Chai Spiced Fruit n Seed Loaf



Who doesn’t like a cup of hot Masala Chai..
Ever thought of adding that hot delight into your cake? If not, do try baking with tea.
I bet you will fall in love with the flavorsJ
And yes, you can very well have this healthy delight with all fruity goodness as your breakfast


Chai Spiced Fruit n Seed Loaf
Ingredients
150 ml of Strong Black Tea
170 gms of Dried fruits + Seeds of your choice
50 gms butter
50 gms Brown Sugar
½ tspn Baking Soda
½ tspn Baking powder
½ tspn Mixed Spice powder
110 gms Whole Wheat Flour
1 egg
Pinch of salt


Directions
Brew a strong tea of your choice with 150 ml water . I used 2 Masala Chai tea bags
In the same pan add the butter,sugar, dried fruits, baking soda , salt and bring to Boil.
[For dry fruits I used a mix of Raisins,  cherries ,apricots , cranberries and Lemon rind]
In another bowl ,sift the flour , mixed spice powder and baking powder.
Stir in the seeds- I used Sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and Flax seeds
Add the wet ingredients and egg and mix until just combined.
Spoon the mix to a loaf pan and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree for 40 minutes
I recommend you keep it in refrigerator overnight and have it the following day as the flavor enhances a lot the next day
