Chai Cake

I keep buying tea packs in spite of me not being an avid tea lover. I mean I love them in a cool weather occasionally but not the regular tea/ coffee drinker. So the other day when I was cleaning and found some masala tea powder, all I could think of is a tea cake. Yes, Tea cake and trust me as yummy as it sounds it tastes even better.

Today, I share the recipe. It’s a treat for tea and cake lovers as the combination works well. Do try and let me know how it turned for you.

Wheat flour n maida both 3/4 cups, each – 1 1/2 cup(see notes )

Baking soda – 3/4 tsp

Baking powder – 1 1/4 tsp

Oil/ butter – 3/4 cup

Sugar – 1 cup

Chai Cake


1. Take a round pan and butter it generously, dust it with flour and tap off the excess. Set it aside till use.

2.Preheat the oven to 180 Degree C / 360 Degree F.

3..Take flour, baking powder and baking soda in a sifter and sieve them. Set them aside till use.

4.Boil the tea with water and discard the masalaa. Keep the water for use.

5.Take oil, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and mix them well.

6.Add in the yogurt and mix well. Add the tea boiled and strained.

7.Now add flour mixture and fold well.

8.Pour the batter and top it with tuti fruity.

9.Bake it preheated oven for 40 to 45 mins till it is completely baked. Insert a skewer into the loaf cake till there is no wet batter on that.

10.Allow the cake to cool down for 15 mins.



Only wheat flour can be used too or only maida.. I used both in equal proportion.
