Anyone who knows me knows that since living in England, I’m obsessed with a perfect cup of tea. Usually I go for a strong every day tea, or Earl Grey, but I’ll certainly admit that a milky chai has its place. Add chocolate? I’m sooooo there.
James preferred his slices directly out of the refrigerator, and the cake is so dense that I’ll tell you, even 5 days later, it was moist and flavorful, and full of happiness. Serve a slice alongside your favorite brand of chai and you’ve got one excellent afternoon pick-me-up.
I baked my cake in a pullman loaf pan to get a perfectly flat, rectangular cake. It’s not necessary though. Bake it in any shape you like. Even cupcakes, though I don’t know how many it would make.
I also think this cake would be a holiday potluck superstar. The flavors are just different enough from the usual holiday table flavor to make people take notice, while still highlighting all the toasty favorite spices of the season. Enjoy!
