Chai Spiced Pumpkin Bread

21 Nov

I am a big fan of Chai tea lattes and a slice of pumpkin bread on a cool fall day. So, I thought why not put the two flavors together? This pumpkin bread has a subtle chia spice in it along with being super moist and not overly sweet. I know it looks like it has a lot of ingredients in it, but I promise it was super fast to put together. You could make some tonight in a snap and have a great breakfast ready for Thanksgiving morning!

Chai Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Makes two 8.5in loaves


2 bags of Chai Tea
2/3 cup boiling water
1 can (15oz) Pumpkin Puree
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon clove
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


  • Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and greasing two 8.5 in loaf pans.
  • Steep two chai tea bags in 2/3 cup hot water for about 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl mix together pumpkin, eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla and chai tea until fully incorporated.
  • In another bowl whisk the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.
  • Slowly mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, about a cup at a time, until they are just mixed together.
  • Seperate the batter in to the two pans and bake for 55 minutes.

    This sounds amazing! What brand of Chai do you use?

      I used the Tazo full-leaf Chai. I like it’s balance of spice and it’s a bit peppery!
