  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 3 teaspoons Chia seed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • The juice of 1 lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat sugar and sour cream for 3 minutes, then add vanilla extract eggs 1 by 1 and oil, mix for 3 more minutes.
  • Sift together, flour, baking powder and salt, then add lemon zest and the chia seed.
  • To the sugar mixture, add lemon juice and the dry ingredients, mix just to combine.
  • I use mini loaf bread mold to make it pretty and tiny, but you can use a normal size one, spray some oil and pour the mixture in the mold.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and cook in the center.
  • This recipe makes 4 mini loaf breads or 1 normal size.
