COOKING WITH TEA RECIPE: Masala Chai Spiced Donuts

Masala Chai Spiced DonutsOlivia May at From the Kitchen of Olivia has done it again!  She has created an amazing tea-inspired recipe for Arbor Teas that is perfect for the fall season – Masala Chai Spiced Donuts!

Olivia writes: “Choose your own adventure! This recipe is filled with decisions… Fried or Baked? Caffeinated or Not? Doughnuts or Donuts? When the weather turns cool, I like to make donuts. At least that’s how I’ve settled on spelling it. As for fried or baked? Well, that’s a texture preference. Personally, I like the cake-like quality of a fried cider donut more so than the doughy-ness of a glazed. The caffeine question is a bit more mood related. Arbor Teas’ organic Masala Chai Black Tea has more prominent notes of spicy cardamom and a kick from black pepper, while the naturally caffeine free Organic Masala Chai Rooibos has a flavor profile distinct with warm ginger. Indecisive? The Organic Decaf Masala Chai Black Tea is yet another option that probably doesn’t help break any ties. Here are two very different and customizable approaches to making chai-spiced donuts. Which do you prefer? Hope you enjoy this Cooking with Tea recipe From the Kitchen of Olivia! ”

    Oh my gosh, Masala Spiced Doughnuts! These sound sooooo good. Chai has got to be one of the best teas to use as an ingredient, ever.

    Have you tried matcha green tea doughnuts? Or how about a citrus-jasmine variety? There are so many possibilities.
