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
Easily make your own powdered sugar at home using just two ingredients and a blender or food processor!
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch* (optional but recommended)
That’s it! EASY PEASY!
Note: 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.
