This is an Instructable on how to make cinnamon sugar...

You can use cinnamon sugar on buttered toast or topping for quick breads, cobblers, muffins, coffee cakes, oatmeal, applesauce or just about any dessert or breakfast bread.

Step 1: Ratio

Picture of Ratio


Typical proportions of sugar to cinnamon range from 3:1 to 16:1. 

1/4 cup granulated sugar to 3-4 teaspoons ground cinnamon. (4:1 to 3:1)
1/4 cup granulated sugar mixed with 2-3 teaspoon ground cinnamon. (6:1 to 4:1)
1/2 cup granulated sugar to 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon. (8:1)
1/2 cup granulated sugar to 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. (12:1)
1/2 cup granulated sugar to 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (16:1)

Note: I find that my favorite ratio is (16:1) but included the others for you to decide.

I mixed at 4:1, then added a few sliced strips of vanilla to the jar.

Sorry about that. The measurements where on the pictures I just added to the text on the page, hope it helps. Thanks for telling me.
You would think that reading the text and not the picture was a given :)
I use:
1 TBLS sugar to 1 TSP of cinnamon
cinnamon toast was a staple growing up :0)
