When I got organic products from plattershare's , Belly Nirvana associate program of GoIndiaOrganic . the first thought that stuck was to bake.Since I had not done any lemony cake I decided to do a cupcake with chia seeds.These chia seeds look similar to sesame seeds and have a crunch effect when bitten.Rich in omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and many essential nutrients it also helps in weight management.
Coming to this cupcakes there are too simple with just basic ingredients and the addition of this seeds to it gives the cake a nice crunching effect.I made it simple but you can be creative and experimenting other ingredients.
