Great recipe. What I did was reduced the baking powder to a teaspoon, added more banana, and upped the chai. I took the advice of some of the other posters and when I added the chai, I warmed my pre-packaged chai and added three chai teabags to strengthen the chai taste. Interesting recipe, but surprizingly wonderful. I recieved many complements on this recipe.



I made this for some of my friends at work, and it was a big hit. I raised it to a 1/2 cup of chai (the powdered kind) which made it very moist and lovely. Also, the cream cheese made little cream cheese blobby pockets randomly, which were so delicious! Served with strawberries and coffee, this was really fantastic, so easy and rewarding.



Great recipe. After I made it Talia's way I substituted Fat Free Cream Cheese and a Fat Free Egg Substitute. I also halfed the flour with whole wheat. Few people believe me when I tell them the recipe is nearly fat free (about 1.5 grams in the loaf from the bananas).
