Have you ever wanted to bake something that required powdered sugar and then noticed you were all out of this pantry staple? Instead of making a trip to the store, you can easily make your own powdered sugar at home using just two ingredients and a blender or food processor! This is one of those genius baking tips/secrets that I did not discover until recently so I am excited to share it with you!
DIY Powdered Sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch* (optional but recommended)
Place granulated sugar and cornstarch in a food processor. Blend at a high speed for several minutes and watch it turn into a fine powder! Let it settle for a few seconds before you open lid to avoid a mess. That’s it! EASY PEASY!
Notes: I did try this without the cornstarch – it did turn out OK but adding a little cornstarch keeps it from sticking and gives it that super fine powdery texture. Although I have not personally tried it, rumor has it that you can use this same method with other types of granulated sugar and sweeteners such as coconut sugar.
