Cinnamon sugar is probably one of the easiest ingredient to make at home. It’s no wonder I don’t bother buying it in store. It is a very simple recipe and is used to garnish sweet and savory snacks alike.
Cinnamon Sugar is made from 2 readily available ingredients. And if you are like me, you probably have those 2 ingredients in your pantry right here, right now.
And what are the pantry staples in question here? – Granulated Sugar and Cinnamon. Cinnamon is a very unique spice which I love so much. It is extracted from the inner bark of certain trees from the genus cinnamomum.
It tastes amazing when sprinkled on some Nigerian snacks like doughnuts, puff puff, buns, and even Chin chin
Cinnamon sugar is available commercially but I love to making things from scratch if I can help it. Like my homemade Brown sugar. Besides this is easy to make and less expensive. So why not???
If you are on a low carb/ sugar free diet not to worry you can substitute the sugar in this recipe with any sugar substitute like erythritol or stevia
Now here are some of the things you can use this cool sugar to do.
Add some flavor to your hot African corn pudding aka pap
Sprinkle it on the perfect oatmeal porridge
Cinnamon simply make any dish worth digging into so let me show you how to make this sugar already ?

Prep Time: 3 mins Yield: ½ cup
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- ½ – 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon.**
** I use 1 Tbsp. You can use more or less. I think a good range would be ½ – 1½ Tbsp. For me, the maximum quantity for Cinnamon in this recipe should be 1½ Tbsp otherwise the Cinnamon flavor will be overpowering. But it really depends on your taste. Feel free to experiment.
- Measure out the ingredients into a clean bowl
- Mix thoroughly until evenly blended.
- Use the desired immediately and store the ret in an airtight container. I stored mine in an old cinnamon spice container.
See? Easy Peasy. So the next time a recipe calls for cinnamon sugar go with confidence. ?
Note: If you are on a sugar free diet. Substitute the sugar with Erythritol ?
