Default Cinnamon Allergy

I'm not much of a cook or a baker, but I love pumpkin baked goods. The problem is, the store bought stuff all has cinnamon, which I'm allergic to. I want to make a pumpkin quick bread. If I leave out the cinnamon in this recipe should I replace it by increasing the other spices or maybe adding all spice or just leave it out? Thanks!
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 15-oz can 100% pure pumpkin (I use Libby's)

Allspice might be a good alternative.

I agree that the Allspice would be a good alternative to the cinnamon.

I did a search and happened across https://www.livestrong.com/article/5...c-to-cinnamon/

I did find a few other references that indicated that when using allspice as a substitute that you should reduce the amount of allspice.

I found recommendations for replacing cinnamon with only ¼ of the amount of allspice.

Thanks everybody! 1/4 tsp of Allspice is what I’ll use. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

I thought Allspice was a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves & ginger. Be sure & check out the ingredients on the one you buy before using it.

This is what I found when searched: "In reality, allspice is made of only one spice, the dried berry of the Jamaican pimento tree. Allspice got its name from its complex flavor, which tastes like a mixture of spices such as cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper."

Lots of good information here. Especially about reducing the amount of allspice as a replacement. Thanks!

I think that's the mix called "Pumpkin Pie Spice." Allspice is a separate spice all its own, not a mix of spices.
Thank you for the comment! I did double check that.
