Chocolate Chai Latte Cake

Cake

1 box devil’s food cake mix

1/4 cup chai latte-flavored international instant coffee mix (from 9.7-oz container)

1 1/3 cups water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3 eggs

1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Frosting

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 Tbsp butter or margarine, softened

3 Tbsp milk

1 Tbsp chai latte-flavored international instant coffee mix (from 9.7-oz container)

Ground cinnamon, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (or 325 degrees F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom and sides of 13×9-inch pan with baking spray with flour.

2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, 1/4 cup dry chai latte mix, the water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into pan.

3. Bake 29 to 39 minutes or until center of cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely, about 1 hour. (A crack may appear in top of cake, but frosting will cover it.)

4. In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter until smooth; set aside. In small microwavable bowl, microwave milk on High 10 to 15 seconds until very warm. Stir in 1 tablespoon dry chai latte mix until dissolved; stir into powdered sugar mixture until smooth and spreadable. Spread over cake. Just before serving, dust with cinnamon.
