Do you remember my Moroccan Chai Spice Cupcakes?
Well, I posted on Twitter that I had baked them, and @Drinkmechai tweeted back with an offer to send me some samples so that I could create another Chai Spice recipe with their product! How nice is that?!
So I baked regular vanilla cupcakes with a hint of the Vanilla Chai Spice Mix I was given.
Thank you, @Drinkmechai for sending me some samples so I can bake delicious cupcakes!
I think all of you should make these. I love my Chai Tea Latte's at Starbucks, and now I can enjoy a Chai cupcake along side of them!
Vanilla cupcake recipe from a book called Perfect Cupcakes
- 3/4 cup (90g) All-Purpose (Plain) Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 cup (60g or 4 T) Butter
- 1/4 cup (60g) Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/3 cup (85ml) Milk
- 2 tablespoons Drink Me Chai Vanilla Chai Spice Mix
- 2 cups Confectioners' (Icing) Sugar
- 1/2 cup (8 T) Butter
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 2 teaspoons Almond Flavoring
♥ Preheat oven to 350 F / 180 C
♥ Prepare a 6 cup cupcake tin with liners or lightly grease it
♥ In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and the vanilla chai spice mix
♥ In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar
♥ Beat in the egg and vanilla
♥ Mix half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture
♥ Stir in milk and the rest of the flour
♥ Pour the batter into the cupcake liners and bake for 20-25 minutes
♥ While the cupcakes are baking, beat the butter for the frosting until light and fluffy
♥ Add in the confectioners' (icing) sugar
♥ Stir in the vanilla and almond flavorings
♥ I refrigerated the frosting until the cupcakes were done and cooled down because my kitchen gets too hot and melts the frosting! So you can do it too if you want! :)
