Pumpkin Protein Cake

Pumpkin Protein Cake

I needed to use my leftover canned pumpkin before it went bad. Hence Pumpkin Protein Cake! I love how this unplanned recipe ended up becoming a delicious masterpiece!

You'll never guess what I used for the stem.

Cake Recipe:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the following ingredients into a bowl and mix:

  • 1/4 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed Meal
  • 3/4 Scoop BSN Syntha-6 Whey (Cinnamon Bun)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Egg Whites
  • 1 cup pumpkin (this makes the cake moist… if you omit this, it will be DRY).
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla)
  • add last:
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Place this mixture (which may seem runny, but that’s ok because you don’t want a dry cake) into greased 6" x 2&3/4" springform pan

Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes (use a toothpick to verify the cake is cooked).

Cool before removing the springform casing. Apply icing after the cake has cooled.

Icing Recipe:

Add the following to a bowl and mix to create the icing:

  • 1/4 cup (4 TBSP) pumpkin (this makes the icing orange!)
  • 3/4 scoop BSN Syntha-6 Whey (Cinnamon Bun)
  • 1 TBSP Walden Farms Calorie Free Pancake Syrup. You can use vanilla extract or vanilla stevia if you prefer to sweeten the icing.

Edible Leaves & Stem Decoration:

  • I used 2 spinach leaves to decorate the top of the cake
  • 1 used 1/2 of a Chocolate Peanut Butter Quest Bar. I placed it in the microwave for 10 seconds so I could roll it into a cylinder shape like a stem. Then I pushed it into the centre of the cake.
