How to soften Brown Sugar

Have you ever been all set to bake something really delicious; that you have been craving for the last couple days, and then go to make it – only to find that all of your brown sugar is rock solid? Ugh! – Or at least that’s what I used to say before I found this easy, simple trick that softens brown sugar in seconds!

All you need:

Small dish
Container with brown sugar in it – rock solid


Place the brown sugar in its container in the microwave with beside it, a small bowl full of water.
Microwave both side by side for about 1 minute; be sure to check it – will crumble in your fingers when softened. The sugar can melt so do not leave it in for too long - the time in the microwave will depend on the quantity of rock solid sugar; if it is still hard after the minute, try another 30 seconds.
You can keep doing this until the sugar is soft.

Beware though – the sugar hardens again quickly (within a couple minutes); so be sure to soften it when you are ready to use it.
