    2. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, ground almonds and baking powder.
    4. Beat the eggs into the butter mix one at a time, adding a spoonful of the flour mix after every egg. Now add the rest of the flour mix.
    5. In a small cup put the chai latte powder with the water and mix well. Add this chai latte to the cake mix with the milk.
    6. Now whisk it all together for a minute.
    7. Add the hazelnuts and fold them all in.
    8. Pour the mixture into the 2 prepared tins equally.
    9. Bake them for 25-30 minutes or until done.
    10. Leave to cool on a wire rack. Once cool remove them from the tin.

To make the icing

    1. In a large bowl whisk the butter and icing sugar.
    2. Now add the Spiced Chai latte powder and the milk.
    3. Whisk it well till it forms a lovely butter icing. The more you mix it the fluffier it will get.

  1. Place one cake on the serving plate. Put half the icing on top of it and spread it evenly.
  2. Sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts on it.
  3. Now place the other cake on top and spread the remaining icing over it.
  4. Grate some chocolate on top of the cake and serve.
