On the 1st of December we officialy start the real Christmas season. So it is the very last call for baking gingerbread cookies! They require the highest quality gingerbread spice mix. Where or how to get it? Just make it yourself from the best, fresh spices!

Homemade gingerbread spice mix

9 tbsp


  • 2,5 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1,5 tbsp ground allspice
  • 1 tbsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp ground cloves
  • 1 tbsp ground cardamom
  • a pinch of black pepper


  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir together. Keep in an airtight container or a jar.

If you have the opportunity or you just feel like working a bit more on the mix, try grinding your spices by yourself. You can buy whole nutmeg, allspice or cardamom and grind it using a good grinder. I ground only allspice and, I must admit, I could smell it the most.
