It happened as a happy accident. 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.

Over time I have refined this cinnamon roll seasoning to be a perfect blend of spices that is perfect for all your baking needs.

I call this is a cinnamon roll seasoning mix, but it’s essentially a British mixed spice recipe. Mixed spice is a blend of spices used in baked goods like hot cross buns, pudding, and cakes. It is similar to a pumpkin pie spice (affiliate link) blend, although the ratios and spices is different.

What you need to make this recipe:

  • Cinnamon – Use a good quality cinnamon. I prefer using a Saigon variety as it has a really rich flavor.
  • Nutmeg – For best flavor, I suggest grating your own nutmeg fresh!
  • Allspice – a very aromatic baking spice
  • Cloves – Adds a rich depth of flavor and balances the sweetness.
  • Mace – a milder nutmeg flavor with a hint of citrus and peppery flavor
  • Ginger – adds a little bite
  • Coriander – you just need a hint to add some nuttiness

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 (affiliate link) 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:
