Fall Spice Blend
This simple and delicious Fall Spice Blend is such an easy fall baking hack. Just mix it up, and it’s ready whenever you get those fall baking cravings!
So much of fall baking is about fall spices. Who can resist baked goods flavored with warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger are perfect treats on a cool fall day? I often find myself using the same spices again and again in my fall baking, so I like to make up a small batch of my favorite blend to use all season.
Having my Fall Spice Blend ready to measure is a simple way to streamline the baking prep process. And you’ll have fewer measuring spoons to clean, too!
You can easily scale this blend to make more or less to suit your needs. Most any container that seals well will work to hold the spices. I often use a Weck jar, as shown in the top photo. If you have an empty spice jar, that’s a simple way to repurpose those. And if some of you have some design talent, then you can even make a pretty label for your jar of fall spices.
I’ll offer a couple of notes about this spice blend. I often use fresh nutmeg because I prefer the flavor. If you do that, just keep in mind that you’ll need to use less than if you were using ground nutmeg. I’ve noted that in the recipe, too. Also, for those of you who enjoy pumpkin spice, be aware that those spice blends usually contain cloves, which I don’t include in this blend. If you want to include cloves, just add them in the same ratio as the allspice and cardamom.
And if you like a little more ginger or maybe a little less nutmeg, then simply adjust it to your tastes. You’ll even find that I alter it a bit sometimes in my recipes to change things up a bit. This is my favorite blend, but you should make whatever adjustments you want to make it suit yours. I think you’ll find that having a premixed spice blend ready to measure is such a nice baking shortcut.
To use your Fall Spice Blend, just substitute it for a list of the same or similar spices in a recipe. You can even use it in many recipes that only have cinnamon. Here are some recipes on BoB that would be great candidates for using this Fall Spice Blend.
