Cake Ingredients

  • 6 egg whites
  • 4 cups of granola
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Frosting Ingredients

  • 2 bars of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla

Directions

Cake

Start by preheating the oven to 350° F (180° C). Place the 6 egg whites in a bowl and mix with a mixer until you can turn the bowl upside-down and the egg whites won’t fall. Keep mixing while adding the baking powder and the vanilla. Slowly add the sugar and keep mixing for one more minute. Once you stop mixing, slowly ad the granola and pecans. Using a spatula to mix the granola, pecans, and mixture with a “folding” motion. Then, grease a cake pan and add the whole mixture to the pan. Place the pan in the oven for 45 minutes. (Another way to check to see if it’s ready is poking the cake with a toothpick, once the toothpick comes out clean the cake is ready.) Once the cake is out of the oven, let it cool.

Frosting

Place the two bars of cream cheese in a bowl and mix with the mixer. While mixing, add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix until all the ingredients form a single mixture.

Putting it together

Take the cool cake out of its mold and spread frosting on the top half. You can now enjoy your granola cake!
