Protein Lemon Drizzle Cake | Protein take on a classic Lemon Drizzle Cake

15th March 2016

This Protein Lemon Drizzle Cake, created with some of Go Nutrition’s finest ingredients, is made as pure and as natural as possible, making it perfect for a guilt-free Sunday treat. Plus, with almost 10g of protein per slice, this cake is the perfect post-workout snack!

Ingredients:

1 cup Almond Flour
1/2 cup Whey Protein 80 Vanilla
1.5 tbsp Coconut Flour
1/2 tsp Bicarbonate Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
Pinch salt
3 eggs
3/4 cup stevia
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp Lemon Extract
Juice of 2-3 Lemons (to taste)
1/2 cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Melted)
Optional Lemon Sugar Syrup

Juice 3 lemons
3 tbsp xylitol
Frosting

1 cup Sugar-Free icing sugar
2 tbsp Milk
Squeeze Lemon Juice (to taste)
1/2 tsp Lemon Extract

Method:

1) Preheat oven to 170C and line a loaf tin with baking paper. Process the cake ingredients together until smooth, then pour into the loaf tin and bake for 35 – 45 minutes (covering half-way with baking paper if it browns too quickly) or until a toothpick comes out clean.

2) While the cake is baking, make the sugar syrup (optional) by heating the ingredients in a pan on a medium heat until a thick syrup forms. Set aside until the cake has cooked, then prick the loaf all over with a fork and liberally brush the syrup over with a pastry knife (you don’t need to use it all!). Leave to cool.

3) In the meantime, make the frosting by mixing together the ingredients until smooth, then drizzle over your cooled cake. Cut into slices and enjoy.
