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.

Step 2: Mixing ingredients

I find this step to be the most troubling, It never ceases to amaze me how well the two substances mix... they must have been meant for each other.

I suggest getting a container that has a lid and mixing by shaking, if you are totally clueless to what I just said then look at the pictures...

Step 3: Enjoying

Nom Nom, congratulations you made cinnamon sugar...  that is if you were successful other wise you may have created a hazardous bi-product of sugar and unidentified materials.  If you have indeed created a disaster I suggest disposing of it and starting over. 

All feed back is welcome, thanks.

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

Measurements of both would make this a lot better/more useful.

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)
