When preparing baking recipes that call for brown sugar, it’s important to get an accurate measurement. Be certain to pack it tightly in the measuring cup & level with a knife, if necessary. Once you have the proper amount, add it as is to the recipes or crumble through your fingers to break it up to ensure the proper blending takes place.
