- 40g chocolate Whey Better – Bio- Synergy
- 45g dark chocolate
- 120g egg whites
- 40g Xylitol (sugar alternative)
- 1 Tsp baking powder
- 30g reduced calorie butter

- Tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp low Calorie Strawberry Jam
Chocolate Ganache Topping
- 80g Dark Chocolate
- 2 Tsp Coconut oil

Mix all the dry ingredients together then in a separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix everything together. Line a baking tin then spray with coconut oil. Spread the cake mix into the baking tin and bake for 15-20 minutes at 150-160C. Ensure to keep checking the cake by inserting a tooth pick. When a clean tooth pick is removed, the cake is cooked. Let the cake rest for 20 minutes to cool down.
Next make the protein cream mix by mixing the vanilla whey and cream cheese along with the vanilla extract. Slice the cake in the middle to form a bottom and top tier. Spoon the jam onto the bottom tier along followed by the cream mix. Place the top tier to form a cake sandwich.
For the topping melt the dark chocolate with the coconut oil and cover the entire cake with the ganache. Finally decorate your cake with your choice of sprinkles.
