Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (full fat) room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups AP flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup baking soda

Chai Spice Mix

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter up a 6 cup bundt pan and dust with flour. Set aside.

    Make your chai spice mix.

    With a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream your butter and cream cheese. Then add sugars and cream for a few minutes until pale and fluffy.

    Then add eggs and vanilla and cream for a couple of minutes more.

    Next, in a separate bowl, whisk together all of your dry ingredients and the chai spice mix.

    Turn your mixer to the lowest setting before adding flour mixture. Whisk gently until it is just combined.

    Then scoop the chai cake batter into the bundt pan. It will be very thick. It is supposed to be, so spoon it rather than trying to pour it out.

    Lastly, bake it for about 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

    Allow to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes before turning into a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve warm or at room temp. Sprinkle with a dusting of powdered sugar, if desired.
