Cinnamon Sugar Mix

August 24th, 2009 by katie

I keep a large jar of cinnamon sugar in the pantry.  It is nice to have on hand for sprinkling on toast, hot chocolate, popcorn, or pita chips, or for making s’more-dillas, cinnamon rolls, or mixing into whipped butter.  Here is the ratio we use:

Cinnamon Sugar Mix

makes 2 2/3 cups
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg, or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  1. Combine in jar with a lid.  Mix well.

I suggest buying your cinnamon in bulk if you can.  It will save you quite a bit and this amount lasts a long time in the pantry.

If you only want to mix up a few servings the ratio is 4 tsp cinnamon for every 1/4 cup sugar.

    I have a container of this in my cabinet too for exactly the same reasons. Glad you’re back; hope you enjoyed your break.

    Love that you put salt in this. I’ve been putting salt on everything sweet these days (esp. sprinkling it over chocolate chip cookies). Maybe I’ll toss a pinch of cayenne in there, too, just for, well, kicks. That should help wake my kids up in the mornings…

    I always have a container of this on the go too, but it’s nice to know some proportions. Thanks!

    This is so smart! The Kiddo loves the little containers of cinnamon sugar at the grocery store but holy moly is it expensive that way. Mama’s got some refilling to do!

    When I made your peach cobbler I had about half a cup of sugar leftover that had been flavoured with cinnamon and nutmeg. I keep wandering past the pantry and smelling it, now I know what to do with it!

    This is a great mix to have on hand. I have added ginger but never nutmeg, will have to try that. I love the s’moredillas idea!!

    I keep this on hand too!! We use it for tons of stuff!

    Why don’t you just say 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp instead of 4 tsp to 1/4 cup?

    OMG…I have been eating cinnamon sugar since I was a kid; glad to hear members are able to incorporate it into the diets as a treat!

Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way.
