VEGAN Bollywood Chai Cake Recipe

INGREDIENTS

ORGANIC BOLLYWOOD CHAI LATTE*

CHAI SPICE LOAF CAKE

  • 1 1/4 cup prepared Bollywood chai latte
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened vegan yogurt*
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, sifted
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

BOLLYWOOD CHAI GLAZE

  • 2 tbsp prepared chai latte
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ºF and grease a loaf pan (approximately 9" x 5") by lightly spraying with oil.
  2. Bring the milk to a low boil on the stove. Add the organic bollywood tea and steep for 5 minutes, then strain.
  3. In a small mixing bowl stir to combine 1 1/4 cup of the prepared chai latte along with the oil, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Reserve the remaining chai for the glaze.
  4. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, and black pepper to combine.
  5. Once the oven has preheated, add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir with a wooden spoon to make a thick batter, taking care to not over mix. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a tester comes out of the center clean or with a few crumbs.
  6. Let the cake cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then remove it and cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Make the glaze: sift the powdered sugar into a mixing bowl, add 2 tbsp of the chai steeped plant milk and mix to make a thick but pourable glaze.
  8. When the cake has cooled, pour the glaze overtop to cover.
