Chai Tea Latte in Carb Form

The baking bug bit me yesterday while I was craving a Chai Latte.  The result?  Chai bread!  Beware, you have to be a pretty big fan of chai, otherwise this bread is not for you.

Chai Tea Latte Quickbread

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup non-dairy milk (I used Almond)
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs (I used flax eggs)
2 cups flour (50:50 whole wheat:white)
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cloves

Prepare flax eggs (if using) ahead of time to let them develop.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees and PAM & flour a bread loaf pan.

The spices that make the Chai flavah - you could also add a dash of nutmeg

Mix all dry ingredients (except sugar) in a medium-sized bowl.  Whisk together to evenly distribute the Chai flavoring.


Mix sugar + all wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

Pour dry into wet and mix by hand.  Don’t overmix-it should be lumpy bumpy.

Pour batter into the greased & floured loaf pan.

Now…put in the oven for 50 minutes (or until toothpick/knife comes out clean) and you now have a cheaper, doughier version of that latte you were going to run to Starbucks for!

Perfect smoothie mix-in.  Breads give me my perfect smoothie texture, so chai smoothie…here I come!

What’s your favorite Starbucks drink?

Chai: YES or no?
