Protein Pumpkin Breakfast Cake

by Courtney on February 1, 2011

Who doesn’t love cake for breakfast, right?


Well, this protein pumpkin cake is amazing.

It has a very dense and very moist consistency, making it nice and filling. It has just the slightest hint of sweetness which comes in part from the diced apples that are inside.


When I counted up the nutritional facts for this recipe on SparkRecipes, I portioned it into 9 servings. However, you could easily be much more generous. Winking smile

Take a look at the facts:

Check out that protein! It’s definitely a must-try! Smile



I highly recommend enjoying your cake by popping it into the microwave for 20 seconds to get it warm, then top it off with a little Greek yogurt, some banana slices, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

I’m sure peanut butter would be just as fantastic….but either way, it’ll rock your socks! Smile
