Chai is the actual word for TEA in many countries but when we say CHAI in India, we’re usually referring to Ginger chai, masala chai which is a smooth and calming beverage made of black tea, milk, sugar and fragrant Indian spices. 

The warm and comforting spices of the Chai Mix, mashed bananas and nutty walnuts so well in the cake.

The flavours of chai goes beautifully with banana bread, so I’ve taken one of my favorite banana bread recipes and subtly infused it with warm chai spices like cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

Chai and spices along with banana takes this cake to a aromatic & flavourful level. This Banana bread is perfect for breakfast, evening snacking or just when you feel like it! 

Many of us don’t like to eat overripe banana, so if you have any leftover bananas which you don’t want to eat, you can use them for this recipe. This is a perfect way to use overripe banana, which would come out so moist. This banana chai cake would even tastes great next day!!

This is our Recipe Swap Challenge month, where we choose recipes from our partner's blog, this month my partner. I was paired up with Ashima of My Weekend Kitchen and while seeing her blog, I saw the recipe of winter spiced banana bread, I had a ripe bananas in my fridge and I know that no one will eat it. So I used it and bake this yummy cake! 

I have just minor changes into recipe, as I am a big fan of ginger tea. So I used a mix of ginger powder, fresh and grated nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder. The actual recipe used cloves and green cardamom powder, so you can use it according to your taste-buds.
