Anybody care to share their tried and true Chai Tea cake recipes? I am looking to make cupcakes, and eventually layer cakes with it. Scratch or doctored box are fine - I do both.

I have found a few recipes, but I'm not sure what to use, and I even thought if using the caramel vanilla cake recipe from the recipe section and subbing out the creamer for chai tea latte mix... So let me know what y'all do!

I use my yellow cake recipe and add powdered chai.

Thanks Chutzpah!

Most of the recipes I've seen have been for a bundt cake and I don't think that's what I'm going for here. The caramel vanilla cake recipe on here is a doctored yellow cake mix (I know your feelings on that icon_wink.gif ) that uses powdered creamer for the caramel vanilla flavor. So I think I'll start with that and sub powdereed chai latte for my first try and go from there.

I think your idea of using the powdered chai mix will work just fine. When I made mine, I used a yellow box mix and doctored it with the spices. The spices are pretty basic and I already had them on hand.

There is a fabulous Chai cupcake recipe in the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World book. If you'd like it, pm me your e-mail address and I'll send it to you icon_smile.gif (you can make it non-vegan by using butter/milk etc as preferred!).

I made chai tea cupcakes and they were heavenly!! I made about 2 cups of chai tea using my powdered spiced chai tea and just replaced the liquid in the recipe for this. For the icing I prepared a simple buttercream recipe and added some of the powder to the icing. Voila!
