I have been super inspired by more requests from my giveaway post! I received a request for a healthy strawberry shortcake from @whatstheovenonfor! Though I am still going to make a more traditional one, this breakfast shortcake was delicious! This cake (used as the shortbread cake in this case) is made with 3 ingredients: applesauce, egg and collagen! (FYI–USE CODE STARINFINITEFOOD10 for 10% @furtherfood collagen!) This morning I made a shortcake using these mini apple cakes, @kitehillfoods yogurt, strawberries and @nunaturals chocolate syrup! It was like a delicious dessert No better way to start a Monday!
This cake is super moist and sweet just from the applesauce!
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 organic egg separated (yolk and white)
- 1 egg white
- 1 scoop collagen peptides
Directions: Preheat oven to 350. In one bowl, whisk together the applesauce, collagen and yolk. In a separate mixing bowl, beat the whites with an electric mixer until they reach stiff peaks. Once they have, combine the two mixtures carefully incorporating all the ingredients together so that it creates a fluffy mixture. Spray two mini cake pans or one 8 inch pan (I used round, but could be any shape. Place in the oven for about 20-22 minutes until cooked through! That is it!
