Chai Cinnachip Muffins by zimngir

Category: Desserts - Cakes



This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.





Ingredients:

-----------------------------------------------------

Chai Cake/Muffins

Chef Deb



1 1/2 cups flour



3/4 cup natural sugar



2 tsp baking powder



1/4 tsp salt



3/4 cup soymilk



8 chai tea bags (or Bengal Spice)



2 tsp vanilla



1/4 cup oil



1/2 cup cinnamon chips (omit for a vegan option)



Ener-G Egg Substitute for 1 egg, beaten





Instructions:

-----------------------------------------------------

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease a muffin pan with 6 cups (texas sized) or an 8" cake pan.

In a saucepan, put soymilk gently on low heat.

Add tea bags, and simmer 15 minutes, pressing tea bags gently to extract flavor.



Wring out tea bags into soymilk. Top up with more soy milk back to 3/4 cup. Put

this flavored soymilk in fridge to cool.

In large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Combine remaining ingredients, including flavored soymilk, and add to flour

mixture.

Beat for 2 minutes. If too stiff, add a bit more soy milk.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out

dry.

Makes one 8" cake or 6 muffins.

JUST MADE THESE AN THEY WERE YUMMMMMMMMMMMMY!!!



I'm only interested in trying "tried-and-true" or "personal favorites" recipes from these boards, so this was a great one to start with... there's way too many "cut and paste" recipes posted that I have no idea if they're any good or not.



THANKS! *off to have my muffins and mug of my favorite Chai tea...*

...yum. everyone should definitely try these...they are tasty, healthy and just the right consistency. I used a small pack of applesauce instead of Ener-G (I've never really liked the weird powdery egg replacers) and it worked fine! These are a total hit...

Where does one get cinnamon chips? I've never seen those! The recipe does look really good.

I'm going to have to try these... Do they come out very moist? Do they rise much?

I'm hoping someone knows of vegan cinnachips? I've seen some Hershey ones at the market, but they had something "unvegan" (milk, I think) in them.

The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol

They come out really moist with a great texture and rise up really nice. I would think these would be really good with walnuts as well. I am going to google now to see if I can find vegan cinnamon chips.

Do I really need to use so many tea bags? Could I not just use four and squeeze them a bit?

Use as many as you want. The flavor will be stronger or milder. Your call.

Wow, this sounds so yummie! I'm gonna do them tomorrow on my birthday if I find the time.



So.. you can leave the cinnamon chips out, eh? because they don't seem to exist in Germany. /: but I'm gonna ask for them at the end of the month, when I'm in London! *_*





PS: What does this mean: "Top up with more soy milk BACK to 3/4 cup." - does this mean, another 3/4 cup?

Sorry it means that your milk will boil down to less that 3/4 cup and you need to add more milk as necessary to bring it back up to 3/4 cup.

>>>>Is making cake right now!

I made these, but since I had chai soymilk, I used that instead of using the tea bags. I also made the glaze. They were good, my omni bf liked them a lot too!
