Need a spice cake mix but can’t find one in the store? Create one yourself using a yellow cake mix.How to Create a Spice Cake Mix - Need a spice cake mix? Create one using a yellow cake mix and spices you probably have on hand.

Tomorrow I have a fantastic apple spice cake recipe to share with you. It’s a recipe made with a spice cake mix. I searched a few stores and could not find a spice cake mix. I’ve had this trouble in the past. I’ve substituted a yellow cake mix for a spice cake mix before, but it wasn’t quite the same. A friend told me to just make my own with some spices and a yellow cake mix. She shared her recipe with me and said I could pass it onto you.

This cake mix uses four spices that you probably have on hand. You need ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, and ground ginger. I used to think that allspice was a mixture of other spices. I learned that it’s actually made from a dried fruit from a special myrtle tree that is grown in various warm places around the world. Whatever it is, it’s a great spice to have on hand!How to Create a Spice Cake Mix

Spice Cake Mix

You start out with a yellow cake mix. Any brand will work. I often buy a store brand. I put that in a bowl and add the ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, and ground ginger. There isn’t very much of each spice, but they really make a difference. Once the mix is created, you can complete the cake according to the package directions. I love to take cake mixes and turn them into something fantastic. Tomorrow’s cake is no exception to that.
