Amish Cinnamon Sauce




The other morning my dear family was cravings pancakes.  I've gotten on this anti-Bisquick kick, so I took out one of my Amish cookbooks, one like we just had a giveaway for, to see if there was a good sounding recipe for pancakes in it.  

First let me say that there was, it was called Johnny Cakes and included a bit of cornmeal in it.  Second, to my delight, there was a delicious sounding recipe for Cinnamon Sauce.  My family really likes Cinnamon, so I read it over and thought I'd try it to have as an option to our Maple Syrup.  

It is DELICIOUS!!  

Not only that, but you could use it on more than just pancakes.  It could be used on ice cream, french toast, over sweet bread, the sky's the limit because it can be made just a bit thicker to be used as a frosting on cakes too.  Ok, here's the recipe:

Amish Cinnamon Sauce

1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tablespoons flour (scant)
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 c. boiling water
4 Tablespoons butter
1 tsp. cinnamon

Blend first 3 ingredients in a saucepan.  Stir boiling water in gradually to keep smooth.  Cook until clear for 4 to 5 minutes.  Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon.  Serve!  YUM!

That's it, that's all there is to it!  This recipe makes about 2/3's of a Mason quart jar full.

    1. I'm glad you like it! I read your post and laughed when I saw that your husband said the same thing mine did. I've been enjoying making all of our own salad dressings lately so this fits right in at a different level.

  7. I don't know if I'm going to benefit from this recipe or not. It sounds absolutely delicious. Only problem is I have an insatiable appetite for cinnamon sweets. I'm afraid if I make it, I won't stop eating it. ;-)

    Then again, it might stop my impulse buys at the bakery. Lol.

  13. Wow...this was so yummy! I found your site on Pinterest. I made it for breakfast over our pancakes and the kids loved it saying it taste like that Amish bread you've made. I told them that was funny because this is called Amish cinnamon sauce. Well done. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
