Spices are integral to baking of all kinds, from delicate pastries to hearty breads and rich cakes. Whether you need cinnamon for your snickerdoodle cookies, cocoa powder for a chocolate cake, or vanilla for crème brûlée, you'll find The Spice House has the freshest, highest-quality baking spices available. Pastry chefs agree that our spices are the top of the line, and the bonus is that they are affordable for home use. The baking spices in this list were chosen with sweet, rather than savory, baking in mind, but don't feel limited by these designations. The bakers on our staff are also fond of ground pepper and coriander in apple pie, thyme and rosemary in lemon bars, and mild ancho chilies in brownies and chocolate cake, just to name a few examples.
