Chef Bob is here for our first inaugural protein powder recipe using Cellucor’s COR-Performance Whey to make a Protein Cake Recipe!
You’ll want the Peanut Butter Marshmallow flavor of Cellcucor COR-Performance Whey Protein for this one. Use coupon code CellucorNation when buying your Cellucor Whey at Cellucor.com to save money!
Set up your wet and dry ingredients first – we start with 50g of extra fluffy pancake mix – this is just the add water only product, so it’s very simple. An optional ingredient you can use that I love is sugar-free / fat-free jello mix.

A lot of you know me as Chef Bob, I post a lot of recipes, today we’re going to make a very generic protein cake — very simple if you need something quick to eat, but tasty like a treat.
The ingredient round-up
So I already have my wet and dry ingredients ready. As you can see, I used 50g of extra fluffy pancake mix – the add water only product – it comes out very easy and simple; baking soda (2g) to help the protein cake rise.
Despite what the video says, baking soda is not needed!!
An optional ingredient that you can use which I love is sugar-free, fat-free Jell-O pudding mix — I have the vanilla flavor in here — it helps with the moisture and fluffiness of the final product.
A touch of Splenda can be added to make it sweeter – this will depend on how sweet your protein powder is.
And finally, I’m using a scoop of the new Peanut Butter Marshmallow Cellucor COR-Performance Whey, which is an incredible flavor. This is one of the best protein powders out there!
I’m mixing these all together, this is a “sifting” of the dry ingredients.
The wet ingredients
For the wet, you can use an egg or an egg white – I’m going to use an egg white, so we can just toss that in there. This will help bind the whole product together when it’s all said and done. You can use it without the egg white, but it definitely makes a better cake as far as texture and moisture goes.
I also like to include a little bit of yogurt – yogurt is a great replacement for oils when you’re baking or cooking. You can also use applesauce for lower fat alternatives. I’m using 2 tablespoons of yogurt.
Since this is pancake mix that only needs water – you have to make this into a thick pudding-like consistency, so when we’re done, we’ll slowly add a bit of water as needed.
Slowly start mixing it together – if there’s far too many dry ingredients, add a touch more water.
Now take cooking spray, spray your pan, and toss it in the microwave for three minutes!
As a note, you’ll probably want to use a glass container if you don’t like microwaving plastic.
It may not look like there’s much in here, but when it’s all done, it will leaven quite a bit ot the top of the container. This filled a three cup container to the top.
When it comes out, the inside middle will be a touch gooey, but you’ll want to edge around the inside with a fork to help fluff it out and get it out of the container.
Top it however you want
You can add PB2 if you want, or any other topping, but we just kept this simple. You can also add Walden Farms zero-calorie syrups (the maple syrup alternative is incredible!)
