Chai Tea bread

I don't know about any body else but when its cold and blustery outside , I like nothing better than hankering down with a cup of tea and a great piece of cake (always homemade), baking that contains warming spices always seems so comforting to me. Chai tea is also very comforting so I decided to merge the two in this cake , I was very pleased with the resultant warmingly spiced tea loaf, deliciously moist and very moreish.

  • 2 cups plain flour - sieved
  • 2 tsp baking powder (level)
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower margarine
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs free range
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1/2 cup of chai tea, cooled (I used vanilla chai tea bags by Pukka)
  • 1/3 cup of skimmed milk
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pre heat your oven to 180c
  • Oil spray your 2lb loaf tin and line lengthwise with a piece of grease proof paper or baking parchment
  • In your mixer, mix all you ingredients until smooth and well incorporated, be careful not to over mix
  • Pour into your prepared tin
  • Bake for approximately 45 -50 minutes, until well risen, golden and tests cooked with a skewer
  • Cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from tin and leaving to cool fully on a wire rack .
  • Stores well when wrapped in foil.
