These baked Chai Spice Donuts are a fun and delicious breakfast choice. Adding tea to the donut batter and glaze gives these donuts a unique and delicious flavor.
Growing up my mom had this little china tea set from my grandmother that we were only allowed to use when we were not feeling well. It was the only time those cups came out. For some reason drinking tea from those little cups always made me feel so much better.
My mom has passed that china tea set on to me now. I love to create special moments for my kids using the tea set from my childhood. Every once in a while I will get the tea set out and bake them some treats for a surprise tea party. By only doing it every so often, it keeps it special. They love to have the little cups of tea with lots of cream and sugar.
The first thing you need to do when baking with tea is to actually steep your tea. You start by heating milk and adding extra tea bags for a stronger flavor. The aroma coming from the tea cup filled my entire kitchen. I couldn't wait to infuse that amazing scent into my baked donuts.
I made my donut batter using some of the cooled tea. I also used Greek yogurt to create a softer texture in the donuts.
By adding more tea to the glaze, it increased the tea flavor even more in these donuts. Cinnamon sugar on the top was the perfect touch for the glaze.
When our kids got home from school and realized they were having donuts and a tea party, they were so excited to invite all their "friends". I love the excitement and happiness that these little tea parties give them.
My hope is that they will remember these fun moments and be able to continue sharing these moments with their children when they are older.
I cannot wait to pass on the family tea set to my daughter after she is married. But I don't want that happening any time soon, so for now I will enjoy my little ones and their cute stuffed animal parties!
