Chai Spiced Coffee Crumb Cake

Submitted by: DEARSWEETBRIAR

Introduction

Cinnamon is the standard spice for topping a crumb coffee cake. This coffee cake keeps the crumb topping and spices it up a little more by using some of the same flavors that are found in chai, including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and allspice. These spices really help to make the coffee cake memorable - and they also make you want to come back for a second slice. Cinnamon is the standard spice for topping a crumb coffee cake.
