Have you ever come across a recipe that called for powdered sugar, or icing sugar, and realized that all you have is plain ol’ sugar? Well, you’ve almost solved your problem…
I never have icing sugar on hand because I only generally use raw cane sugar, honey and pure maple syrup as sweeteners, but once in a while, I come across a recipe that calls for it. Recently, it was required in a recipe for a lemon glaze that I wanted for on top of my Lemon, Zucchini, Raspberry Loaf. I was just about to skip the glaze all together, when a voice inside reached out to me and said, “but Carly, what is powered sugar?”
Okay, maybe it wasn’t exactly a spiritual awakening, but it did dawn on me that powdered sugar is just freaking powdered sugar!
So folks, I’m about to share with you the easiest how-to-tutorial that I’ve ever shared on this blog. Be prepared to be amazed…
How to Make Powdered Sugar
Add a cup of sugar, either plain white sugar or organic raw cane sugar (my preference), to a blender.
Blend on high for about 5 minutes, pulsing periodically, until you have sugar-dust, aka, powder sugar.
There is no step 3! You just made powdered sugar 🙂 Just store in a jar until you need it!
