Like most I went to my pantry to grab a bag of powdered sugar only to find I had none, nooo what do I do now? I really don't feel like a trip to the store for a cup of powdered sugar and did not want to bother my neighbor. so in desperation not knowing if it would work or not I threw some regular sugar in my grinder and presto I had powdered sugar. which then led me on the journey to figure out what the difference was, cornstarch and nothing else well Ill be I cant count the number of times I had to run to the store for no reason at all.

How to Make How to Make Powdered Sugar

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour granulated sugar into a blender or food processor, Use the “pulse” or “blend” setting, blend the sugar until it is a fine, about 30 seconds whiter sugars make the fluffiest powdered sugars.
  2. you can also use brown sugar, but healthier options will be coconut sugar and turbinado sugar use approximately half as much granulated sugar as you need powdered sugar, but the best results will be with cane sugar, turbinado sugar and coconut sugar
  3. Commercial confectioners’ sugar typically contains cornstarch, which prevents caking and clumping. If you are using the confectioners’ sugar right away, it’s not necessary to add cornstarch. However, if you plan on storing the sugar, add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to the sugar before blending to ensure that it has a consistency that will keep well in an airtight container.
