Pumpkin Chai Cupcakes!

It’s fall again (obviously)… but not so obviously, that means Pumpkin Chai is back at David’s Tea! As some of you may recall from last year, I blogged about how amazing this tea is (especially as a latte).

This year, I received a David’s Tea newsletter with a Pumpkin Chai Cupcake recipe. It’s rare I ever have enough of anything to bake a recipe like this, so I figured since I did this time around it was a sign that these cupcakes were meant to be made!

And they were great! I will admit to leaving the cloves out (not a fan), and switching buttercream icing for chocolate (which ended up working out quite well with the pumpkin flavour). I thought the recipe was great! I wasn’t sure how much flavour from the tea would come out, and thought the cupcakes might taste more like vanilla. But, the flavour was quite strong, and I was pleasantly surprised on how well steeping Pumpkin Chai worked for these cupcakes. I got 10 cupcakes out of the recipe – but if you’re a fan of huge cupcakes you may fine you get less.

A big fan of fall, or trying to learn how to make the most of fall (like I do)? Try out this recipe to enjoy the fantastic flavours of fall! (Whoa, alliteration, that happened!)
