Apple Cinnamon Protein Cake (aka Nathan's Cake)

I went to an unofficial OH gathering this weekend. Met a lot of wonderful people and spent time with good friends.

My friend Michele was there with her beautiful grandchildren. Nathan her grandson is a big Eggface blog reader and has helped his Grandma make lots of my recipes. I told him I would make a cake in his honor so here it is...

Shelly's 5 Minute Sugar-Free Apple Cinnamon Cake

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk (I used Vanilla Soy)
2 Tablespoons Sugar-Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel)
2 Tablespoons No Sugar Added Applesauce
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix (I use this)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Pecans, chopped
1 Tablespoon Raisins
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
Pinch salt
1 Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug

In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, milk, syrup, applesauce, and oil and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, cinnamon, nuts, raisins, protein powder, and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined. Nuke in microwave for 2 minutes. Let it sit for three or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping the cake onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices.

I topped it with Homemade No Sugar Added Whipped Cream, a drizzle of SmucSugar-Free Free Caramel Sauce and some chopped nuts.

Oh I had this Q the other day...

Q: What size measuring cup do you use for your 5 minute cakes?

A: I use a 1 cup and a 2 cup. I mix the dry ingredients in the 1 cup and the wet ingredients in the 2 cup. I tip the dry into the wet and mix. The cake gets nuked in the 2 cup.
