Angel’s Cake- Fuel Pull

Cake!!  Who doesn’t love cake!  I posted a lovely recipe from a friend the other day, called Angel’s Berry Cake!!  Man oh man it is divine!  It is a very Satisfying cake.  My THM buddies know what that means!  Well, the secret or not so secret thing is that the cake is a Fuel Pull when you take off the whipped topping!  Great news!  🙂  I thought I’d post just the cake recipe with a few ideas for topping that will keep it a Fuel Pull.  Big props to Rohnda Monroy for the idea and beautiful picture of the cake!

Cake Mix:

  • 1/3 Cup of Swanson’s Vanilla Whey Premium Protein Powder
  • 1/3 Cup of Truvia (or 12 packets)  Grind them after you measure it out.(or 1/2 cup of xylitol, powdered)
  • 6 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. of aluminum free baking powder

This is for the basic cake.  You could add other flavors or extracts if you want to get creative!

Pre-heat the oven to 350!

First, beat the egg whites with a shake of salt until they form peaks and become firm!  Add the cream of tartar and stir mix some more until even firmer. In another bowl sift or mix the dry ingredients together well.  I did grind up my Truvia. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Sprayed a 9 by 9 glass baking dish with coconut oil cooking spray.   Pour in the mixture!  Easy! Bake for 25 minutes.  Keep your eye on it in case your oven bakes hotter or cooler than mine.

Fuel Pull TOPPINGS!

The first FP topping idea is pictured above!  Rohnda used the Lemon Mousse from page 367 in the book, a few berries and a tiny bit of Fat Free Redi Whip!  YUM!!

Tummy Tucking Ice Cream from page 368 would be divine on top!

Another idea from Aleah is to put some Cottage Berry Whip on top!  That can be found on page 379. 

You can use the berry layer on top of the cake as well and keep it a Fuel Pull.

  • 1 and 1/2  cups of berries (mixed, blueberries,blackberries, raspberries or strawberries)
  • 8 packets of Truvia or 1/8th cup xylitol
  • pinch of gluccomanan (add as needed)

In a saucepan, add  mixed berries or the berry of your choice!  Angel made this with all blueberries and it was divine!!!  I used mixed berries in mine.  Let it bubble and simmer down.  Add 8 packets of Truvia (or 1/8th cup xylitol) and a pinch of gluccomanan.  Let it thicken a bit.  Add more til you get it to the thickness you like.  Kinda like a jelly.   Let it cool.

I hope this gives you some fun, yummy ideas for a delicious Fuel Pull Cake!  For more fun recipes, visit Gwen’s Nest!

Angel’s Berry Cake- (S)

DSC_0201This cake is out-of-this-world GOOD!  Each Sunday after church we have a potluck.  Thankfully, half of the church is on Trim Healthy Mama!  So many wonderful choices on Sundays with little place cards by them that say, “S, E or FP”  This Sunday, my friend Angel hit the ball of out the park!  She made the best cake I have had in a LONG time!  So, I’ll call it Angel’s Berry Cake since that’s her name!

Cake Mix:

  • 1/3 Cup of Swanson’s Vanilla Whey Premium Protein Powder
  • 1/3 Cup of Truvia (or 12 packets)  Grind them after you measure it out.(or 1/2 cup of xylitol, powdered)
  • 6 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp. of aluminum free baking powder

This is for the basic cake.  You could add other flavors or extracts if you want to get creative!

Pre-heat the oven to 350!

First, beat the egg whites with a shake of salt until they form peaks and become firm!  Add the cream of tartar and stir mix some more until even firmer. In another bowl sift or mix the dry ingredients together well.  I did grind up my Truvia. Fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Sprayed a 9 by 9 glass baking dish with coconut oil cooking spray.   Pour in the mixture!  Easy! Bake for 25 minutes.  Keep your eye on it in case your oven bakes hotter or cooler than mine.

Topping:

  • 1 and 1/2  cups of berries (mixed, blueberries,blackberries, raspberries or strawberries)
  • 8 packets of Truvia or 1/8th cup xylitol
  • pinch of gluccomanan (add as needed)

In a saucepan, add  mixed berries or the berry of your choice!  Angel made this with all blueberries and it was divine!!!  I used mixed berries in mine.  Let it bubble and simmer down.  Add 8 packets of Truvia (or 1/8th cup xylitol) and a pinch of gluccomanan.  Let it thicken a bit.  Add more til you get it to the thickness you like.  Kinda like a jelly.   Let it cool.  After it cools, pour it over the cake. Let this chill while you whip up the third layer!

Whipped Topping:

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup of xylitol (powdered)  or Truvia, 6 packets (powdered)
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla

Use mixer until it’s firm and whipped.  Spread over the cooled cake on top of the berries.  You could add a new flavor twist to this as well.  I love good old vanilla flavored whipped cream!!  I stuck the cake back in the fridge to store it and let it chill until we ate it for dessert!

This cake serves 9.  You can easily double the cake into a large cake pan!  Enjoy!!
