Chai Tea Bundt Cake

This is a super simple cake that is easy to dress up with your favorite drizzle icing recipe and is excellent with coffee or hot tea! It's a good recipe when you want to do something a little different. 

Chai Tea Bundt Cake

1 cup butter, room temp

1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons ginger
2 teaspoons cardamom
1 1/2 teaspoons allspice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
cups all purpose flour 
1 cup sour cream 
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

Beat together butter, brown sugar, and honey until smooth.

Add the eggs one at a time, stir in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.

Stir half the flour into the butter/egg mixture. Add in the sour cream and vanilla. Stir in the remaining flour.

Grease a 9- or 10-cup Bundt pan. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, and bake for 50 to 55 minutes, an inserted toothpick comes out clean and cake begins to pull away from the sides. 

Enjoy and pull this out on a rainy day!


Chocolate Banana Bread

I will confess that I am not a huge banana bread fan.  Banana isn't even a flavor of anything I would choose.  This recipe however? Pretty tasty and easy.  Plus by now you know that if I add it to this blog, it's a good recipe, right? Right.

Chocolate Banana Bread
3 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 large egg 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup chocolate chips (your choice, maybe even white chocolate?)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 5 by 9in pan. 

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and allspice. Set aside

Mash bananas in a large bowl. Using a hand mixer: Combine with sugar, butter and salt. Mix in egg and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture to banana mixture. Don't over mix. Stir in chocolate chips. 

Pour into prepared pan and bake for approximately an hour.  Test with toothpick or watch for sides to pull away from pan. 

Enjoy! Even you non-banana bread fans! :)
