Chai Loaves

One of my favorite things in cold, snowy weather is chai.  It’s so comforting and warm and delicious!  I only started drinking coffee in recent years, so a chai was my coffee shop go-to for the longest time.  When we were first relocating to Boston and did not yet have internet in the apartment, I spent a lot of time at a local coffee shop in my neighborhood drinking chai after chai while working.  That coffee shop has the best chai: it’s so light and foamy and delicious!

 

I wanted to create a chai dessert that resembled those traits: light, fluffy, and delicious!  I think this recipe achieves exactly that.  I made these as mini loaves in a loaf pan, but you could also make one large loaf with this recipe.  I am a huge fan of the mini loaf pan as I think mini loaves make perfect gifts, and chai is the perfect flavor for a winter loaf!
