Happy Sunday!

It was another busy weekend for me. Yesterday was Lunar New Year so I was with family celebrating and eating lots of food. But honestly, what’s new? Lol. We’re always finding reasons to celebrate. And well, to eat. Lol.

In the mean time, let’s talk about this chai spiced apple loaf cake.

It’s no secret that I have a love for loaf cake. They’re so easy to make, they’re easy to customize, and since they’re baked in a loaf pan, it’s easy to clean up. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m not a fan of cleaning up muffin tins. It has to be really worth it for me to bake in a muffin tin, like mochi muffins worth it. Because there’s so many wells to clean after the baking is done.

I’ve been wanting to make a chai spiced loaf cake for awhile now. And chai spiced loaf cake with sweet and tart diced apples sounded like the perfect combination of flavors to me. I could just picture myself waking up in the morning and packing a slice of this loaf cake for breakfast. Pair it with hot tea or a mug of freshly brewed coffee, and you are set for breakfast.

This chai spiced apple loaf cake has swirls of chai spiced sugar in its center. Each bite is filled with the taste of sweet and tart apples and warm notes of chai spices. This loaf cake is moist, flavorful, and so delicious.

I hope you’ll like it as much as I do.
