High Protein Angel Cake

Makes 1 cake

  • 1/2 cup (approximately 4) room egg whites at room temperature
    1 tsp cream of tartar
    10 drops liquid vanilla stevia
    3/4  scoop whey protein powder 
    1/2 tsp baking powder
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly coat a pie plate or round cake pan (about 8 or 9 inches across)  with non-stick spray.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, and vanilla stevia until stiff peaks are formed.  This may take several minutes and longer if the air is humid.  You cannot hurt them by overbeating. 
  4. In a small bowl, mix the protein powder and baking powder together.
  5. Add the powder mixture to the stiff egg whites and gently combine. Do not break down the peaks when mixing.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan, gently spread it evenly,  and bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and let rest 5 or 10 minutes before cutting or serving.
