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!!

  1. Which category would this cake fall into? S, E, or FP? This looks wonderful…I will have to try this for sure!

  2. Girl, how blessed to have an entire congregation conniving against non-THMers each Sunday!!! How lucky for you! Lol That is awesome because, otherwise, a weekly potluck could be baaaaddddd.

  3. If you just wanted the cake and berries (no whipped cream), would it be a FP since the amount of coconut flour per serving would be so small? Looks delicious!!

  4. Hey Jen!!! Yummy! Cld you replace the vanilla protein powder with anything else? It looks so good, but I don’t have any of that.

    • Hmm, I don’t know…you could try more coconut flour I guess but, I’ve not tried it.

  5. Well, I just got the cake made today and I’m going to have to say that I am VERY IMPRESSED!! It was absolutely amazing! Now I’m sad that I am out of heavy cream and won’t be grocery shopping until Friday, which means I can’t make this again until Saturday. 🙁

  7. This looks SO AWESOME! One of the best recipes I’ve seen in awhile. I also am a tad envious of half the church on THM 😉 I will continue to share it with everyone I possibly can, in hopes that shared meals can be easier! hehe. Thanks so much for sharing this!!

    • You are welcome! It is a big bonus on Sundays when it comes to our fellowship meal! 🙂

  8. If I want to send a few pieces of this cake to my son in college, do you think they would hold up during shipping? Or the whipped cream would flop? I am in CA and he is in VA.

    • I’m pretty sure the whipped cream wouldn’t make it. Maybe the cake would be fine but, and he could put some Fat Free Redi Whip on top when he gets it?

  9. This would be a great one for strawberry shortcake! 🙂 Lucky you with so many THMs at your potlucks! Love it with the cards S E Or FP! Can I use carton egg whites for this? Or won’t they whip up the same? Thanks!

  10. I was wondering if you could sub THM baking blend for the coconut flour? I only use that flour now.. Thanks oh and how much baking blend…

    • I bet so. I’d use a bit more though since the coconut flour is thirstier than the Baking Blend.
