I know this has been a topic discussed quite recently, BUT if you have not added Vanilla Chai Spice to your plain white cake recipe yet - YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!!!!!!!!
It is WONDERFUL!!!!! I made a cake this weekend to try this new flavor out and I got SIX orders for the holiday season!!!
Try it! I put 3 tablespoons in the mix instead of the suggested 2. My mix was large enough for one 14" by 3" round with just a small amount left over for two cupcakes.
Please try - even if only for your personal cake needs!!!!
Is this a powder or liquid?
I tried putting it in creamcheese frosting with a spice cake with apple filling. It was so good and everyone wanted to know what was in the frosting. I'll be trying it in a cake soon.
It is a powder, but it comes in a liquid form as well. I think you could just replace some of your normal liquid with the coffee mate if you could not find the powder form.
Where do you buy it?? I'd like to try some.
You can get it at the grocery store. I get it at my super Walmart. It's a special edition along with the coconut creme so I don't know how ling there're available for. Probably awhile.
Yes, please share on where to find this must have!
bump, yeah me too
Awwwh darn..Our Walmarts here in Canada don't carry it!!! Poo!!
What brand is it? I need to go out today so I would like to try it.
Can you get the Chai Tea liquid base that you mix with milk? It comes in a box and is usually in the coffee and tea section of the store. I used that in place of the liquid and it turned out yummy.
Yeah we have to buy the liquid coffee mate up here...I tried the
Toffee-vanilla- caramel in my white cake and everyone LOVED it!!! I replaced a cup of water with the creamer. VERY YUMMY!!!!
You should be able to get it where they sell coffeemate brand creamer, that's who makes it. They have a liquid or powder. I've seen it at jewlels too. That's all they have in my town.
nope just the liquid here as far as I can find!!
If it tastes that good hopefully it won't be taken off the market soon.
I'll try looking there!!
I can't wait to try this......and yes, I think the OREGON CHAI brand of chai tea (liquid) would taste really good, too (it's in the coffee and tea section of the grocery store - in a purple box). I can't remember what color the vanilla is in.
For those who aren't aware, this time of year, Coffeemate also makes a Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer and Eggnog Creamer. Oh, YUM, huh? I'm going to try both of these in a cake and/or icing. Can't wait. I think both of them will go over very big around Thanksgiving and Christmas !!
I already saw the pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha in the liquid, not powder
thank you--can't wait to try these combinations just in time for the holidays!
thanks for the info, I have to run to the store soon so guess I'll buy some then.
me too! Sounds awesome! So, like you just add 3 TBS powder to the cake mix?
made the cake and it's good. I'm not really a chia fan so it's alright to me but my DH doesn't eat white cake and he LOVED it! Even said in 2 weeks to make it again
can anyone tell me if they've tried this in frosting? i've made the cake--but want to try this...
I can't claim to be the originator of this (and sorry CC members, I can't remember who posted it a few weeks ago!)
But I used strong chai tea as the liquid in my white cake. Holy cow. Sooooo good. One of my favorites (and there was no chocolate involved! LOL)
So you can get a box of chai tea bags and make up super-strong tea before starting on the cake. I also added a little bit of cinamon and ginger to the mix as well.
For buttercream, I just added cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg (just a tiny bit of each).
