Chai Cupcakes

I hope these go down well, I started to make the standard vanilla cup cake mixture but then added a teaspoon of my mums chai masala.

When I took a bite it tasted like the best tea and cake combo.

Try it and let me know what it tastes like for you.


I'm o.k, I know soon this blog will be flooding with comments and swapsies.

Recipe for 20 cakes:


200g Wholemeal self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
half teaspoon Savita Patel's chai masala
150g muscovado dark sugar
200g soft butter

Icing sugar
Pink colouring
Almond essence


Preheat oven 180°C
Whisk sugar and butter until light brown
Add one egg at a time and keep on whisking
Fold in flour and baking powder
Add essence and chai masala

Fill cases and bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
Keep your cool, and let them cool too.

Remember these cakes started from a bit of flour, eggs etc and now they are alive and cooking. Just give them some space to get used to their surroundings before they get eaten.

Make your icing sugar all lovely, pink and almond flavoured.

Cakes with tea are nice and a classic.

Have a great evening.x
