The boys at BULK POWDERS™ requested that we put to test our culinary skills and come up with a Lemon Drizzle Cake… of course… their wish was our command and so using a fine selection of their products including ModCARB™ and VitaFiber™ we got to work and were able to re-create this delicious favourite and it was just… SUBLIME!
190g Ground Almonds
2 Scoop Lemon Meringue Whey
1 Cup Egg Whites
½ Cup Almond Milk
2 Tbsp Applesauce
1 Tsp Lemon Extract
1 Tbsp Grated Lemon Zest
1 Tsp Baking Powder
½ Tsp baking Soda
1 Tbsp Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp Agave Light Nectar
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
½ Scoop VitaFiber™ Powder
Note: Omit drizzle if you want a more macro-friendly version.
Preheat oven to 180 Degrees.
Mix all your cake ingredients in a bowl, no particular order, just make sure to leave the vinegar for last, then transfer mix to a silicone loaf pan and bake for approximately 20minutes until slightly golden over the top. Remove from oven, but leave oven on.
In the meantime, you will need to make the drizzle. Put agave and lemon juice in a pan and bring to the boil, at which point you need to add the VitaFiber and with a whisk, blend immediately until vitafiber is dissolved completely. Then, bring to the boil again, it will happen fairly quickly so don’t get distracted! As soon as it boils up a little remove from heat and drizzle over the cake.
Place back in oven and bake for a further 10-15minutes, until baked through. You may need to poke it to see if it has cooked through in the middle.
Leave to cool or cut it up immediately and burn your mouth while ooing and aahing. Upto you. We did the latter.
