Chai Spice Mix

Cook’s notes: I adore this spice blend and have made it several times. It’s different from a lot of cinnamon blends. The cardamom is an interesting flavor.

The original author of this recipe says, “Use this spice mix in hot cocoa, chocolate cake, muffins, banana bread, or granola. Substitute it for the spices in pumpkin or apple pie. Or use it in chocolate bark” (link). It would also be delicious on spiced pecans.

2 Tablespoons cinnamon powder
2 Tablespoons ground cardamom
2 Tablespoons ground ginger
1 Tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons allspice powder
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground pepper

Mix all spices together in a small bowl. Store at room temperature in a sealed container.
