Hi first of all I'm fairly new to cooking and baking and recently purchased a bag of Ceylon Cinnamon for the first time. I've never really had cinnamon in my kitchen cause I never really spend any time in my kitchen other than baking an egg.
So this was the first time that I smelled (Ceylon) Cinnamon and I was immediately confused. I thought that I would smell those Aunty Anne's cinnamon rolls but instead the smell was nothing like that and more like spicy and hot? The bag is new and far from expiration. So, I asked my mom and she told me that the smell is "normal".
So after that I used 1 tsp in my oatmeal milkshake but it didn't taste like cinnamon at all??? It gave my shake a somewhat spicy and hot flavor instead of that delicious cinnamon flavor from the mall pretzels and buns.
I'm really confused. Can anyone please tell me if this smell and flavor is normal....?
