Incredible Hulk Bowlcake

Print Friendly

I remember growing up watching David Banner turn into the Incredible Hulk on Saturday mornings. It was always a mystery how his clothes ripped perfectly and that he always had something to change back into once he returned to his usual self. Ah the good ole days with a great Saturday morning lineup interspersed with Schoolhouse Rock. 😉

I’ve experimented with spinach in protein shakes before and I swear without the cool green color, you’d have no idea that there was spinach in there. I follow a very creative baker on Instagram under the username @amandamclark. Her creations are not only gorgeous but they tend to taste great too. The other week she whipped up a bowlcake that was as green as the Incredible Hulk.

I played around a little with her recipe and came up with a version that turned out pretty well. I love LOVE the color. You have to admit it looks pretty cool, dressed up in a bowl. Not only did it taste good, but it’s also perfect timing for a Halloween kinda dessert. I bet the kids would love this. Again, I swear no spinach taste. Keep an open mind. 🙂

Incredible Hulk Bowlcake Incredible Hulk Bowlcake

  • 2 cups (57g) raw spinach
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp (7g) coconut flour
  • 1 tsp (3g) psyllium powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 dropper vanilla stevia, or to taste

Mix all ingredients in a Magic Bullet or blender and blend until smooth. The amount of water you need will vary based on how dry your batter is. You want cake batter consistency because… it’s a bowl cake. Most times I use 2 – 3 tablespoons of water but sometimes need to add a little more. Pour the batter into a microwaveable bowl and microwave for approximately 3 minutes until the cake is done.

Makes one cake at approximately 89 calories – 9g protein, 9g carbs, and 1g fat.

Notes

  • You can probably use regular or whole wheat flour in place of the coconut flour. Adjust the water though since regular flour will need much less liquid.
  • If you like a sweeter cake, use more stevia, sugar or alternate. Consider what you will be eating your cake with too. If you top it with sweet toppings, you might need less sweetener than you think.
  • Kids will probably prefer the cake sweeter so keep your audience in mind too. You can always taste the batter (if using carton egg whites!), and add a little more at a time.

I cut my cake into Hulk Cubes and dumped them on top of chocolate protein ice cream. Then there was the mandatory sugar free chocolate syrup and a small pinch of sprinkles on top. Life is always better with a little pinch of sprinkles. Since the spinach keeps the calories so low, you could probably make an orange pumpkin bowlcake and mix it together with the green one for a festive combo.

Have you ever tried hiding spinach in something? Did you watch the “old” Incredible Hulk that I did or are you from the “new” Hulk generation? 😉
