What is Pumpkin Spice?

..and how do I make it?  If you’re outside of the US that’s probably what you want to know.  Because like pumpkin pie filling, it’s just not something that’s available everywhere.

The truth is Pumpkin Spice Mix or Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix is not dissimilar to what we would call Mixed Spice.  The proportions are a little different and it’s this which gives pumpkin spice, it’s unique warming flavour.

You Will Need

Ground cinnamon

Ground ginger

Ground nutmeg

Ground cloves


Essentially you’re just going to mix the whole lot together, but it’s he amounts that matter.

Ground cinnamon x4

Ground ginger x2

Ground nutmeg x2

Ground cloves x1

Add the spices to a bowl in these proportions, mix and store in an airtight container.   Now you have the perfect pumpkin spice mix to add to baking and sweets, or sprinkle onto hot chocolate, porridge, lattes or even ice cream.
