Cozy Chai Latte Batter:
- 3 cups All purpose flour or 4 1/2 cups fresh ground Einkorn flour
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups of sweetener (honey, maple syrup, xylitol, or molasses)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup brewed cozy chai tea
- 1 cup butter
- 1/4 cup cozy chai tea
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp ground cardamon
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 3 tsp cinnamon powder To give these muffins the Cozy Chai taste we infused the butter with my special cozy chai tea mix.
Melt butter in medium size sauce pan on low heat.
Add 1/4 cup cozy chai tea to melted butter.
Keep on low heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently until foamy.
Then strain the infused butter.
Add wet ingredients:
Butter, sweetener, vanilla, eggs, milk and brewed cozy chai tea mix together until smooth.
I made a batch of cakes with molasses and a batch without. If you want a more ginger bread taste add 1 cup molasses & 1 cup honey. For the regular Chai latte cakes I just used honey for the sweetener.
Then mix in the dry ingredients.. flour, spices, baking powder, salt & ground nuts (optional ) for a more ginger bread taste.
Grease muffin tray and begin to add batter filling almost to top.
Bake at 350º F for 20 minutes checking every so often with a tooth pick, they should be light and spongy in middle and the tooth pick should come out clean.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
- 1 stick of cream cheese (8 oz) softened.
- 1/2 stick of softened butter.
- 1/2 cup Honey
- sweeten to taste.
Blend cream cheese, butter and Honey on high speed until creamy.
Let cakes cool before frosting them.
Pipe Creamy frosting on cakes and sprinkle with cinnamon powder for chai latte affect.
Eat with no regrets! Enjoy!
