Get:

0.25 cup, Apple Sauce
1 tsp, Baking Powder
2 cup, Pure Pumpkin
1 Tablespoons, Salt
30 g, protein powder ANY (I used myprotein Vanilla)
3 large, Egg
1 Tablespoon, Vanilla

Do:
#1. Crack eggs and separate white from yolk.
#2. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks (photo 1)
#3. Mix the yolks and protein powder until well combined.
#4. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until its all combined. Taste for sweetness. To my taste I did not need to add any sweetened because the protein powder was sweet enough. (photo 2)
#5. In 3 parts fold in the beaten egg whites into the mix. Just until combined. Dont over mix. I used a spatula for this (photo 3)
#6. Line a baking pan or spring pan (I used the same one I am using for my cheesecake (6x3) and it was almost to the top before baking, and fill with the mix. Top with some shaved chocolate and berries if you like, like I did.
#7. Bake at 375F for 45 - 50 minutes. In my Breville Smart Pro it was 45 minutes. Do the tooth pick test to be sure.
#8. Allow to cool and enjoy a slice or the whole thing.

    Thanks for sharing this one. I do like your cheesecake one, but am finding dairy in general not 'liking' me very much. This one sounds very interesting!! I'll have to get some apple sauce...

    Reduced to 1.25 cup pumpkin and used 1 whole egg and two egg whites instead (just what I had on hand today).

    Also, did you actually mean '1 tbsp. of salt'? I only used .5 tsp. but think 1 tsp would have been better, as the protein powder I used (Promasil Vanilla) is really sweet - needed some balancing out I think...

    It tastes good - not really 'cake' like - more like a set pudding-type of thing...might play around with almond flour, coconut flour, spices (cinnamon, etc.,) etc., in next one...but of course up goes the calories. My version was only 400 calories.

    Maybe I might use a good amount of dark cocoa powder to help 'thicken' it out for less calories than almond flour, etc.,

    thanks again:)

    Why is the recipe 465 calories? Where are the cals coming from?
  • LyndaBSSLyndaBSS Posts: 5,912Member, Premium Member Posts: 5,912Member, Premium Member
    That's a huge chunk of calories for me. I'd have to swap out a meal for one slice. It looks really yummy, though. I'll just gaze at it longingly. 😦

    I believe the 465 calories are for the entire cake, so a quarter or half might be doable for a snack or dessert?

    Mine was around 400 calories...
    Promasil protein powder - 110 calories/ Two Egg Whites - 30 calories/ One whole egg - 72 calories/ one TBSP. vanilla - 37/ Pumpkin Puree - 125 calories / Baking Powder - 2/ Apple sauce - 13 calories

    but I adjusted mine to yield less calories -

    Fyi- since you are using pumpkin and or applesauce you can use baking soda instead of baking powder and that could create a greater rise.

    Thank you! I had no idea about this! But so many pumpkin cake recipes I've ever seen include both - but you're thinking I don't need B.Powder too?

    Baking powder is baking soda with an acid. I am not an expert on this but my sister is, there are certain situations you do use both... when you have a fruit such as apple you would use baking soda and this will allow more (for lack of the right backing term) carbonation or air bubbles and bring a rise.

    Its whole the whole cake, hence the serving says one (1).

    Glad you tried it. If you add flour it will be more cake like. You are right, this is more of a soft cake like texture wise. I think I meant to say a one tsp NOT tbsp.

    Also works in an 8*8 baking dish.
