How to make cinnamon sugar
I saw a spice at the local grocery store for Cinnamon & Sugar and I thought… “people don’t know how to make cinnamon sugar recipe?”
It seems like a DUH moment… because I thought everyone made their own mixture, but it dawned on me that some people may not even know how.
Making your own will save you money. You can buy a container of cinnamon for only $1.
That same bottle will last you a VERY long time. Plus if you get sugar on sale, your new spice is even cheaper.
You can double or even triple the recipe depending on what your needs are. It really is such an easy recipe.
Is cinnamon sugar the same as cinnamon?
No this is a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. It is different than just cinnamon.
What is the best Cinnamon Sugar Ratio?
The ingredients are so very simple to make a perfect cinnamon sugar mix. This is the ratio I use and it’s delicious every time. Yes, I do think the ratio does matter for the best cinnamon sugar mixture.
- ½ cup of Granulated Sugar – You can use brown sugar as well.
- 1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon
That is the perfect ratio. 1 part sugar to 8 parts cinnamon. This does might a mild cinnamon flavor. If you like a strong cinnamon flavor, I recommend mixing 1 part cinnamon to 4 parts sugar.
Add the ½ cup sugar and cinnamon to a bowl and mix them all together. Then pour the mixture into an old spice container or use a mason jar to store it.
It is really that easy. Now use your new mixture for any recipe you may have. Keep reading to jump to recipe below.

First you butter a piece of bread and top it with butter. Place the buttered toast on a baking sheet.
Then take your cinnamon sugar mixture and sprinkle it over the top of the toast. Generally ¼ cup of this cinnamon sugar mixture will make 4 pieces of cinnamon sugar toast.
Broil until crisp. This is super quick and only takes about 2 minutes.
