Apple Spice Mix - Perfect For All
Your Pies Puddings and Desserts

This easy to make apple spice is the perfect blend of ingredients for adding superb flavours and mouthwatering aromas to, not just apple pie, but all your fruit pies, desserts, pastries and puddings. Using a tasty blend of warming spices: coriander, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger and allspice, it's probably my most used dessert flavouring. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

Ingredients: (makes 4-5 tablespoons)

2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp caraway seeds (optional)
4 tsp allspice berries
2 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp whole cloves
1 tsp nutmeg powder
3 inch piece cinnamon stick

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Break up the cinnamon stick
  • Finely grind the cinnamon pieces along with the cloves, coriander, caraway seeds (if using) and allspice berries
  • Once ground, sieve into a bowl
  • Finally, stir in the ginger and nutmeg powders

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

Note: You can dry toast the coriander seeds, cloves and allspice berries before grinding and combining. The heat from the toasting releases even more flavours and aromas. Click here for photos and further info on toasting and grinding ingredients. (Link opens in new window)

Ingredient Note:
I recommend using some whole ingredients for this recipe as these will add the best flavours. If you don't have them whole simply use their pre-ground version and reduce the amount the recipe requires by half. For example, for 2 tablespoons of coriander seeds you would use 1 tablespoon of ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
