Chai Quick Bread

Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger, allspice, vanilla and star anise, a combination of flavors and aromas that are a magical mixture of spice heaven for me!  I have been known to place a pan on the stove filled with water, cinnamon sticks, ginger and cloves just to simmer so I can enjoy the wonderful aroma of these spices! These spices are also part of the reason I  love the fall/winter seasons so much. This is the time of year when these smells and tastes reign dominant in our cooking and baking. A time of culinary bliss for me!

So it would only be logical that I would love Chai Tea. I was first introduced to Chai tea by my little sister(who has wonderful taste!!). I was instantly in love with the wonderful, creamy Chai Tea drink she bought me. I shared that love with my daughters and it is now a family favorite! So I decided to expand my love for Chai into a quick bread. I Googled of course, but couldn’t really find one that used what I wanted, so I decided to make my own. I am quite happy with the results and so are the ones who have tried it in my family. Hope you all enjoy it too! 🙂
