Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice

Sometimes, we don’t have certain spices in our spice rack.  Most of us have the basic spices for everyday baking.  I found myself in this predicament when I attempted to bake a Carrot Cake recipe that used Pumpkin Spice in the recipe.  Here is the recipe to make your own Pumpkin Spice:

  • 1/4 Cup Cinnamon
  • 4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 4 tsp Ginger
  • 1 Tbsp Allspice

Put all spices in a zip lock bag and shake until combined.  Use as the pumpkin spice in your recipe.  Label the bag ‘Pumpkin Spice’ and store with your other spices.
