How to Make Pumpkin Pie Spice Recipe
The main and major ingredient for pumpkin pie spice is obviously cinnamon. It is sweet, spicy and warm, and embodies all of Fall’s flavor. The other spices necessary for the mix are ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Now that you have the ingredients, you just need to know how much of each to mix together.
Let’s breakdown the formula for this recipe using the smallest ingredient as the base, what you will need is:
- 1 part of nutmeg
- 2 parts of cloves
- 4 parts of ginger
- 8 parts of cinnamon
The math is simple and you can make as much or as little pumpkin pie spice mix as you need. But with Fall baking season coming up, I recommend making a little extra, you can always store it in an airtight jar and save this pumpkin pie spice recipe substitute for another day.
Once you are comfortable and familiar with mixing up your own pumpkin pie spice blend, you can start experimenting by decreasing or increasing certain spice to create a different flavor profile to your own taste. Beyond that, you can even start adding other spices or leaving out certain ones that you don’t like.
