I love cinnamon! From the minute I read this recipe I knew I was going to love it and I was correct.
Chai seems to be the favour at this moment so to have it in a cake was a nice change from your ordinary cake flavours.
RECIPE: The ingredients call for chai tea spice which for the life of me I could not find anywhere. I settled for the chai latte powder which did the job nicely in the custard.The measurements in this recipe were perfect. I topped this tart with whipped cream and then sprinkled cinnamon over the top (this was my version of chai dust). What a great choice!
I would say this tart is for intermediate to advance cooks. The tart (custard) requires attention when on the hotplate and must not be burnt. Constant stirring is your answer!
