  • In a small bowl, whisk together granulated sugar and cinnamon. Store in an airtight container.


  1. Standard ratio: Use a 4-to-1 ratio (1 cup sugar to 1/4 cup cinnamon) for most recipes (donuts, churros, French toast, cookies, etc.).
  2. More cinnamon: For a stronger cinnamon flavor, use a 3-to-1 ratio (1 cup sugar to 1/3 cup cinnamon).
  3. Yield: One recipe makes 1 1/4 cups cinnamon sugar topping.
  4. Small batch: If you need just a small amount for sprinkling, use 1/4 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon cinnamon.
  5. Storage: Store in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid or a container with holes for sprinkling for at least a few months at room temperature.
  6. Perfect for: French toast, granola, muffins, cookies, cinnamon rolls, graham crackers, nuts, apple crisp, and pumpkin pie.
