Why buy Pumpkin Pie Spice when you can make your own

It’s a quick post for you today but one I feel the timing is right for. It’s the fall and we all know what that means. Pumpkin everything!! But seriously, I do enjoy various pumpkin-flavoured bakes during this time of the year. Most recipes I use call for individual spices but occasionally, the recipe wants “pumpkin pie spice”.

I don’t buy pumpkin pie spice since I don’t use it that often and I’ve learned over the years that spices lose their potency after a while. So, if I find a recipe that needs pumpkin pie spice, I just make a batch up.

Feel free to double or triple these measurements if you require more.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon

  • 1 Tsp Ground Ginger

  • 1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg

  • 1/2 Tsp + 1/4 Tsp Ground All Spice

  • 1/2 Tsp + 1/4 Tsp Ground Cloves

Add all the spices together in a jar. Place the lid on and shake away. Make sure you use an airtight container. It helps keep your spices fresh longer.

If you want a double batch, here are the measurements:

  • 3 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 2 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Ground All Spice
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Ground Cloves

You can use this to flavour any of your fall pumpkin baking such as muffins, cakes, cookies or scones. I have also used this mixture in smoothies and hot chocolate drinks.
