Lemon and Chia Seeds Loaf Cake Recipe

I admit I have a special love for loaf cake and all breakfast cakes in general. But yes, especially I have a preference for sweet and savory loaf cakes.

Loaf cake, what I love of this simple preparation

Probably I love them because these are daily family recipes and often quite easy-to-make. Recipes you can cook every day because, I’m sure, always you have the ingredients in your own kitchen. Basically you need flour, eggs, butter, milk. Then you need one ingredient to confer a special taste. It can be any kind of leftover, fruit, cheese, and so on.

Cooking a good dish it isn’t only a question of long and complicated recipes or rare and precious ingredients. More often is a soul and heart question. I love cooking for people I love. Also when I make easy recipes and dishes, then family and friends think I’m awesome. Well, nothing it’s better to be the plum cake rockstar for my family

People! If you’re looking for a honestly good lemon loaf, I suggest to prepare this easy, moist and fragrant cake. It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch, merenda.
