Make Your Own Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

So what happens when cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves mingle together?

Well, you got yourself some pumpkin pie spice mix. πŸ™‚

I don’t think I have ever came across pumpkin pie spice mix in Australia. But then I never really look out for it. Since it’s Autumn in other side of the world, I have been noticing a lot pumpkin related recipes in the blogosphere. And some of them contained pumpkin pie spice mix.

This has somehow reminded me of the pumpkin pecan pieΒ  which I’ve made a while back.Β  One feedback I got from a friend was that it was not “spicy” enough for him. Hmmm… what a fussy friend, don’t you reckon? πŸ˜›

Since I have now mixed together pumpkin pie spice at home, I am looking forward to add this spice mix in my next pumpkin pie baking adventure. Watch this space. πŸ™‚

Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix

(recipe from

The following proportion yields about 1/8 cup, adds up to be 6.5 tsps

What you’ll need:-

  • 4 tsps ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves

Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl. To transfer the spices from the bowl in a bottle, you can first transfer the spices to a piece of baking paper (make sure it’s big enough to hold all the spices). Then left the baking paper on both sides (see photo above for further guidance) to form a “tunnel” and slowly pour the spices into a bottle (make sure it is an airtight container to ensure the longevity of the freshness).
