Chai Tea Bread

A while back I decided I would make January bread-making month as a way to fight the post-holiday doldrums. But with all the snow, January has been full of outside activities and there has been no bread-making... until yesterday. I finally made the one recipe I really wanted to try: Chai Tea Bread

It was delicious.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup prepared black tea, cooled
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 3-6 tsp prepared black tea
  • cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Cream sugar and butter. Beat in eggs, tea, milk, vanilla and spices. Add baking powder, salt, and flour. Pour into greased bread pan. Bake for 50 minutes. Mix together glaze ingredients, drizzle over bread.
