Bake up these Chai Spiced Donuts in no time with this easy recipe. These are the perfect weekend breakfast!
There is something so perfect about a lazy Saturday morning with a cup of coffee in hand, the fireplace going (even if it’s the fake kind!), and a perfectly baked Chai Spiced Donut. What makes these so special? The fact that you don’t need to fry these bad boys up. The fact that the warm spices scream fall and winter. And last but not least…the fact that you’re eating a donut on a lazy Saturday morning!
I try and make something special for breakfast on the weekends. It’s the only two days during the entire week that we are all three together for breakfast. See the reason breakfast needs to be a little special? I’m not talking the full blown breakfast of eggs, bacon, tost, etc., although that is a pretty special breakfast…we usually reserve that for brinner. 🙂 We do it at least once every two weeks.
I’m talking special like French toast casserole, monkey bread, muffins, and these Chai Spiced Donuts. I made some apple cider donuts years ago, and ever since then I’ve been meaning to get back in the kitchen and go with my other favorite fall/winter beverage…chai tea. I’m not a hot tea fan, but there is something about the warm spices in chai tea that I love.
Year ago when I worked at The Coffee Beanery in the mall…I’m talking almost 20 years ago, there was a chai tea that when brewed with milk….oh man it was perfection. These donuts boast those same warm flavors. It takes me back to simpler times, for sure.
Love chai as much as me? I made a Chai Spiced Hot Cocoa last year that was super popular!
