Mixed Spice‘s used in many English festive cake baking recipes. I’ve been ambitious and wanted to try to recreate a real boozy English fruit cake which we tried when we visited my sister in Newcastle-upon-Tyne a few years ago. The fruit cake we bought were chockful of fruits, boozy, rich – just delish and since then, we’re unable to find any that matches the delish factor of it..

We can’t get English Mixed Spice here (or maybe we can, but I can’t find it), so I asked on FB and checked on websites. There are quite a number of different versions but I took the one sourced by my cousin from BBC GoodFood.

So, my English Mixed Spice from BBC GoodFood.. :-)

It took some time to compile the spices, in English  (in Dutch) but this is it..

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp ground allspice  (gemalen piment)
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon  (gemalen kaneel)
  • 1 tbsp ground nutmeg  (gemalen nootmuskaat)
  • 2 tsp ground mace  (gemalen foelie)
  • 1 tsp ground cloves  (gemalen kruidnagel)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander  (gemalen koriander)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger  (gemalen gember)

Preparation:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a container with lid and shake to mix well.
  2. Store in a cool dry place and it will keep for some time.

Ooohh, wow, it smells so heavenly and I’m sure it’ll just pep up my fruitcake taste..

I used it for the 1st time in Spiced Fruit Cake which I’ll post a bit later on..
