Superfine Sugar – Caster Sugar Substitute
- White granulated sugar
- Food Processor or Blender
Place sugar into a food processor or blender. Process on high for 1-2 minutes, depending on how much sugar you have. I will be difficult to grind only a few tablespoons. I would suggest grinding at least ½ cup and store whatever you don’t use. For one cup, I usually process for about one minute. Do not open the lid immediately after done processing, as the sugar dusts up a bit and may come up into your eyes, nose and mouth. Depending on your blender or processor and the amount of sugar added, you may need to cover it with a towel to prevent sugar dust from seeping out, so have one ready just in case. When the dust has settled, remove the sugar and measure for your recipe.
Note: If you measure the sugar before processing, you will need a bit more, as the sugar crystals will be ground down into smaller bits and take up less space in the measuring cup. If I need one cup of superfine sugar, I measure 1 ¼ cups to be sure I have enough. See video. You can grind larger amounts and keep stored in an airtight container for future use, as you would regular granulated sugar.
