For the Cake:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup Nutrasumma Vanilla Pea Protein Powder

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, softened.

1 ½ cups granulated sugar.

4 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 ½ cups milk (you can use almond or soy milk for a dairy-free option)


For the Frosting:

2 cups whipped cream (or a dairy-free alternative)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup powdered sugar



Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

Prepare Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, pea protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Add Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla extract.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.

Bake the Cake: Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool completely.

Prepare the Frosting: In a separate bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the vanilla extract and powdered sugar until well combined.

Assemble the Cake: Once the cakes are cooled, spread a layer of frosting on top of one cake layer. Place the second layer on top and cover the entire cake with the remaining frosting.

Decorate and Celebrate: Get creative with your cake decorations! Consider using edible glitter, sprinkles, or edible flowers to add a festive touch. Write a New Year's message on top to make it truly special.
