Substitution question

If a recipe calls for 1 cup packed brown sugar, what would be the equivalent sweetener?

TIA

Whatever you use that equals 1 C. sugar. 1 C. packed brown sugar equals 1 cup white sugar.

If you're looking for the same flavor, you'd use 1 c. Splenda (or equivalent sweetner of your choice), plus 1/2 - 1 tsp. blackstrap molasses.

For 1 cup packed, I believe the equivalent is 1 1/4 cups loose measure.

I had always been taught that 1C. sugar = 1 C. packed brown sugar so I had to go looking for the answer.

At: http://www.joyofbaking.com/sugar.html

I found this:

"The same weight of brown and white sugars has the same sweetness. Because white sugar is denser than brown sugar, to get equal sweetness firmly pack the brown sugar so when inverted the cup of brown sugar will hold its shape."
