Apple Pie Spice Recipe - Fab Flavours For
All Your Puddings, Pies and Desserts

Although this is an apple pie spice recipe, it works well with all your favourite kinds of desserts! In addition to homemade apple pie of course, it'll add tons of flavour and mouthwatering aromas to numerous puddings, pastries, cakes and cookies. And using a simple blend of whole and ground ingredients, in can be made in just minutes! (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 6-7 tablespoons)

3 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp allspice berries
1 tbsp ground ginger
4 tsp broken-up mace blades (optional)
2 tsp nutmeg powder
1 tsp whole cloves
3 inch piece cinnamon stick

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon stick
  • Grind these cinnamon pieces along with the coriander, allspice, cloves, and if using, the mace blades
  • Sieve into a bowl
  • Finally, add the ginger and nutmeg powders and combine thoroughly

Store your apple pie spice recipe in an airtight jar, in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making a fresh lot.

Note: You can dry toast the coriander, cloves and berries prior to grinding. This will add even more flavours and aromas to the finished blend.

Ingredient Note: For the best flavours, I recommend using a few whole ingredients when making this recipe. However, if you don't have whole available you can simply use pre-ground powders and reduce the amounts the recipe requires by half. For example, for 2 tablespoons of whole allspice berries you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground allspice. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.

Why You Should Make Your Own Apple Pie Spice Recipe

If you were to purchase this from the store you'd more than likely find it sold as mixed spice.

Whilst buying some is obviously convenient, with its many uses I recommend you make your own. 
It only takes minutes!

And as you have complete control of the quantities and ingredients, making it yourself will ensure your homemade desserts will taste deliciously unique!
