Can I “whirl” regular granulated sugar in a food processor if a cake recipe calls for “extra-fine sugar” and I cannot locate it anywhere?  I am going to our local mega-grocery to look for it, but in case I cannot find this I want to have an option other than to drive around aimlessly…  wink

Absolutely.

The packages available at the store are rather small and relatively expensive.

Yes, I used to do this all the while, be careful not to whizz for too long though , or it will turn into powdered sugar!  Give little bursts of the motor,  it doesn’t take long.

Oh yes, this is very easy to do.  One word of caution I can give is to let the sugar dust “settle” for a minute or two before you remove the lid to your food processor.

great advice, I use my food processor and whirl until I start to see sugar dust.  Then I let is settle as Patrincia says, prior to opening!
