Homemade Cajun Powder

This easy to make blend is the perfect mix of spices and herbs for adding traditional flavours and fab aromas to your homemade Cajun meals.

Makes about 10 tbsp

4 tbsp paprika powder
3 tbsp dried oregano
2 tbsp dried thyme
2 tbsp black peppercorns
2 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp mustard powder
1 tbsp onion powder
2-3 tsp brown sugar
4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
7-8 dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Crumble the bay leaves

  • Grind the bay pieces with the sugar, salt, cumin and peppercorns

  • Once ground, add to a bowl

  • Stir in the garlic, onion, cayenne pepper, paprika and mustard powders and combine thoroughly

  • Finally crumble in the dried oregano and thyme and combine again

That's all there is to it!

Store in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: You could dry toast the peppercorns and cumin seeds before grinding. This really brings out their flavours and aromas!

Note: Apologies for the lack of newsletters recently. I've been proof reading my Kindle spice mix book to death! A lot harder task than I thought. Anyway, it is done and uploaded to Amazon, and once I finish doing the description it'll be live. I'll send a newsletter once it is all done.

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
