Chai Coffee Cake And A Giveaway

Chai Coffee Cake

It won't be a surprise to say that there is always cake at the ready in the house. Whether it be for B. as a late night snack after a music job, friends dropping by on a late saturday afternoon, or simply as a quick snack as we pass by the kitchen. It's usually a variation of my grandma's yogurt cake. Always good. Always comforting. One cake I never make enough is coffee cake. You know, the kind with the lovely strudel top that is both crunchy and soft as you bite into it. But then Nicole's Chai Spiced Coffee Cake entered my life. Twice in one week. Three times a day, once.

I did not make it twice just for us and just because. You see, a couple of weeks ago, I received an email from a high school senior here in town, Haley, whose senior project was to recreate the Julie-Julia project but with David Lebovitz' Room For Dessert book. Haley asked if I would have a bit of time to give her some tips about running her blog chronicling the project, photography, writing, etc... I said yes. I remember when I started blogging that I was often looking up to my seniors for pointers (I still do at times) so I thought it was a great opportunity to give back to the blogging community. I am no expert but I have been at this blogging thing for a while now, eheheh.

And I love when life on the screen brings about wonderful little happenings like this!

Chai Spices

Anyway, I thought we'd have some cake and tea and get right into the nitty nifty gritty of blogging and pictures. Well, schedules got out of hands and I never got to make that Chai Coffee Cake for Haley. We did meet this week and spent a great afternoon. I hope I answered her questions, at least until next time we meet. I gave her tips on how to operate her point and shoot camera to the best of its capacity, tips on light, focus, etc...and let her play with my props. Hopefully, there will be cake next time we do this!

I love this cake on so many levels but first and foremost because it is one of the recipes that Nicole included in her newly released first cookbook, "The Baking Bites Cookbook". Nicole's Blog, Baking Bites is one of the handful of blogs I started reading prior to starting my own. We were "blog friends from afar" until we finally met at BlogHer Food in San Francisco. Nicole is as delightful and true as she is on her blog. I am so proud that she achieved one of her lifelong dreams by writing this book.

Chai Coffee Cake

I bluntly asked her if I could feature one of her recipes and introduce some of you to her blog if you did not read it already and to her "baby", The Baking Bites Cookbook. She agreed. I bluntly added "hey! Would you be ok to give a copy to one reader?" and she said yes. So here you go: there is one free copy of this delicious book up for grabs. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. The giveaway runs until Monday November 2nd, midnight US Eastern time and a reader will be chosen at random to receive a copy.

Given how good the Chai Coffee Cake was, I can't wait to bake more from Nicole's book!

Chai Coffee Cake


Chai-Spiced Crumb Coffee Cake, from The Baking Bites Cookbook with permission of Nicole Weston:

Cinnamon is the standard spice for topping a crumb coffee cake. This coffee cake keeps the crumb topping and spices it up a little more by using some of the same flavors that are found in chai, including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and allspice. These spices really help to make the coffee cake memorable - and they also make you want to come back for a second slice.

Note: the only change I made to the recipe was to fill my baking pan with half the batter, sprinkle some of the topping and add the remaining batter and topping.

Topping:
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly

Cake:
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup sour cream, full or low fat

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or lightly greased aluminum foil.

Make the Topping:
In a medium bowl, combine all topping ingredients except butter. Whisk to blend.
Gradually stir in the melted butter, using a large fork or spatula to mix. When all the butter has been incorporated and the mixture looks like wet sand, squeeze small clumps together to make large crumbs ranging in size from that of a pea to that of a grape. Set aside.

Make the Cake:
In another medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla extract. With the mixer set on a low speed (or by hand), alternately add in flour and sour cream in two or three additions. When no streaks of flour remain, pour into prepared pan. Top evenly with crumb mixture.
Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack before slicing.
Serves 9-12

Joana said...

What happens at home is that if I bake a cake that both my daughter and I like (the other three members are not cake people :()there's nothing left by next day. I try to keep a slice or two so my daughter can have some for breakfast and packed lunch but sometimes is VERY difficult... And then obviously I put on weight and I say to myself "no more baking!!!" But I can't... It's something that I never thought I could do and the day I managed to take a nice cake out of the oven that was the day I said "this is my new passion! Congrats on your blog, I love it.

gajra said...

Ida said...

Beautiful pictures, as always! And the cake sounds delicious.

pastry studio said...

You are of course an expert! How sweet of you to help Haley. She is very lucky to have your guidance.

I think bakingbites was one of the first blogs I started reading way back when. This cake looks fantastic. I can see why you keep baking it! I just made some Chai Ice Cream and it's that same rush of all these amazing spices. Beautiful photos.

thecoffeesnob said...

I love chai! I was resisting getting The Baking Bites cookbook because I really have way too many cookbooks as it is. But with a recipe like it, it sounds like such a fantastic book. Looks like I just have to make space for one more book!

Crystal said...

Congrats to Nicole, and thank you for sharing the recipe :)

downsized76 said...

Rachelle said...

Omigoodness! Another reason to have cake in the kitchen?! As IF I needed one. (wink) I've got quite the sweet tooth ... my dentist can attest to that. Can't wait to try this. I can't have coffee or tea without a little something sweet. My lips thank you. My hips hate you.

Just found your blog -- love the recipes and the great photos! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Nichole's book.

Vi Vian said...

I understand what it means to have your dream come true. Especially when you are full with passion on baking. Similarly, I left my profession and opening up a café soon in Spain serving food primarily from childhood (Asian). So, I truly understand what it means for her. Congratulations to Baking Bites and good luck to her venture.

I have been a silent reader on your blog for a while but very productive behind screen. Your apple tarts and panna cottas are my family's favourite!

Nekkutyttoe said...

I took a look at the recipe, and immediately thought "Christmas!" Those are exactly the spices that grandmother uses in her gingerbread biscuits. The recipe originally comes from her mother, who apparently was a very strict lady, but always kept jars of biscuits and other goodies hidden in her cupboards at the farm, even during the first world war.

Christine! said...

Mm, I'm always a fan of coffee cake. :)

macky said...

Zeitgeist said...

I have a "love, hate" relationship with Chai flavor. I love it because I love all sorts of spices combo, whether it is in dessert or in cooking. I hate it because depending on the right mixture and the right amount of spices used, the flavor can sometimes come out strange and weird tasting. Not sure if you know what I meant!

But...anything that you create, I will have to at least learn how to make!

sweetfrenchtoast said...

This looks wonderful! I'd love to win the book.

Sweet Joy said...

Coffee Cake! Growing up my dad insisted on us eating a healthy breakfast, but once a week he would make something special. Coffee cake was a frequent special item. It has been a long time since I have had coffee cake and I can't wait to start with this recipe!

Well, I suppose it's as good a year as any to work on it. And coffee cakes are somewhere not too intimidating to start.

Thank you.

I LOVE your photographs. I first came here to see recipes, but now I visit as often as I can just to see the wonderful photos! (And of course the recipes are fabulous, too!)
