An autumn favourite, this homemade Thermomix Pumpkin Spice is easy to prepare and can be added to all kinds of dishes.
Despite the name, pumpkin spice does not contain pumpkin, but a mixture of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. You don't need a Thermomix to make it, but I like to use my one for ease.
Pumpkin Spice can be used to create favourites such as a Pumpkin Spice Latte and in baked goods like Pumpkin Pie. The mixture is a similar blend to chai spice, but without cardamom added.
What You Will Need to Prepare It
The main ingredient is cinnamon, then ginger, then a little nutmeg and cloves. I find nutmeg and cloves overwhelming, so I don't like to add too much.
If you're a cinnamon lover like me, Costco sells 300g tubs or you can order cinnamon in large quantities online. The Thermomix can also grind cinnamon quills for you.
