The chai tea-jaggery combo made these cakes glisten with moisture, giving them a smooth tender texture with subtle coconut undertones. If you need a winter pick-me-up or are just interested in a rich, moist chocolate cake that’s also gluten free, or maybe you’re just wondering what a chocolate cake with chai tea tastes like. Give these a go and they’ll put a smile on your face till summer!
Jaggery intensifies the chocolate taste and gives the cake an exquisite flavour,that’s quite unique so it’s worth seeking out. But if you can’t get hold of it, Demerara/turbinado sugar works well but you may have to melt it down first to avoid a gritty texture in the cake.
I’ve specified assam tea bags in the recipe but I’ve also made it with decaf normal teabags and it tasted just as good —The Curious Baker
