My homemade Pumpkin Spice is the perfect blend of spices for all your fall baking. Ready in five minutes and made with 5 ingredients.
Whenever I get the opportunity to create my own spice mix I take it. I feel like a mad scientist conjuring up a secret formula. My Pumpkin Spice is made with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. Freshly grated nutmeg delivers the best flavor, but ground nutmeg works too as long as it’s fresh.
This may sound obvious, but because I have made this mistake, I don’t want you to make the same one. Check the date on your spices. If they’ve been sitting in your cabinet for a while, they’ll have absolutely no flavor and they’ll taste like chalk.
I created this Pumpkin Spice to use with my Pumpkin Spice Granola, Pumpkin Pie, Homemade Pumpkin Spice Creamer, Pumpkin Spice Granola, and Pumpkin Bread. Try adding a teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice mixed in with your coffee grounds before brewing to create a great flavored coffee.
This recipe makes about 1/4 cup of Pumpkin Spice. Keep it in an airtight container or reuse a clean spice container, label it, and have it ready whenever you need it. Use it to add flavor to all your fall baking. Make your own, it’s infinitely better!
