In our home christmas time wouldn’t be the same without spice cake. This recipe is as yummy as the classic but with a modern twist. So bring on the chai, chocolate and honey & start baking!

  • 250g butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g sugar
  • 40g honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 250g flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 150g chilled semisweet chocolate
  • 150ml + 2 tbsp strong chai tea
  • 125g powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 360°F (fan-forced). Separate eggs, beat egg white until stiff. Whip up butter, egg yolks, sugar, honey and cinnamon. Mix and sift flour and baking powder. Grate chocolate. Add everything to the butter mix. Add tea and stirr well, then fold in the beaten egg whites.

Grease and flour a 30x40cm baking pan. Pour the batter into the pan and spread evenly. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool completely. Mix powdered sugar and 2 tbsp of chai tea to make the icing. Drizzle onto the cooled cake. Let the icing dry, then cut the cake into little squares and serve!
