Mixed Spice

Mixed spice is used throughout the British Isles and is similar to what is referred to in the United States as Pumpkin Pie Spice, the predominant flavor being cinnamon. Here is a typical blend.

  1. I like using Mixed Spice instead of pumpkin pie spice in baking. Never had it with coriander before and it is a nice addition. I tried this out in my oatmeal, but looking forward to using it in a spice cake.

  2. I love mixed spice! I use it in everything: baked goods of course, coffee/(iced) tea, hot cereal, meat-especially meatballs, stirred into butter as a delicious spread for scones, etc. The only change is that I start with whole spices, lightly dry roast in a cast iron skillet then pulverize in a clean coffee mill. Prepared for CQ 2017.
