Confectioners Sugar



Make Your Own:  Confectioners Sugar

A/K/A DIY Confectioners Sugar


Have you ever been in mid-recipe and run out of an ingredient?

I have, and one of those items is Confectioners Sugar.


Known especially for dessert frostings and glazes, confectioners sugar contains only 2 ingredients: sugar and cornstarch. You can use either a blender or coffee grinder. Since my blender isn’t the best, I prefer the coffee grinder.



In a large bowl, mix together:

2 cups Sugar

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch


If you’re using a blender, be sure to pause and stir, so it gets thoroughly blended. Once it is blended into a fine powder, store it in an airtight container.


If you’re using a coffee grinder, scoop appropriate portions into your grinder at a time. The mixture will be light, fluffy, and—thanks to the cornstarch—it will remain dry.


You’ve done it!
