This recipe from @kirstyfletcher is a real contender for our all-time fave Easter treat.

Made with irresistible Chocolate Eggs-flavoured The Whey protein powder and a generous dollop of our milk chocolate Protein Spread, it’s a rich, indulgent-tasting cake that comes packed with 32g of protein per serving. Oh, and it only needs 2 minutes in the microwave to be ready. Talk about an instant hit.

Go to town with all the toppings you fancy to satisfy those sweet-tooth cravings. You know you deserve it.

Makes 1


  • 33 g THE Whey (Chocolate Eggs)
  • 10 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 10 g Protein Spread (Milk Chocolate)
  • 50 ml almond milk
  • 2-3 drops Vanilla FlavDrops
  • 15 g Sugar-Free Syrup
  • 10 g Protein Spread (for topping)
  • 4 chocolate eggs



In a small microwave-safe ramekin or mug, combine the protein powder, flour, baking powder, and salt.


Mix in the milk, vanilla FlavDrops, and Sugar-Free Syrup. Stir well to make sure there’s no lumps.


 Place a generous spoonful of milk chocolate Protein Spread in the centre of the dish and then cover with a little mixture.


Pop in the microwave for 2 minutes – checking every 30 seconds to make sure it’s not overflowing.


Top with a little melted milk chocolate Protein Spread and some chocolate eggs for a super-indulgent finish – and enjoy.

Tip: be careful of that molten protein chocolate centre!
