Spice Blend For Quick Breads, Cookies & More

Ready and waiting to be used as a flavor-packed addition to your quick breads and cookies, this dry spice blend is a real comfort, especially when you want to get something sweet and aromatic in and out of the oven, in a hurry. In addition to the suggested uses in the title of this recipe, this mixture tastes great when sprinkled on sautéed apples, in applesauce, fresh apple or pear pies, in whipped cream and even in cooked sweet potatoes or winter squash, mashed or drizzled with little softened butter and maple syrup.

  • 1/2 cup ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup nutmeg (preferably freshly grated)
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • pinch salt
