Cinnamon sugar is a mixture of ground cinnamon and granulated sugar used as a spice for desserts. While premixed versions are available commercially, it is simple to prepare at home, and more economical.

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar to 2-4 teaspoons ground cinnamon. (6:1 to 3:1)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar to 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon. (8:1)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar to 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. (8:1)
