Recipe Breakdown

We’ll begin with 2 ½ cups of of milk. We used almond milk but feel free to use any milk or milk alternative you’d like. Soy, rice, hemp, oat, banana, the possibilities are endless! We found that using 2 ½ cups of almond milk gave us the best consistency in the end.

We then added ½ cup of chia seeds into the almond milk. Remember to stir using a whisk! You want to make sure that the chia seeds are fully incorporated into the milk.

After you’ve mixed the milk and chia seeds together, add in ½ teaspoon of Nature’s Flavors Pumpkin Pie concentrate. A little goes a VERY long way! We recommend starting with smaller quantities because you can always add more.

We also added ½ teaspoon of Nature’s Flavors Vanilla Extract to our chia pudding. The same rule applies here, a little goes a long way!

Once you’ve mixed all of your ingredients together, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to set. Allow the chia seeds to soak for 4-5 hours. It’s crucial you use a sweetener with this recipe because the sweetener is what will tie all of these delicious flavors together. We used agave but you can use any sweetener you’d like!

We added cinnamon to our pumpkin pie chia pudding because we love the flavors of autumn. You can use as much as you’d like, it’s really about preference.

Lemon Buttermilk Cake

Ingredients

Lemon Cake

Lemon Frosting

Lemon Buttermilk Cake

Directions

Lemon Cake

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°.
  2. Prepare two baking pans with non-stick cooking spray. We used two different sizes for our baking pans. We used a 9″ baking pan and a 6″ baking pan.
  3. Cut out two circles of parchment paper for the bottom of each baking pan. This will ensure that your cake does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  4. In a bowl, cream the butter and Nature’s Flavors SweetenFX sugar until they reach a fluffy consistency. We recommend beating both ingredients on ‘high’ for about 4 minutes.
  5. In a seperate bowl, combine the baking flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix so that they are all well combined. Set aside
  6. Beat in the eggs, lemon zest, Nature’s Flavors Organic Vanilla Extract, Nature’s Flavors Organic Lemon Extract, oil, lemon juice, and Nature’s Flavors Organic Yellow Food Coloring into the butter/sugar mixture.
  7. Once all of the ingredients have been well combined, scrape the sides of the bowl.
  8. Slowly fold in the buttermilk and flour mixture. Alternate each and make sure you’re mixing on low.
  9. Pour the lemon cake batter evenly onto each baking pan.
  10. Bake both cakes on the middle rack of your oven for 30 minutes. Do not disturb the cakes while they are baking, we want to make sure that the cake does not droop in.
  11. Once, the center of the cakes have puffed up, do the fork test to make sure that there is no batter stuck on the fork.
  12. Allow the cakes to cool.

Lemon Frosting

  1. Beat the softened butter until it reaches a light and fluffy consistency.
  2. Mix in the buttermilk and Nature’s Flavors Organic Lemon Extract. Keep mixing until everything is well combined.
  3. Add in Nature’s Flavors Organic Sugar-free Sugar one cup at a time.

Assembly

  1. Move the larger cake onto your desired cake stand.
  2. Scoop some frosting onto the cake and using a large flat spatula, spread the frosting out evenly.
  3. Place the smaller cake on top of the first cake.
  4. Scoop more frosting onto the cake and repeat the process until your lemon cake looks pretty.
  5. Serve and enjoy this Lemon Buttermilk Cake!
