Vegan Dessert: Choco-Chai Coffee Cake

Unbelievably, I've made it to this point in life without ever having had Chai (tea). I bought the box of Tazo Organic Chai for this recipe, and because my daughter had some and said it was, "delicious!" I took the conservative route and used 4 tea bags not knowing how spicy it would be. After having tasted the moist cake and gooey topping, I plan on increasing the number of bags considerably the next time.

The recipe is from my favorite baking book, The 100 Best Vegan Recipes by Kris Holechek.

Tomorrow, my first cup of Chai, to which I've been told to add milk (soy milk) and sugar (organic)!
