Chai Cake for Bread Machines

This bread machine cake is very moist, but not exactly a coffee cake. This bread was an experiment that turned out to be pretty good for breakfast (or as a snack/dessert). I topped my pieces with strawberry cream cheese. But I’m sure you could put any number of things on top to help you satisfy your sweet tooth. Enjoy!
