Is there any substitute to molasses?
I am not sure what the recipe's author would suggest, but I would replace the 1/4 cup molasses with 3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar (packed) and 1-2 tsp. water and 1 tsp lemon juice or neutral flavor vinegar (because molasses is more acidic than sugar).
I would mix those together in a small cup, adding the water last. I would try to get a very thick consistency and not too runny. Please know I haven't done this before specifically but my suggestion is based on general food substitution recommendations.
Dark corn syrup would work, although the flavor will be much less pronounced.
Sorghum is much milder than molasses, and I always use it in place of molasses. But if you don't have sorghum, I agree with the dark corn syrup, or what about honey?

Here's a useful site: http://www.foodsubs.com... . Read the entry for molasses all the way to the end. You can use brown sugar, following the suggested ratio. ;o)
