after a few scorching weeks here in holland, the temperature has finally dropped. the happy socks and heating are on and i'm craving EVERY kind of soup. the leaves are falling, the mornings are darker and we're slowly working our way through jamie's comfort food recipes. autumn in holland is just magical. donna hay's chai bundt recipe has been on my to do list for a while and i've been eager to christen my new nordicware pan so i decided a chilly sunday was the perfect time to play. to accompany the cake, i whipped up a large saucepan of chai tea concentrate and oh boy, they're a match made in heaven. perfectly spicy and sweetened to taste with honey and milk. both recipes can be found below. on another note, it's been way too long since i was last here. it's time to get back on the blogging bandwagon and share some of my recent bakes. i've been so inspired by donna hay's new book basics to brilliance and Poh Ling Yeow's series poh & co that has finally aired on 24 kitchen here in holland. expect a few familiar bakes in the near future. have a great week lovelies!
