Masala Chai Cake

With every sip I could taste the delicate whole spices and the warmth they bring, encompasses all my senses. From the first time I tasted Masala chai, I have wondered “how would it taste as a cake?”
So, here it is, a delicately spiced sponge, flavoured with masala chai and then smothered with a rich chocolate frosting,
