Christmas Chai Tea Spiced Cake

After searching far and wide for the perfect chai cake, we stumbled across this beauty from Ruchik Randhap's website. We figured a christmas chai cake would be the perfect addition to any special occasion!

Masala Chai Cake
Masala Chai Cake - Finished Product


275gm flour
75gm (1/2 cup) packed brown sugar *see notes
75gm (1/3 cup) granulated sugar or 1/2 cup powdered sugar
150gm (2/3 cup+1 tbsp) unsalted butter softened at room temperature
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp dried orange peel powder (optional)
1/2 tsp mixed spiced powder or cinnamon powder (optional)
300gm dry fruits (I used 100gm each of raisins, black currants and dried cranberries) *see notes
200ml strong masala tea
100ml fresh orange juice
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
grated zest of an orange
grated zest of a large lime/lemon


1. Clean the dry fruits, pick stems if any and roughly chop and place in a bowl. Measure the orange juice and add enough masala tea to bring the level up to 300ml. Pour this liquid over the dry fruits, add the zests of the orange and lime and give it a good stir. Cover and keep overnight.
2. Grease and line a 26x13cm (10×5 inch) loaf pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven at 160 C for 15mins. Sift the flour, baking powder, pinch of salt and dried orange peel powder and cinnamon powder (if using) twice and keep aside.
3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar well and add one egg at a time, beat well. Add the vanilla extract and mix. Sift the flour in parts and fold well to incorporate. Add the soaked fruits with the liquid and fold again. The batter should be of dropping consistency so if you feel it is a bit too thick and dry add a tablespoon of milk at a time and fold.
4. Pour batter into the prepared tin and bake for 1 hour or until the skewer inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack/stand. Invert onto the rack after 15-20mins and allow to cool completely.
5. Serve with whipped cream, ice cream or just plain with a nice hot cup of tea or coffee.

1. To make the masala tea boil 300ml of water and add 2tbsp tea powder and 1 tsp chai masala powder (I used Everest chai masala), let it brew for half a minute, allow to sit for a couple of minutes and then strain. If you have readily available chai tea bags you may use those as well – use as per desired strength of the tea.
2. Adjust the sweetness of your cake by using dry fruits that are less sweet – prunes, dried apricots and dried cranberries are a lot less sweeter than dates and raisins.
3. You can make your own dried orange peel powder by drying orange peels in the sun for 2-3 days. Powder in a dry grinding jar and store in an airtight container.

Banana Chai

Today we are creating the Banana Chai smoothie. The weather is feeling a bit warmer lately so we are trying out new things. Smoothies are always a nice way to cool down and feel healthy so we have decided to share this idea with you. We always love to experiment new ways to use our products and this is sure to be one we will continue to make over the warmer months.

Banana Chai
The finished product


Two teaspoons of our Chai Powder
1 ripened banana
A handful of chia seeds
Your favourite milk (Full Cream, BonSoy, MilkLab Almond)


Use a blender to create a smooth texture with all the ingredients for a about a minute or so. The Chai Powder will blend fantastically with the milk and leave you with a fresh smell of real spices. Add extra milk into the blender to please. Serve on with or without ice in a large glass. Sprinkle with some cinnamon for that extra spice hit.

This creation definitely tasted like perfection when we tried it. The great thing about it is that you can be as creative as you want by adding other ingredients to suit your own tastebuds.

Get Creative with Sticky Chai

The famous Sticky Chai helped to develop Chai Me into the recognisable brand that it is today. The legendary Marcus Child, founder of Chai Me discovered this secret recipe during his daring adventure across the world on his motorcycle. The product is filled with so much culture, so much adventure and ultimately the holy grail for any Masala Chai enthusiast. Unlike many copies, Chai Me Sticky Chai delivers an all round authentic taste while staying true to the core consumer.

Sticky Chai Recipe
The product binds together naturally using Australia Honey.

Sticky Chai is traditionally blended using Assam black tea, infused with honey and whole spices. As a result of this process it hold its moisture and makes for an absolutely delicious Chai. The Ingredients can literally be grown in your own garden.


Spices - Cloves, ginger, cinnamon, cardamon, cloves, star anise
Black tea
Australian honey


Pour 360 mls of milk of choice (we prefer soy) into a stainless steel jug. Then scoop 2 large tea spoons (36 grams) of Chai Me Sticky Chai into the jug. Proceed to steam and texture milk until about 80 degrees. Pour into Tea pot and allow the milk and Sticky to steep for at least one minute. This helps infuse the flavour and extra steeping time can increase the strength of the Chai. Lastly, Serve with tea pot, cup and sauce, sit back, relax and enjoy.
