Making Powdered Sugar
Have you ever gone to your cupboard to grab your powdered sugar and found that the container is bone dry? You don’t have to time to run to the grocery store or you only need a small amount and it isn’t worth the drive. Did you know that you can make your own from regular sugar?
You can make your own if you have regular sugar and corn starch (optional) and a blender or food processor. It does make a bit of a mess but it can save you time and money if you are out.
DIY Powdered Sugar
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp corn starch (optional)
Blender or Food Processor
Mix sugar and corn starch together. In small amounts place in food processor or blender. On the highest speed blend for 1 minute. Check to see if sugar is still grainy. If grainy blend for 30 second intervals until the sugar is powdery. You may want to cover your food processor or blender while doing this to prevent the powder from going all over your kitchen cupboards.
Note: The corn starch in the powdered sugar acts as a binding agent and some recipes may need this but if you don’t like the taste of it you can leave it out.
I have not tried this with sugar substitutes but if you have and it works, let me know about it.
