Chia Chai Cake
by Collette White | June 24, 2013
Good Morning, I hope this finds you well. I am here today to share with you a lovely cake using two of my favourite ingredients … chia and chai … I hope you enjoy as much as we do!
2 chai tea bags
½ cup boiling water
3 eggs – separated
1/3 cup rapadura (or brown sugar)
zest of ½ a large orange
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup rice flour
2 heaped tblspns chia seeds
Pre heat oven to 180c and line a lamington tray with baking paper.
Place the chai tea bags and water into a mug and allow to sit for 10 minutes. After this 10 minutes remove bags and discard them. Set tea aside.
In a large bowl place the egg yolks, rapadura and orange zest and whisk.
Add almond meal, sifted rice flour, chia seeds and chai tea. Whisk well (I use a hand whisk – not electric).
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold through egg whites into cake mixture.
Pour into the prepared lamington tray and bake for 15 minutes.
This is not a sweet cake. Options for a sweeter cake is more sugar, or icing it once it has cooled. I liked it as is it is though and next time I am going to try adding some cacao too!
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
