1 3/4 cups
lowfat cream cheese
brewed chai tea
What I did was reduced the baking powder
to a teaspoon, added more banana, and
upped the chai. I took the advice of
some of the other posters and when I
added the chai, I warmed my pre-packaged chai and added three chai teabags to strengthen the chai taste.
Interesting recipe, but surprizingly
wonderful. I recieved many complements
on this recipe.
I don't know if I did something wrong here, but I followed the recipe exactly and the bread came out bland and VERY dry...I only baked the bread for 50 min. instead of 60 - and still over done.
I made this for some of my friends at work, and it was a big hit. I raised it to a 1/2 cup of chai (the powdered kind) which made it very moist and lovely. Also, the cream cheese made little cream cheese blobby pockets randomly, which were so delicious! Served with strawberries and coffee, this was really fantastic, so easy and rewarding.
Great recipe. After I made it Talia's way I substituted Fat Free Cream Cheese and a Fat Free Egg Substitute. I also halfed the flour with whole wheat. Few people believe me when I tell them the recipe is nearly fat free (about 1.5 grams in the loaf from the bananas).
I am at college and I made this recipe without spending one cent (I got some Chia tea bags for Xmas from a friend) - I am so proud - I never cook! It looks great, but I should have let the tea get stronger - can't really taste it, but I drank a lot of tea while it was cooking!
This bread was great but I could not find the type of chai tea that you brew, only the liquid form - but it still turned out great(just used it in the recipe straight out of the carton.
This is bready rather than moist, but nice nevertheless. The chai must get VERY strong before you can taste it.
I haven't tried baking this bread yet but I wanted to know if you can use the Chai tea that they sell at Costco. Any comments is appreciated!
