How To Make Powdered Sugar (Confectioner’s Sugar)

Whether you run out, or just need a cup or two, making confectioner’s sugar is a simple matter in the blender. This method can be used to make larger quantities, but it is a real time-saver for last-minute needs. Confectioner’s sugar is also known as “powdered sugar” and “icing sugar.”

Time Required: 15 minutes
What You Need:

  • Blender
  • Sugar
  • Measuring cup
  • Corn starch (optional)
  • Measuring spoon (optional)


Here’s How:

  1. For each cup of confectioner’s sugar: Add one cup of regular granulated sugar to the blender.
  2. Blend (pulse) until it turns to powder.

Tips:
A coffee grinder, spice grinder or small mini-processor works as well, for small amounts.
The sugar crystals can scratch plastic, so consider carefully before making in a plastic blender or processor.
Corn starch or other additives are used in commercial products, and if you’re getting a taste that doesn’t match what you need, try adding 1 to 1 1/4 tablespoons of corn starch for each cup of sugar.
This method works best in small quantities – 1-2 cups at a time.
