Protein cake with fresh berries and peanut butter frosting

Protein cake with fresh berries and peanut butter frosting

This protein cake recipe is perfect to share with family and friends: A fluffy, berry-like dough with a subtle hint of vanilla and peanut butter frosting promises a great taste experience. However, what you don't see at first glance is that the cake contains at least 15 g of protein per portion and is based on purely plant-based ingredients. A good idea for a healthy birthday cake or protein-rich treat for coffee time. 🍰💕

Many cake recipes can easily be enriched with protein - the best way to do this is with protein powder such as our Vegan Protein, which gives the cake additional low-calorie sweetness and flavour from fine vanilla. What makes this protein powder even more different from others is that it is made from a plant-based combination of germinated protein sources with a high-quality amino acid profile that is particularly well absorbed by the body. The other selected, purely plant-based ingredients make the cake altogether compatible for everyone you share the treat with.

First, preheat the oven to 180 °C top and bottom heat and line a baking tin with baking paper.

Then put the flour, protein powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix the ingredients together for the first time. Next, add the oil, water and cider vinegar and mix until you have a smooth batter. Finally, add the raspberries, which can now be mixed with the batter.

Now pour the batter into the baking tin and bake the protein cake for 30-40 minutes.

In the meantime, you can prepare the frosting: Put the Vegan Protein Powder with the maple syrup, peanut butter and oat milk in a bowl and mix well.

When the cake has cooled completely, spread the frosting and decorate with fresh fruit if you like. We found peaches to be a great match here. 😊
