Chia Lemon Cake

It's perfectly moist and sweet with the best possible spongy texture so it's really doesn't require any frosting or topping. This makes a lovely chia lemon cake extremely easy to make – all you have to do is combine a few basic ingredients in a bowl, add enough lemon juice and lemon zest for its unique aroma and then finish everything with just a right amount of chia seeds – and your cake is good to go. Sometimes we like to sprinkle the cake with some powdered sugar or desiccated coconut just before serving. Enjoy!
