Chai Bread...still a work in progress

This post is quick quick quick like a bunny. Sorry, work is so amazingly craptastic right now. If you've been reading this blog for a while you know March, July and October suck balls in my business so I've been burning the midnight oil and not much else. I did find the time late the other night when CB was at the Red Sox game to make this bread, which I was super psyched about when I found the recipe, but honestly was a real disappointment. Maybe it's because it's been forever and a day since I've baked anything non-vegan, but this bread, I thought, was a real stinker. So I'm going to veganize the recipe and try it again next week hopefully with better results. If you want to try your hand at this recipe even though I've already said it sucks. Here it is.

Oh, and also, I have to have dinner with my mother-in-law on Sunday night. Please say a special prayer for me that I get through that.

Have a good weekend y'all. See you on the flip side.

I second the deliciousness of this concept... just thinking about it makes my stomach growl. This may be completely unhelpful, but I know that Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World has a chai cupcake recipe. Seems like there should be some way to make a cupcake recipe into a quickbread recipe...

I wonder if there's any merit to the idea of "blooming" the spices (maybe there should be some ginger and a tinch of black pepper (if you're going for something more savory... chai tea recipes often include black pepper) included?) with some heat/oil before adding them to the batter, to intensify the flavors a bit.

Hmmmm... this sounds like a delicious project... : )

Great blog, btw. I stumbled on it awhile back and love it.

When you have time, could you please explain why those particular 3 months suck so bad? Just curious.
