The perfect ratio for sweet and spicy cinnamon sugar.
Hey, friends, I have a quick and simple, sweet and spicy recipe for you today: Cinnamon Sugar.
Whether you’re looking to make up a big batch to keep in your spice drawer (would recommend!) or need just enough to sprinkle over your cereal, this recipe has you covered, and it’ s a handy little no-recipe recipe to have in your back pocket.
The Best Cinnamon Sugar Ratio
The perfect cinnamon to sugar ratio is 1:4. With this ratio, you get cinnamon sugar with the ideal level of spiciness that’s going to have a distinct cinnamon flavor but not overwhelm whatever you’re using it on/in.
Depending on how much cinnamon sugar you want to make, that looks like:
1/4 cup cinnamon to 1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon to 1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon to 1 tablespoon sugar
