Making cinnamon sugar is incredibly easy and requires only two ingredients: cinnamon and granulated sugar. Here’s a simple recipe:


  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. The ratio is typically 1 part ground cinnamon to 4 parts granulated sugar, but you can adjust the proportions to suit your taste preferences.

  2. Mix Thoroughly: Use a fork or whisk to thoroughly mix the cinnamon and sugar together until well combined. Make sure there are no clumps of cinnamon and that the mixture is evenly distributed.

  3. Store: Transfer the cinnamon sugar mixture to an airtight container or small jar for storage. It will keep for several months if stored in a cool, dry place away from heat and moisture.

That’s it! Your homemade cinnamon sugar is ready to use. Sprinkle it over toast, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, or any other baked goods for a deliciously sweet and aromatic touch. You can also use it to top muffins, cookies, or even to rim the glass of a cocktail for a flavorful twist. Enjoy!
