As a child, sweet bread made from banana, zucchini, or pumpkin was a welcome treat. It wasn't something that was made often, which perhaps made it more special when it was. I hope you enjoy this recipe for Chai Pumpkin Bread with Chai Cream Cheese Frosting, and make some memories of your own making, and sharing, this little taste of sweetness.



  • ⅔ c Dona Chai Original Chai Tea Concentrate
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter (12 T)
  • 3 T maple syrup

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c pumpkin purée½
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 2 c flour
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
