Its a weekend at home for the first time in ages so I have done a little baking having rediscovered my love for chai as usual doing festival season, I fancied making some with green tea and cardamom they taste delicious sweet delicate and spicy like a cup of chai in a cake. Also very pretty with flecks of green through them
Sadly being bite size with delicious crispy outside they slip down a little to easily so I might have to get in some serious walking this weekend .
