This bread is irresistible! A friend gets mad when I make it because I give her a loaf and she can't help but eat the whole thing! —Lisa Christensen, Poplar Grove, Illinois

"I happened to see this recipe and loved the idea of chocolate and chai together. I didn't have all the ingredients at hand, but I did have a boxed chocolate cake mix (the kind with pudding in the mix) and decided to use this instead. I don't know what the homemade one would taste like, but this was fabulous. I had instant chai latte mix and added this to the boxed mix and it came out great. Also did the same thing to a container of vanilla cream frosting, added the instant chai tea mix and used an electric hand mixer to bring it to a fluffy consistency. Next time, I'll make sure I have the ingredients to make it like the original recipe calls for."

"Made three excellent mini loaves. Frosting is amazing. Have to make sure the latte mix dissolves fully in the frosting or it can be gritty. I used Oregon Chai Tea Latte mix which came in individual servings and one packet was perfect for one batch."

"I make one regular loaf. My family loved it.

I found the chai tea at our local market, but it was alot cheaper at Trader Joes ($2.99 in So. Ca.). I will use the frosting on many more cakes, cupcakes etc. It was wonderful!"

"If you have trouble finding the chai tea latte mix, you could make the mix yourself with the Spiced Chai Mix recipe from Taste of Home.

"Very Delicious. I also thought it was more cake-like than bread so I made 24 cupcakes instead. I suggest doubling the frosting recipe if you do cupcakes. They turned out great and were a hit at work. I will be making these again for sure."

"Definitely more of a cake than bread. I did not think it had enough chai flavor. As chocolate cake it had great flavor and nice crumb. I will keep looking for a bread recipe. Did make 4 mini-loaves."

"Made 28 for Christmas gifts for employees, teachers and friends. Great recipe because it makes 3 mini loaves. Taste is outstanding and a bit exotic due to the chai tea mix. LOVE IT"
