    AlainaF's Note:

    Came up with this recipe after seeing the ingredients from the Ready, Set, Cook #18, and knew I had to use tea, ginger, and allspice in a chocolate cake, and since chai tea is my favorite, I went with it! It came out amazing! It came out amazing! The longer you let the chai tea concentrate steep, the better and stronger the flavor. I like it strong, so I let it steep for an hour, but if you aren’t a big chai drinker, I’d stick to a 30 minute steep. Either way the cake is impressive and delicious! My husband and mother devoured it! Wish there was more!
