I just wanted to say a huge "Thank you!" to the person who posted the Chai Spice recipe in the recent scratch cakes recipe link here on CC. I made it for my daughter's bridal shower cake, and it was delicious! I wanted to give credit where credit is due, but I didn't see anyone's name on it. So Thanks!
Sincerely,
Neecerator

I'm interested in the recipe, too! I don't do many cakes, and I don't have room to store the boxes of cake mix required for WASC - so I've been trying scratch recipes.

Hello Friends:
I'm so very sorry, I hadn't marked to keep watching this forum, so I will find the recipe and attach it. Yes, it is very hard to find! Fortunately I copied it into a Word document so that I could keep it. It doesn't have much detail other than a list of the ingredients. I'm so addicted to Chai Tea. I found Decaf Chai "TAZO" mix at Target, and it's awesome! It saves me so much money as compared to Starbucks or Panera Bread's Chai Tea.

Anyhow, here it is: (Let me know what you think, once you've made it)
I baked mine at 325F until cake tester came out clean. It's not too spicy, just a hint of Chai, and almond-flavoured buttercream underneath almond flavoured fondant was fab! There is a picture of it in my photos, "shower cake."

I cut this recipe in half and it made 2x6" cakes and 2x8" cakes, for a total of 4 cakes! Thanks again to whomever shared this recipe!


Chai Spice

2 boxes white cake mix
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teas. salt
8 egg whites
2 2/3 cups chai spice concentrate
4 Tbls. vegetable oil
2 cups (16oz carton) sour cream
2 teaspoon clear vanilla flavor
2 teaspoons almond extract

Good luck!

I'll have to wait until I remember to buy some mix. I thought it was a scratch scratch. I'll have to think about that one. is chai spice concentrate a powder or a liquid? is it on the tea isle? I'd gotten some of the creamer powder before and loved the smell of it...haven't used it yet though.

Hi: It's a liquid that I used, and it's in a tetra packaging. "Tazo" is the brand, and I got Decaf Chai, approx. $3.99 from Target. Good luck.
