Chia Coconut Squares


An attempt to make an egg less cake. I was making solkadhi again, and had left over coconut after extracting the milk. I wanted to make cake, but was out of eggs. This recipe came out,I don’t know how, just like that. And it came out good.
I did read somewhere that chia seeds are a good substitute to eggs. And here is how I used it.

The Process

Step 1 Get all the dry ingredients together

Take a big bowl and add the flour[ or better sift it in]. Now add sugar, ground chia seeds, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix everything well.

Step 2 Add rest of the ingredients

But before that, preheat your oven to 220 C. OK, now add in the butter, coconut and milk. Keep mixing with a spatula or whisker, until you attain a good creamy mixture. Sprinkle gently a pinch of cardamom powder, nutmeg and a few drops of French vanilla essence. Mix well again.

Step 3 The baking

Now grease a baking utensil of your choice with olive oil or butter and pour in the mixture. Bake it for 20 – 25 minutes.

Step 4 EAT!!

Al right, nothing much more to do. Take it out of the oven, and let it cool for 15 minutes. Invert the utensil onto a serving dish and well, you know, SERVE!!!
