I'm baking a banana tarte tatin and I've just realised I have no allspice
I'm too lazy to go to the shops just for one thing, what do you think would be a workable substitute ?

Allspice, also called Jamaica pepper, Myrtle pepper, pimento , or newspice, is a spice which is the dried unripe fruit of the Pimenta dioica plant. The name "allspice" was coined by the English, who thought it combined the flavour of several aromatic spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
One teaspoon ground allspice is equivalent to approximate 5 whole berries.
If you need a substitute for allspice combine equal parts of ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper.
Do you have any of those spices?

In the oven baking, I tasted the filling and it's perfect if I do say so myself

I just had a slice with a big dollop of double cream and it was divine !
