Food: Chai Infused Carrot Cake

I love carrot cake, and it is probably the only one I won’t pass up on if I were anywhere in the world offering the option. So a carrot cake recipe is always in order, and this chai infused one is one I am trying on Saturday:

For the cake:

  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tbsp of Assam tea
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of ghee, melted
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of flour (310g)
  • 3 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 7 – 8 turns of fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp of cardamom
  • 1 1/2 tsp of ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups of fresh shredded carrots, about 2 large carrots

For the frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 8oz of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
