What Is Pumpkin Pie Spice?

Many holiday inspired baked goods, including this Pumpkin Pie Cake call for pumpkin-pie spice, but what does that mean?

Pumpkin-pie spice is a spice that is sold in many grocery stores. You'll find it in the spice aisle between Paprika and Rosemary. However, instead of rushing out and buying a specialized spice blend, why not make your own? It's a simple spice blend that is generally made from cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice - and the best part is that you can customize it to suit your tastes!

Here's my favorite blend, although sometimes I add a pinch of clove.

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
