YOU WILL NEED:
  • 4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground mace
  • 1/3 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/5 tsp ground white pepper (a pinch)
  • 1/5 tsp ground cardamom (a pinch)
  • 1/5 tsp ground coriander seeds (a pinch)
  • 1/5 tsp ground anise seeds (a pinch)
  • 1/5 tsp grated nutmeg (a pinch)
  • TIPS:

  • If you can't find (or don't have) some of the ingredients it is OK to leave some out, but make sure you include the cinnamon, cloves, mace, and ginger.

  • If you only have whole spices at home, you can grind the spices yourself using a coffee grinder, or even a food processor and a fine sieve.

  • If you need koekkruiden for a recipe, leave out the cloves.
