Molasses Substitute


Here are a few ways to substitute for molasses. These substitutions may affect the taste of your recipe. Since brown sugar is made from granulated sugar and molasses, I always go with the first option since it’s the closest flavor match, but I’ve heard that the other two can work as well.

Replace one cup of molasses with one of these:

  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup, honey, or maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/4 cup water
