Love pumpkin pie spice and want to make your own? Try this easy pumpkin pie spice recipe.
Around this time of year, the American side of the internet goes absolutely wild for pumpkin pie spice flavoured anything. And I think that excitement spills over in the UK a little bit because of a certain coffee retailer.
The thing is, pumpkin pie spice isn’t readily available in the UK. And what’s more, I try really hard to avoid coffee chains that participate in tax avoidance schemes, such as Starbucks. I was therefore feeling a bit left out of the pumpkin party, so I had a go at making my own pumpkin pie spice recipe. It turned out so good that I had to share my spice mix with you today!
Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe
- 3 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon
- 2.5 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
- 2 Teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
- 1.5 Teaspoons Ground All Spice
- 1 Teaspoons Ground Cloves
Measure out your ground spices.
Mix them together.
Store in an airtight jar
Voila – home pumpkin pie spice!.
Yup, it really is that simple! And if you want to make more or less just scale up or down the recipe to suit.
If you’re looking for ideas on how to use your pumpkin pie spice mix I’d recommend sprinkling a little of your spice mix over hot chocolates or coffees as a good start! Alternatively add to chocolate chip cookies, cakes, pies, pancakes, rice puddings, or muffins for a sweet and warming treat, with an autumnal flavour.
The spice mix tastes pretty amazing sprinkled over roasted vegetables, or on roasted butternut squash seeds (or even pumpkin seeds!). For breakfast try stirring a spoon into your porridge. Perhaps this porridge recipe in particular. The list is endless!
Placed in a pretty jar, the pumpkin pie spice mix would also make for a lovely gift for the keen baker.
There are so many ways to use this mix, that I can see just why so many Americans get their knickers in a twist over it!
