Is there a difference in taste between white and brown sugar?

I'm going to try a recipe that calls for brown sugar but I only have white; is it just a color thing or do they taste different?

  • They do taste different. I am not sure if you can exchange one for the other, sorry!

  • Ok, then I won't try it, I'll just do without either. Thanks!

  • If you have molasses, then you can make your own "brown sugar."

  • yes. Brown sugar is granulated sugar with molasses. The darker- the sweeter.

  • Brown sugar has molasses in it and it tastes different than regular sugar and has a different texture. I don't think you can substitute one for the other.
