of the sugar blends well with other ingredients like raisins and applesauce.
