Chai Masala-Coffee drizzle cake

Remember Last year’s Bakethon? It was loads of fun with baking everyday/evening and posting in our blogs. I was very lucky to be associated with the like minds of Champa, Veena and Priya. This year Srivalli and Sumana have joined in too. The rules are the same, however, the pattern differs. Last year we posted each day, however, this year we are doing it thrice a week. So look out folks the days we post this month are 1st, 3rd,5th,7th,10th,12th,14th,17th,19th,21st,24th,26th,28th and 31st !!

Chai masala-coffee drizzle cake

My first contribution towards this Bakethon is Chai Masala-Coffee Drizzle cake which I baked last weekend.

To make the streusel:

Flour 175g

Butter 100g

Soft brown sugar 100g

Chai spices 1 tbsp(blend of  cinnamon, pepper, cloves, fennel, star anise, dried ginger)

Mix all these ingredients till coarse and crumbly. Set this aside.

Bake a normal base cake using the measures:

Plain flour 220g

Soft Brown Sugar 220g

Butter 220g


Baking powder 1.5 tsp

Baking Soda 1/2 tsp

Greek Yoghurt 3/4 cup(I used Total Greek Yoghurt)

In this case I added coffee extract

Sieve the flour with the raising agent.Keep aside.

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time. Beat.

Add in a part of yoghurt followed by the sieved flour spoonful at a time and fold.

To the finished mix add the coffee extract.

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees.

In a greased pan, add in half of the batter. Top this with a part of streusel. Spread the rest of the batter on the streusel. Finally, spread the rest of the streusel and bake the cake at 180 degrees for an hour.

Cool on a cooling rack.

Brew a tablespoon of coffee and mix with 1/2 cup of icing sugar. Drizzle on the cooled cake. Enjoy it with any beverage you love….this cake with warm spices is apt for the subzero temperatures here in UK!!
