Mixed spice

Mixed spice, also pudding spice, is a mix of sweet spices commonly used in baking, desserts, and with fruit, particularly in British cuisine, and in cuisines that derive from it (e.g. the old colonies of the British empire). It is often sold premixed in grocery stores.

The mix almost always contains allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Often, other spices are added to the mix, including coriander, cloves, ginger, caraway, mace, and cayenne (historically).


This is a typical blend of spices used to make mixed spice.



  1. Blend all spices together, and store in a sealed jar away from light.
