Set of Spices in a Wooden Spoon

Allspice is made from the dried berries of the myrtle pepper tree, found most often in Jamaica and Central America.

I think it’s pretty peppery, with hints of nutmeg, clove, and anise.

But depending on the brand and how the berries were dried, it can also taste a little like fennel and black pepper.

That’s why these allspice recipes are so varied! And from banana bread to jerk chicken, I think you’ll really love them!

20 Easy Recipes With Allspice

1. Skyline Cincinnati Chili (Copycat Recipe)

Cincinnati chili is a regional favorite beloved by many. The dish is a twist on traditional chili, and it’s made with a unique blend of spices. 

The result is a hearty, flavorful dish that’s perfect for cozy winter evenings. 

My favorite way of serving it is with pasta, but you can also use rice or mashed potatoes.

2. Bourbon Molasses Cookies

These aren’t your grandma’s molasses cookies! Instead, they’re warm, spiced, and deliciously boozy.

They’re super soft and chewy, and the spice blend of ginger, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and black pepper ensures every bite is rich and complex.

As for the bourbon, it’s not so much you’ll need to sit down after a couple of cookies. But it does bring a heavenly caramel flavor you’ll love.

3. Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin spice is the perfect flavor for fall.

It’s rich and earthy, with just a hint of sweetness. But with the other spices in the mix, it’s definitely more mellow than allspice on its own.

4. Impossible Pumpkin Pie

Have you ever tried that vanilla magic cake recipe? The one that calls for one batter but ends up with three distinct layers of yum?

Well, this is like that, only it’s pumpkin!

There’s a lovely crust on the bottom, a silky-smooth pumpkin pie filling, and a thin crust on the top (kind of like a brownie!).

And yes, you get all that with just one batter! Sounds impossible, but it’s 100% real.

5. Autumn Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

What’s the best way to celebrate autumn? With a spice cake, of course! 

This recipe is moist and fluffy, with just the right amount of sweetness. And the spice is perfectly balanced and wonderfully warming.

Meanwhile, the cream cheese frosting is rich and creamy, making the cake absolutely irresistible. 

6. Chai-Spiced Banana Bread

Want to use up those ripe bananas in a new and fun way? How about this chai-spiced banana bread recipe?

The allspice and cinnamon give it a warm flavor that complements the sweet bananas beautifully.

Moist and dense, the spices give it a delicious depth of flavor without weighing it down.

Punch up the spice even more with a quick glaze (cinnamon and allspice with powdered sugar and milk).

7. Homemade Allspice Dram

Allspice dram, also known as pimento dram, is a Jamaican liqueur made from allspice berries. 

Spicy and aromatic, this tasty liqueur can be enjoyed on its own or used in cocktails.

Allspice dram may not be as well-known as other liqueurs, but it’s definitely worth a try. 

The flavor is unique and complex, with notes of rum, allspice, and cinnamon. Yum!

It makes a terrific, unique holiday gift too!

The allspice gives the chicken an incredible peppery warmth, while the orange and lemon provide a tart, juicy contrast. 

Serve it with some green vegetables, and enjoy!

Warm, flavorful, and easy to make, your family will go nuts for this slow cooker chicken recipe.

10. Lebanese Green Beans with Tomatoes

11. Jamaican Curry Chicken

If you’re on the hunt for a delicious and effortless meal for busy weeknights, look no further than Jamaican curry chicken. 

This dish is chock-full of flavor, thanks to the fragrant spices and juicy chicken.

And if you really want to turn up the heat, add some scotch bonnet peppers to the sauce.

12. Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Jerk chicken is a Jamaican specialty that’s both delicious and a breeze to make. 

The key to jerk chicken is the marinade, which is a combination of spices, including allspice, thyme, and cayenne pepper.

Allspice and cayenne provide antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits, while thyme contains antimicrobial properties. 

As a result, jerk chicken is not only delicious but good for you to boot.

13. Applesauce Spice Cake

This wonderfully moist and flavorful cake is perfect for your next fall party or get-together. 

The applesauce makes it super moist, while the spices give it a warm flavor everyone will adore.

Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream for a truly decadent experience.

Moist and Fluffy Applesauce Muffins

14. Applesauce Muffins

These muffins are the perfect way to start your day! 

Thanks to the warm mix of cinnamon, allspice, and cloves, they’re packed with flavor.

And, of course, the applesauce ensures it’s naturally sweet and super moist.

Make them extra special with streusel on top (brown sugar, butter, and allspice), or serve them as is.

Either way, they’re super yummy.

15. Roasted Pumpkin Salad with Black rice, Apple and Kale

Make this roasted pumpkin salad once, and your family will beg you for it time and again.

The bitter kale balances the sweet pumpkin, and the black rice adds a nutty flavor and texture to every forkful. 

But that’s not all!

You’ll throw in some apples for a refreshing crunch, and a deliciously sweet and tangy dressing ties it all together with a bow.

16. Sopa de Fideo – Mexican Noodle Soup

Featuring a simple broth with tomato sauce and spices, this tasty Mexican soup can be easily customized to your taste. 

Fideo noodles are the traditional choice, but any type of pasta will work. 

You’ll cook the noodles in the broth until they’re tender. Then, serve it with shredded cheese, diced avocado, or chopped cilantro. 

17. Autumn Spiced Nuts

Fall is the time of year for cozy fires, warm drinks, and, of course, delicious food. 

And these spiced nuts are some of my favorite snacks to munch on when the weather turns cold.

They’re a fun, sweet and savory treat that tastes just as good by the handful as it does over a salad or pasta dish.

18. Cassoulet – French Classic Pork and Sausage Stew

Cassoulet is a delicious French dish that’s perfect for a winter meal. It is a stew made with pork and sausage and is usually served with beans and vegetables. 

The dish is full of flavor, and the pork and sausage give it a hearty texture. 

Cassoulet is best with white wine and a big piece of bread to mop up the juices.

19. Gingerbread Oatmeal

Few things say “holiday season” like the smell of gingerbread wafting through the house. 

And while traditional gingerbread cookies are a tempting treat, they’re not exactly a wholesome breakfast option. 

Thankfully, there’s a delicious and nutritious alternative – gingerbread oatmeal. 

This recipe combines the warm spices of gingerbread with the heartiness of oats, resulting in a bowl of comfort that will fuel your day.
