Easy homemade pumpkin spice mix – for all the pumpkin spice inspired recipes this season!
Oh yes, it’s that time of the year: pumpkin spice everything is popping up literally everywhere. And yes, my blog is not an exclusion cause I too love me a good pumpkin spice everything – so today I’m showing you my homemade pumpkin spice mix recipe!
For years I have seen all these wonderful pumpkin spiced recipes online, wondering ‘where did they all get the pumpkin spice from?’ and I’ve actually had a couple of desperate trips to the store & coming back empty-handed. I simply have to face: it’s not widely available in the UK! (maybe a gap in the market?) So: I simply have to make my own – which, as I found, is actually super easy and only requires a few simple ingredients from the spice rack.
What you need for this spice mix
- ground cinnamon
- ground ginger
- ground all-spice (optional)
- ground cloves
- ground nutmeg
It’s best if you have all the ingredients to hand in a dried and ground form, however, if you’re missing one of the powders, simply grind them in a spice grinder or with a pestle and mortar. Run the powder through a fine sieve afterwards to filter out any larger bits.
- measuring spoons
