I’m not gonna lie, before I tried pumpkin spice, Chai was my ultimate favorite flavor during this time of year. Yes, I’ve made countless pumpkin-spiced desserts, so I wanted to switch it up a bit. I wanted to use something that still used spice and still gave us that warm fall feeling – Chai was the answer to that. But, if you would prefer using pumpkin spice, go for it! No pressure here.
Preheat the oven. Depending on the color of your pan, the temperatures will differ.
Liberally grease the bundt pan with spray oil, and make sure you get in every crevice!
Combine the dairy-free milk, vinegar, and vanilla extract. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the milk to curdle.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, chai masala spice, and potato starch, and set aside.
Once your milk has curled, add in the oil and pumpkin puree and add in the brown and granulated sugar. Whisk until the sugars have dissolved.
Add in ⅓ of the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and using the electric hand mixer, mix on low until it comes together. Continue adding the remaining wet ingredients in batches, and mix until you have a smooth batter.
Pour the batter into the greased bundt pan and carefully tap the bottom of the pan on a work surface. This will ensure that the batter settles into the crevices of the pan.
Run a chopstick, skewer, or butter knife through the cake batter after you’ve poured it into the pan to release any air bubbles and to help further settle the cake into the pan.
Bake for about 50-55 minutes. The cake will be done when an inserted toothpick or skewer comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes.
Carefully turn out the cake onto a wire cooling rack, and allow it to cool completely.
Make your royal icing and pour it over the completely cooled cake, and serve!
