I’m working on a cinnamon toast crunch recipe and need a little help. It’s not there yet, and one thing it can use is a bakery/grain boost. I’m not sure whether to try Cookie or Yellow Cake (if either of them). I already have 0.15 AP in the recipe. The cinnamon/sugar is coming from CAP Sugar Cookie and CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl (swirl needs to come down a little). If anyone has some suggestions that would be awesome. Thanks. The recipe is here:
If the recipe looks bad to the point it’s laughable, I’m just starting to learn how flavors interact.
Have you looked at what other’s have done to achieve that flavor profile?
Here’s a list of some recipes you might get some inspiration from:

Thanks Alisa. I saw one that is using Biscuit. Do you think that might go better than AP with a cereal vape? From what I understand, Biscuit has some AP in it already.
It might work well for you, but it does have a ‘buttery’ base to it IMHO.
I think I would do something very different if I were trying to make
this particular recipe. I would try using something like FW’s Capt
Crunch Type in the base of this mix.
Interesting. The closest flavors I have to that are TPA Captain Cereal, which I haven’t used in a long time, and TPA Berry Crunch, which I’m thinking might take it too far off course. That was kind of a pun I just realized.
Flavorahs cinnatoast crunch is really good it has a very light cinnamon some sugar taste and even develops a milky note after a steep. I suggest this:
Flah cinnamon toast crunch 4.5%
Tfa dairy milk 3%
Fa cream 1%
Fa cookie .5%
Fa meringue .15%
NF brown sugar .15%
This will do it
Sounds like a winner. I always have good luck with dairy milk, fa cream, and fa meringue together, so ill give it a shot.
INW biscuit is a good light biscuity taste that could work?
Also I would look to maybe FW Rice Crispies for that taste/ feel you are after?
Could you sub tfa brown sugar?
Could work its more for added nuance to give it a bottom of the bowl milk effect. I have TPA but prefer Natures Flavors. You can also try TPA frosted donut for added grain at 1%
Wow… so many delicious sounding ideas here. Just ordered some FLV Cinn Toast. I have TPA
Frosted Donut but haven’t really used it. I’ll look into it. Also picked up FLV Vanilla Custard and FLV Crunch Cereal. I have a feeling if any juice is gonna help me pick up chicks it’s gonna be this one.
So I got the FLV cinnamon crunch today and am gonna try your recipe tomorrow. I have TPA brown sugar extra. What % would you recommend using? I’m looking at the flavor list and the NF seems so concentrated I can’t figure out what the TPA equivalent would be. Thanks for your help.
Well now that I looked again I’m gonna say 1%… that sound about right?
I would keep the tfa browm sugar low 1% or less sounds right. Hope it works for you
So I made the recipe you suggested yesterday. Just tested it a few minutes ago, and man it has a really good flavor. No joke that FLV Cinnamon Crunch is delicious. Only problem is the overall flavor is a little weak for my taste. If I were to bump up the toast, what would you recommend? Is 0.5% going to make that much of a difference or should I just go for 1% to 2.5%?
I should add what I’m going for is a fairly intense, in your face overall flavor.
