Pistachio-Coconut Chai Coffee Cake Recipe

Pistachio-Coconut Chai Coffee Cake Recipe

Coffee cake is one of those recipes that I kinda make without hesitation because it basically works in any situation. House guests? Coffee cake. Hostess gift? Coffee cake. Road trip? Coffee cake, coffee cake, coffee cake.

And, when I’m traveling, I don’t always have the coffee or tea that’s supposed to go with the cake so here I kinda combined it all. 

This Pistachio-Coconut Chai Coffee Cake recipe is not a newbie for me – in fact, you can find it in my cookbook, but, I wanted to jazz it up so I folded in some pistachios, made it with coconut oil, and, well, ate too much for breakfast, and mid-morning snack, and, you get the idea.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
