Cinnamon sugar recipe (Quick and easy)

Cinnamon sugar recipe (Quick and easy)

We love to make cinnamon sugar and keep it on hand for all types of recipes such as cinnamon toast. Sometimes I even use it in my homemade lattes. So in this article, you will learn the perfect cinnamon sugar ratio. 

The reason that we have created this recipe is that there is a perfect cinnamon sugar ratio. Of course, different people will have different thoughts on this but we also have strong thoughts. 

We believe that the perfect cinnamon sugar ratio is a variation of this:

    1. Tablespoon of cinnamon to ½ cup of sugar
    2. Tablespoons of cinnamon to 1 cup of sugar

Put your cinnamon sugar in a glass container and seal it tight. Then store it in a cool dry place such as your pantry. We love to use small mason jars for this but you can also buy reusable spice jars.

How long will cinnamon sugar last?

Cinnamon sugar will last up to a year in the pantry if it is stored properly. The secret to keeping cinnamon sugar good is to keep it dry.
