    mariposa13's Note:

    A Watkins recipe. Definitely try to make with Watkins vanilla and cinnamon if you can. If using any other type of vanilla you will need to double the amount of vanilla in the recipe.

      This is seriously one of the best cakes ever, I mean how could you go wrong with the amazing Watkins Chai powder? I actually ate a whole cake by myself in a weekend (which was crazy!) It was just too good!
