Small Quantity

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 5 teaspoons granulated sugar

Large Quantity

  • 24 grams (3 tablespoons) ground cinnamon
  • 210 grams (1 cup) granulated sugar


  • Place the sugar and cinnamon into a bowl or into a container you’ll use. Mix with a fork or a small whisk.  If you are mixing in a small jar, make sure to stir from the sides so there won’t be any unmixed part.
  • Keep in an airtight container at room temperature in a cool, dark place. Take a note of the expiration date of the ingredients so you’ll know when your cinnamon sugar will expire.   


  • If you are not using any cinnamon in a recipe other than cinnamon sugar, I don’t suggest lowering the cinnamon ratio so you can feel the cinnamon properly. 
  • If you are making muffins, donuts or other desserts and you already have cinnamon in the dough, you can change the ratio while covering them with cinnamon sugar to 1:8 or more depending on how much cinnamon you are using in the batter.  You should take my ratio as a base and increase/decrease as you like depending on the situation.
