Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix

This homemade blend is super easy to make. It's very versatile and will add fab flavours and gorgeous aromas to your homemade pumpkin pies plus numerous puddings and desserts.

Makes about 5 tbsp

2 x 3 inch pieces cinnamon
4 tsp ginger powder
2 tsp whole cloves
2 tsp nutmeg powder

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon into smallish pieces

  • Grind the cinnamon pieces along with the cloves

  • Sieve into a bowl

  • Finally, add the ginger and nutmeg powders. Combine thoroughly

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 cloves before grinding. This really brings out their flavours and aromas!

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.
