How to Soften Brown Sugar Quickly

If you've ever found yourself in the midst of baking and realize your brown sugar is hard, use this tip to keep the baking alive.

To soften hard brown sugar, place open bag of sugar in microwave with a cup of water next to it. Microwave on high (100%) for 2–3 minutes. If your microwave doesn’t have a carousel, turn bag after each minute. This isn’t a permanent fix, but can be repeated each time you need sugar.
