Peanut Butter Protein Cake Recipe
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 14 minutes per layer (40 minutes total)
Servings: 12 slices
- 1/2 cup (112g) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/3 cup + 2 tsp of Truvia Baking Blend or 3/4 cup (155g) sugar
- 3/4 cup (108g) brown sugar, loosely packed
- 3/4 cup (210g) peanut butter
- 1/2 cup (115g) sour cream
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups (325g) all-purpose flour
- 1 & 1/2 scoops of Swolverine Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter Whey Protein Isolate
- 2 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup (120ml) milk
- 1/4 cup (60ml) water
Peanut Butter Frosting Ingredients (Optional)
- 1 8oz Cream Cheese (softened to room temp)
- 1/2 cup butter (room temp)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 4 scoops Swolverine Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter Whey Protein Isolate
- 4oz PB2 (more or less to taste)
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Either with 1 round cake pan (or 2-3 if you have them), line the bottom with parchment paper cut into a circle. Grease the sides of the pans (we used butter).
- In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugars and peanut butter together until light in color and fluffy. Mix for 4 minutes (do not shortcut this).
- Add sour cream and vanilla - mix until well combined.
- Add one egg at a time and mix until just combined. Scrape down the sides.
- In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients
- Combine milk and water in another bowl.
- Add half of the dry ingredients to the batter and mix until well combined.
- Add the milk mixture and mix until well combined.
- Add remaining dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
- Make sure all ingredients are well incorporated.
- Divide the batter evenly between the cakes pans and bake for 14-16 minutes or until a fork comes out of the middle clean (baking time will depend on thickness/amount of layers - DO NOT OVERBAKE! This will make the cake hard!)
- Remove cake from oven and flop onto your platter immediately (be careful not to break the cake in half).
- In a large mixer bowl, cream cheese, and butter together until fluffy
- Add in the vanilla extract
- Slowly add in protein and PB2 and mix until smooth
- Mixture should be light and fluffy
- To put the cake together, use a large serrated knife to remove the domes from the top of the cakes so that they’re flat. Place the first cake on a serving plate or cardboard
- Spread a fine layer of the frosting on top of the first layer.
- Add the second layer of cake on top of the frosting.
- Add another layer of frosting on top of the cake and spread evenly
- Top the cake with the remaining layer and frost the outside of the cake.
- Top with cinnamon and PB2 (we put walnuts on top for decoration).
