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

Have made many coffee cakes but never a Chai flavoured one. Can't wait...and neither can my husband!

maybelle's mom said...

I love everything with those flavors. And, as to mentoring, in my real job I have 2-4 interns every semester. I love doing it. I think it is great that you had a shadow and helped her.

Quinn said...

I love chai tea but not chai latte. I even make my own chai tea panna cotta. And this one certainly looks too good to be missed out!

Nicole is good, I know that. She gave me the most amazing cheesecake crust ever. Not your usual graham biscuits base but a shortbread base!

I'm indeed very impressed!

Engineer Baker said...

Ah, so that's what you were brewing up ;) I love coffeecakes - we always have one for breakfast at Christmas, and it's quite the production. So now, coffeecake reminds me of Christmas, which is definitely not a bad thing!

LeeYong from Jersey

Mireya said...

Yum, yum! Thanks for the giveaway!!

Tartelette said...

squirrelbread: nope, only the last pictures was done with film and my husband played with the chemicals during processing so this is why it looks the way it does.

southernpeach: chai means tea in Indian. What makes it different is the combination of all the spices as opposed to "regular" tea.

Susan @ SGCC said...

I can never resist a good coffee cake either. This one looks like a great one to start the day with! Thanks for letting us know about Nicole's book. I'll have to check it out!

Andra said...

The chai coffee cake sounds aromatic and wonderful-a nice change for my family who sometimes wearies of my fall fondness for all things pumpkin.

Melissa said...

Oh, yum! Congratulations, Nicole!

Ophy said...

Ahhh, a chai coffe cake sounds scrumptious and perfect for Fall! :)

Hettar7 said...

I miss the Chai tea I got when I was in India. Can't really find a domestic equivalent. :( So anything that promises those flavors is welcome. And imagine my delight when looking through by backlog of blogs and I come across not only this recipe but also the Chai Butter Cookies from Ezra Pound Cake. Sweetness!

Oh, and I think it's wonderful of you to mentor a novice blogger.

Bbq Dude said...

That's a handsome lookin' cake, you have there...

Deppified said...

I drink chai twice a day, so this will be a perfect pairing!

Abby (Nibble, Nourish, Run) said...

I would love a copy of that book - and that coffeecake looks delicious!

Christine aka Mistress of Cakes said...

There is only one alteration I would make to the recipe: Crumb topping X4 lol.

Talia said...

Oh wow, I guess I've fallen behind in my Baking Bites readership; I didn't realize she had a cookbook coming!

lollie8888 said...

Chai in coffee cake form?!? I must buy cardamom and make asap!

Can't wait to try this recipe. Especially since chai is a favorite in my family (my daughters only-my husband hates chai) Maybe that means he won't eat all the cake like he usually does! We can only hope...

duchess.of.dirt said...

Ah, this is great. I have the habit of keeping a bag of loose chai for making where-ever there is boiling water/warm milk. Yumm.
