Dark Brown Sugar

Yield :
6-8 servings



*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Pour water in a large bowl, whisk in baking soda. Add molasses, brown sugar, salt, egg and vanilla extract and whisk vigorously.
  3. Pour mixture into pie shell and set aside.
  4. Combine flour and brown sugar. Using a box grater, grate the butter (as you would grate cheese) on the small eyes of the grater. Add salt and rub mixture between your hands to ensure that butter is in small pieces.
  5. Sprinkle mixture onto very liquid molasses filling.
  6. Place in oven. After 15 minutes reduce heat to 350°F and bake another 30 minutes or until the center of the pie has set.
  7. Serve pie lukewarm or cooled with crème Chantilly.
