If you often get caught with little time for baking and you like tangy sweet and coconut flavour you’ll love this coconut, lemon, yogurt and chia seed cake. I used chemical free lemon from my own garden.

Poppy seeds can be substitute to chia seeds.

*Please note; for this recipe I used my kitchen bench top scale to weighing all the ingredients to this recipe. Because after I put on green sealing ring fitted into the my thermomix TM 31 lid and it’s not reading correctly weighing.
