Simple Cinnamon sugar.
One of my favourite spices is Cinnamon. Cinnamon is very versatile and I have used it many time in sweet and savoury dishes. Today is a quick note on how to make Cinnamon sugar.
I always keep a box of Cinnamon sugar in the cupboard as it can be used with almost anything. From cheeky coffee in the morning, home made custard or use it in a (Aggy’s) cake recipe.
Cinnamon is a spice which is ground from the inner barks of trees in the Cinnamomum genus. It comes in two forms, as a powder and rolled chunks of bark. It has a characteristic aromatic sweet flavour. Uniquely spicy in a woody type of way, with a strong, warm, pleasant aftertaste slightly similar to ginger.
How to make good Cinnamon sugar?
To make my Cinnamon sugar I use very fine sugar but you can use a coarser type.
The amounts are approximate and you can adjust to your personal taste.
You will need:
- 200g fine sugar, preferably caster
- 4 – 6 hipped tea spoons of powder cinnamon
Simply mix together. Store in a air tight box or a container. Use within a few months.
Perfect for rolling the Chimney cakes in.
