Chai Latte Cupcakes With Nutella Icing
This chai latte cupcake recipe is absolutely delicious! I know what you’re thinking, “I want one now!” It’s the same thing that I was thinking when I decided to make these. I’ve always been one to enjoy a yummy hot cup a chai tea during the Fall and Winter seasons, but let me tell you something…you can enjoy these all year long. The Chai spice isn’t overwhelming at all…they’re polite delicious across the palette and super moist! The Chai Latte Cupcakes definitely pair up well with a Nutella Fudge Cream Cheese icing. Enjoy my recipe, and tell me what you think!
I was completely inspired to make these mini cupcakes from the wonderful people of Belgoods! They gave me a chance to do a product review for silicone mini muffin tray.
I really enjoyed using this. First, it’s in one of my top favorite colors: orange! Second, I’ve always wanted to bake using silicon bakeware to see if it baked differently or not. I was happy to find out that I think I like baking using silicon bakeware than I do conventional metal pans. The biggest lesson I learned is, whether your bakeware is made of silicon or not, you still have to use a non-stick spray for product to be released from the tray. It will still stick to the sides and bottom if you don’t use a spray release of some form. Besides that, I was super happy with the outcome!

- 1 Cup of Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Cup of Butter Flavored Crisco
- 2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil

- Once mixture is creamy and fluffy, add in your large egg until well mixed.

- Slowly add in flour and milk. Alternate by adding a little bit of both in the bowl.
