Chai-Cake with cinnamon streusel

2 tbsp chia seeds or flax seeds (grounded)
3/4 cup oat milk or any other plans based milk
2-3 earl grey tea bags
1/2 stick vegan butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 ½ cups spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Streusel
1/2 cup spelt flour
3 tbsp vegan butter cold
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Line 15 wells of muffin tins with paper liners or a 20 cm baking tin.
Place the flax and water in a bowl, stir and set aside to thicken.
In a small saucepan, bring the milk to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat, then immediately remove the pan from the heat don´t allow the milk to boil. Add the Earl Grey tea bags and chill for about 10 minutes, then discard the tea bags.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and then set aside. In a second bowl beat sugar and butter until fluffy and creamy. Add flax egg, milk and vinegar. The mixture will separate but that´s okay.
Add the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Let the batter sit for few minutes.

Make the Streusel: In a small bowl, combine the streusel ingredients. Mix together with your hands until a crumbly mixture forms. Pour the batter in the tin and sprinkle the streusel topping over the batter, dividing it evenly. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
