The Kristen Apple, Vanilla, & Popcorn Protein Cake Recipe
For the cake:
1/2 cup vanilla whey
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup quark (or cottage cheese)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon toffee flavdrops (they’re optional; they do add a nice toffee-umph though which, as always, compliments apples to perfection)
For the filling:
1 sliced and steamed apple
For the fluff:
Two scoops vanilla whey
1/8 cup coconut milk
1 frozen apple
1. Bake the cake at 160 C (320 F) for about 35 minutes inside a cake ring so it’d retain it’s tall and circular shape.
2. Let the cake cool and sit in the fridge overnight, along with the apple you sliced and steamed.
3. Slice the cake in half and layer it with half the steamed apple and popcorn.
4. Make protein fluff and add on top.

How was it? Oh! It was SURREAL! The combination of apple and popcorn with vanilla is just out of this world delicious. That, with the crunchiness of the popcorn and the creamy fluffiness of the protein fluff –> wa wa wa wa! I’d actually never made apple protein fluff before. That’s a revolution on its own right! Oh, the whole thing was kind of like a deconstructed apple pie blown up with bits of protein madness to create a plate of absolute protein heaven.
