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!

TIA!
Stacy

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!
