Cardamom has a flavor and fragrance all it's own, but if you don't have any on hand, this cardamom substitute is a decent stand in:

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 2 minutes


  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg


Mix together equal parts cinnamon and nutmeg, and use in place of the cardamom called for in your recipe.

Out of nutmeg? Try equal parts cinnamon and ginger or equal parts cinnamon and ground cloves instead.
