Elizabeth David's sweet spice mixture for...

Chelsea buns, etc.

Sweet spice mixture (grind down to a powder)

1 level teaspoon black peppercorns
1 level teaspoon whole cloves
2 teaspoons coriander seed
half level teaspoon green cardamom seeds (removed from shell)
half a grated fresh nutmeg
half inch of cinnamon stick
One quarter level teaspoon dried ginger

Note: in her book English Bread and yeast Cookery, Elizabeth David said pepper helps to set the spice flavours. And shes right. Its the perfect balance.
