Author Notes

A riff on a pound cake, this cake is perfect for an afternoon snack, a casual dessert, or a bedtime treat. The cake is like a warm cup of Chai, and the Vanilla Cream Frosting brings the Latte touch. As is true of all pound cakes, this is great on the first day, and even better on day two. —Rachel Basye
