Baking – use in place of allspice


I have a recipe for Dutch apple raisin cake that calls for a half teaspoon of allspice, which I don't have. Would ground cloves or nutmeg or a combo of both work? I know that allspice is a spice unto itself.

The closest thing is to combine equal parts of ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper.
