Cinnamon Sugar Mix for Cinnamon Toast

Total Time

I like to keep a cinnamon sugar mix in a shaker glass for when my kids make cinnamon toast. That led into a discussion of my mix not having the right proportions of ingredients. So we decided to settle our disagreement through a science fair approach. After numerous taste tests of friends and family (we cut buttered toast into 9 squares and sampled different mixes); it was decided that this was the perfect mix. It seems adding the nutmeg brings out the flavor of the cinnamon and sugar. We considered furthering the experiment with other ingredients like cloves, etc., but the taste testers got tired of being called over. We used up 2 pounds of sugar and got tired ourselves, so we ended it here. Some of the taste testers claimed that regular margarine had too heavy of a flavor and hid the cinnamon sugar flavor. Light margarine worked better for them. We used bargain brand ingredients so if expensive brands have more flavor, you might have to adjust the measurements.


  1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a shaker glass. Sprinkle on buttered toast as desired.

This is a great recipe, not too sweet not one of the spices overpowering the other. The best I ever had. Thank-you, Kickapoo
