Brown sugar is a sucrose sugar product with a distinctive brown color due to the presence of molasses. It is either an unrefined or partially refined soft sugar consisting of sugar crystals with some residual molasses content, or it is produced by the addition of molasses to refined white sugar.
Brown sugar contains from 3.5% molasses (light brown sugar)
to 6.5% molasses (dark brown sugar).
Brown sugar has a slightly lower caloric value by weight than white sugar due to the presence of water. One hundred grams of brown sugar contains 373 calories, as opposed to 396 calories in white sugar.
However, brown sugar packs more densely than white sugar due to the smaller crystal size and may have more calories when measured by volume. One tablespoon of brown sugar has 48 calories against 45 calories for white sugar.

Made these biscuits as well yesterday, we had some buttermilk and fresh dills on hand. Instead of Swiss cheese, I used mozzarella, and I simmered minced garlic in the olive oil under a low temperature, which really infused the garlic flavor into oil, and made the biscuits taste amazingly delicious; for each biscuit I used about 1/3 cup of batter, rolling the batter into a rustic ball, setting down on the baking sheet and pressing down a little bit, and I only used 1/2 cup of buttermilk, because the dough was getting too sticky if use 3/4 cup. And these biscuits were too delicious to keep longer. We already ate them all.
