Cricket Flour Cake Recipe

Cricket flour is gaining in popularity and we’ve been getting more and more requests for recipes. Cricket flour has so many uses so why not start with a crowd pleaser. Here is a recipe for a cricket flour and poppy seed cake with raspberries.

Make a cake with 1100 crickets

Cricket flour makes everything more nutritious, and this cake is no exception. We will be using 100 g of cricket flour from our own cricket farm The Cricket Labwhich adds up to roughly 1100 crickets. That means this cake will pack a lot more protein than probably any other cake you ever tasted. Plus it will be a good source of iron, vitamin B12, calcium, and fibre.

Nutrition info, the whole 2200 g cake:

Energy - 3600 kcal, protein – 200 g, carbs – 380 g, fats – 390 g

Nutrition info, a 200 g slice:

Energy - 327 kcal, protein – 18 g, carbs – 35 g, fats – 36 g

This cake is the perfect opportunity to help your friends and family discover that insect eating is not something to fear. It’s something that can be really tasty and even healthy (ish), let’s not forget this is still a cake. We hope you like it as much as we did. Let us know how it turned out!

Ingredients:

Cake layers

  • 6 eggs
  • 100 g cricket flour
  • 150 g ground poppy seeds
  • 100 ml coconut oil
  • 100 g cane sugar (or your preferred sweetener)
  • 50 ml water
  • baking powder

Filling

  • 250 g Mascarpone
  • 250 g Ricotta
  • 250 g curd cottage cheese
  • 200 g cream cheese

  • 200 g cherry jam
  • 50 g cane sugar (or your preferred sweetener)
  • 1 tsp stevia

Instructions:

  1. Separate the egg yolks from the eggs whites. Whip the whites with cane sugar until they look like snow.
  2. Mix the rest of the “cake layers” ingredients together with the snow until dough is formed.
  3. Bake for about 45 minutes at 180 – 200 °C in a cake form. Check regularly to avoid burning.
  4. Whisk all ingredients for the filling (except raspberries and cherry jam) together and put in a fridge to stiffen up.
  5. Cut the cake into three layers.
  6. Spread cherry jam, the filling, and raspberries on each layer.
  7. Stack the layers on top of each other and decorate with raspberries and toppings of your choice.

Suprised by taste

I have bought a starter pack and haven't tested all the products yet.
But protein bar and "milk" shake are excellent. And my friends are also interested in and so it's handy to have discount coupons for them.

Perfect ingredients, natural taste

I love the ingredients of this bar, nothing artificial, nothing that makes me bloated. I like that it is not too sweet, but has a natural, earthy flavour. Makes me full for hours.

Great powedered protein!

This very comparable to the mainstream whey powders from a nutritional content perspective - at 20/25 protein per scoop and ~120/30 kkcal. The taste is super nice! Blended in ~250/300 ml of water its surprisingly thick and smooth, which i like very much. The only minus I can think of is that it takes a bit more "shaking" to blend fully and ensure there are no hard pieces - not a big deal.

Delicious Proteins

I had the starter pack. I have to say, I really enjoyed it.
But lets go through it piece by piece.
Crackers: The crackers of all flavours were very good and crunchy. Only I found them a little bit too salty.
Protein bars (pleasure cricket): They were just perfect, I loved them.
Protein bars (serious): They were very good as well, but could be a little bit sweeter (but than they might not be serious anymore^^)
The protein powder tasted very good. I think it was sweeter than my usually used one(Huel), and did't feel to feed me as good, but still very nice.
The pasta were quite similar to other lentilles pasta, not very special.
I haven't tried the baking powder so far, but looking forward to use it for pancakes or so.

Hi,

Product hasn't arrived yet but hopefully soon.

Thanks
