Top Tips
  • After doing a search I found that the popular ratio for cinnamon sugar was 4:1, using granulated sugar (white or brown) to ground cinnamon.  This balances out the sweetness of the sugar to the cinnamon spice.
  • Use cinnamon sugar in a variety of foods including cinnamon toast, cinnamon rolls, coffee cake, apple cake or even in porridge.
  • You can use any of the following ratios in your recipes, you do not have to use my preferred ratio;
  1. 1/4 cup sugar to 2-4 teaspoons ground cinnamon giving a 3:1 or 6:1 ratio.
  2. 1/2 cup sugar to 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon giving an 8:1 ratio, or
  3. 2 tablespoons sugar to 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon giving an 8:1 ratio
  4. 1 tablespoon sugar to 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon giving a 12;1 ratio
