The secret ingredient in this cake is freshly ground cardamom.   The cardamom pods contain little seeds that can be ground in a food processor or blender. You want to do this right before you make the cake so that it is as fresh and aromatic as possible.

Ingredients List for Delightful Cardamom Spiced Chai Cake Recipe

Did you know that most Baking Powder is made with corn and contains aluminum? You can find Corn Free Baking Powder free from aluminum in the natural section of most grocery stores and at Blush Lane Organics Stores in Calgary.

Tips for making Delightful Cardamom Spiced Chai Cake Recipe

Making Delightful Cardamom Spiced Chai Cake Recipe

Chai cake is usually made in a bundt cake pan.  You don’t have to use a bundt pan, but it makes the cake look so pretty!  As well, the hole in the middle speeds up the baking time and makes sure that the cake is not undercooked in the middle.

Baked Cardamom Spiced Chai Cake Recipe

Make sure you grease the pan like crazy with butter (or another natural non-stick oil) before you pour in the batter or your cake will fall apart when you flip it over.

You will probably be dying to just flip over the pan and dig in as soon as you take it out of the oven, but its crucial to let the cake cool for at least 15 minutes before you remove it from the pan.

Plated Cardamom Spiced Chai Cake Recipe

And of course you don’t have to have this cake with chai or tea.  I just called it Chai cake because that is what people usually drink with the cake.  My husband would prefer a nice latte and kids love it with a cold glass of milk.

ENJOY!

    That looks so yummy! I’m jealous of how perfectly your cake came out of the pan. Can I use ground cardamom (from the bottle)? I’m too lazy to grind the seeds!
