August 2020 Dish of the Month Recipe

Chia Seed Cake

Ingredients: • 100g Demerara Sugar • 1 Tbsp of Honey • 170g Salted Butter • 3 Medium Eggs • 225g Self-Raising Flour • 1 Tsp Baking Powder • 2 Tsp of Lemon Juice • 3 Tbsp of Chia Seeds

Method: 1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C Fan/Gas 4/180°C. Oil a 20cm round cake tin and cut a piece of baking parchment out for the base. To aid with the mixture when it’s rising, either sprinkle flour or sugar around the oiled sides. 2. Weigh out the sugar, honey and butter into a mixing bowl. Mix them together until it’s as light and fluffy as possible with an electric mixer. 3. Add in the eggs and lemon juice, then mix again. 4. Your mixture should be nice and fluffy now with plenty of air in it, so there’s no need for anymore heavy mixing. Add in the flour, baking powder and chia seeds, then gently blend everything together, making sure everything is well mixed whilst trying to retain as much air as possible. 5. Pour this into the cake tin and level out the mixture. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes before checking. Poke a knife into the center and check if it comes out clean. If not, keep checking every 5 minutes until it does.
