*Each chia egg is 1 Tbsp ground chia seed + 3 Tbsp water.  I grind my own chia seeds using a coffee grinder.

**It is important to let the cake cool in the baking dish to room temperature before removing it from the pan.  This allows the cake to fully set.  Even better, let the cake cool overnight in the fridge for a perfectly even cut.

***Frosting is optional.  I frosted this cake with coconut cream from a can of full fat coconut milk.
