It happened as a happy accident over a year ago. I was making homemade cinnamon rolls, and I ran out of cinnamon. I rapidly just threw random spices into the mix and went with it. And I discovered that I loved it. So when I saw that this month’s Daring Cook’s Challenge was to make your own spice blend, I knew that it was finally time I shared this little secret with you. For the month of April, Sawsan from Chef in disguise challenged us to spice things up by making our own spice blends from scratch

 

Since then I have refined the amounts, and played with it until its just right.

How to Use Cinnamon Roll Spice Mix:

I find that this adds just a little something special to your cinnamon rolls. Its like cinnamon rolls have always been missing this but no one ever knew. Think of it as a perfect mix between apple pie spice, pumpkin pie spice and chai spice.
And its not just for cinnamon rolls, either. You can use this 1:1 to replace plain cinnamon in any recipe. Try it in muffins, pies, or even on some cinnamon-sugar toast!

    These look delicious – a very tasty spice mix to have in the cupboard – I imagine it would be delicious in fruit crumbles, fruitcakes and a whole lot of other sweet treats :o) Great job on the challenge
