This protein recipe is what I consider a “functional food”. It’s definitely not winning any baking contensts, and it does NOT taste like a cupcake!
But, when you have physique goals, sometimes you sacrifice a little flavor (or lack of flavor), to get in your food!

And this basic Minute microwave protein cake has a lot of potential! I’m definitely experimenting with different proteins and flavors. BUT, the basic recipe doesn’t change.

(and FWIW- Don’t leave off the whipped cream!! This recipe needs it!)
