Vanilla Chai Latte Cheesecake: Multi layer creamy cheesecake with a vanilla cookie crust a vanilla bean bottom layer, chia spice layer in the middle, and a chocolate espresso center.
I’m teaming up with Rodelle to help you get ready for fall baking. This is a sponsored post but anyone who reads this blog knows I have used their products long before I ever started working with them.
To help get you in the mood we will be doing a giveaway of the Rodelle products needed to make this cheesecake.
If you are a avid baker you surely have noticed the price of vanilla going up. This is due to a lot of factors, mostly due to mother nature not playing nice.
I’ll tell you how to enter at the end of the post.
I decide to make a cheesecake because last week when I made the Fireball Sour Cream Topped Brown Sugar Cheesecake people went crazy for it.
It reminded me how much people like cheesecake and how I should be making more of them.
While pumpkin and apple are usually all the rage during fall, I think chai spice is a flavor that isn’t featured often.
Which is a shame because it’s so warm and comforting.
I love me a Vanilla Chai Latte and set out to make a cheesecake with those flavors.
This is a bullseye style cheesecake in which the different batters are layered on top of one another in the center.
It’s a little hard to tell but if look closely you will see a Vanilla Bean Layer, a light brown Chai spice layer, and finally a Espresso Chocolate Layer.
What it makes for is a great cheesecake.
My husband isn’t even that big of a cheesecake guy and absolutely loved this and you will too.
So about the giveaway.
As many of you know I have been a Rodelle Brand Ambassador for many, many years now.
All of their products are superior in my opinion and are my absolute favorite to bake with.
I know many of you have written to tell me that you buy Rodelle now because of me and that makes me happy to hear.
I’m happy to hear you love it as much as I do.
So to win some Rodelle Vanilla Beans, Rodelle Vanilla Extract, and some Rodelle Baking Cocoa all you need to do is to leave a comment letting me know what your favorite thing to bake in fall is?
The winner will be drawn using a random number generator on Friday, October 12th at 2pm pst.

With the mixer running, add the sugar.

Stop the mixer and scrape down the bowl.

Take out 1/3 of the batter and place into a bowl.
Add the chai spice to that bowl and mix until fully incorporated.

Then pour the chai spice batter on top of that.
