NEW RECIPE: Maple Pancake Cake
Have you ever tried to make protein pancakes? Did you end up with rubbery, dry, or horrible textured discs instead? I guessed as much…When most people want to step into the world of protein baking, pancakes is an obvious ‘easy’ first recipe, however if you try to swap flour for protein – it won’t work.
Now I have been guilty of this myself, and not every pancake recipe I make has always been a success on its first try. Over the years I have perfected how to make delicious protein pancakes and have plenty of recipes on my blog however this took a lot of trial and error.

GoNutrition have gone a step further and made it even easier to make pancakes by creating their ‘Protein Pancake Mix.’
The mix itself contains a blend of whey, milk and egg proteins along with ground oats, flax seed powder and MCT’s meaning that all you need to do is simply shake it up with a little water, then cook it like normal pancakes for a batch of perfect protein pancakes every time!
I gave some a try and wow, the maple syrup flavour is incredible. Being me however, I saw the mixture had much more potential than just being used as pancakes, and so I added a few more ingredients, popped it in the oven and BAM – one of the most delicious, moist and gooey cakes I have ever made.
So give this recipe a go and let me know how you get on. You could easily adapt it and add in chocolate chips, berries, dried fruit or nuts. After you have cooked it, try microwaving a slice for 10 seconds… Mind blowingly good!

Maple Pancake Cake Method
- Pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees celsius.
- Simply add all of your ingredients to a food processor and blend for a few minutes. Make sure you scrape down the sides to ensure all of the batter is mixed.
- Prepare a 7" baking tin with a little spray oil, pour in your batter and spread it round so that it fills the pan. Give it a little tap to ensure the mixture is right at the bottom.
- Cook it in the middle of your oven for 15 minutes, then remove it and allow it to cool on the side.
- Slice and enjoy! Why not try topping it with fresh fruit, extra greek yoghurt or even a little maple syrup!
