Preparing Cinnamon Sugar

Before you can learn how to make this mixture, you should know that the ratio is of the essence when it comes to making the perfect blend.

If you want your cinnamon sugar to have a satisfyingly sweet taste with a strong but not overwhelming presence of cinnamon, we suggest mixing four tablespoons of cinnamon with 1 cup of granulated cane sugar. Starting with a 1 to 4 ratio will give you a great beginning point if you’re not too sure the taste you are looking for.

The Recipe

Making homemade cinnamon sugar is incredibly easy. The perfect ratio is 1:4…..Here’s everything you need:

Tablespoon Size:

  • 3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (or other sugar of your choice)

Small Bath:

  • 4 tablespoon of ground cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar (or other sugar of your choice)

Larger Batch:

  • 1/2 cup of ground cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 2 cups of granulated sugar (or other sugar of your choice)

Gift Size Batch:

  • 1 cup of ground cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 4 cups of granulated sugar (or other sugar of your choice)

Instructions

  • Take a small bowl of your choice and add ground cinnamon and granulated sugar.
  • Use a whisk or a spoon to blend the ingredients thoroughly.
  • Once both ingredients have been combined, pour the mixture into a small container like a sugar shaker with a pour sprout, a canning jar with a screw top or a zip-loc food storage bag.
  • Store it in a dry place in your pantry and enjoy it whenever and however you want!

Note: You can increase the amount of cinnamon if you wish to have a higher ratio of cinnamon to sugar.

Type of Sugar You can Use

Cinnamon sugar is typically made with granulated, but make sure to also try turbinado or sucanat both of which offer some nutritional value. But, if you’ve run out of granulated, you can consider using brown sugar as an alternative.

Ways to Use Cinnamon Sugar

If you want your breakfast cereal to be even more appetizing, feel free to add some cinnamon sugar into the mix to enhance the flavor. You can sprinkle it over a pie crust just before popping it into the oven or dust it over whipped cream or eggnog.

If you’re pressed for time, you can also add a generous coating of cinnamon sugar on buttered toast to start your mornings on a happy note!

How Long Does Cinnamon Sugar Last?

Cinnamon sugar can last for up to two or more years if it’s stored in an air-tight container. Sugar doesn’t really get spoiled as long as it’s stored in a dry place, but it can develop a stale flavor after two years.

Cinnamon can also lose its characteristic spiciness over time. But, with all the delightfully delicious ways to use this sweet treat….I doubt it will sit around for very long ♥
