Pumpkin Protein Cake with Turmeric

I just wanted to share another one of my latest breakfast recipes that uses turmeric... Pumpkin Protein Cake with Turmeric...  you know I love turmeric, and am working it into my food plan more and more lately.

This is a great high protein and low carb breakfast treat... and it is delicious and very filling!  This cake is dense and doesn't rise much, even with the baking powder.

I used North Coast Naturals Vege Pro-7 protein powder in this recipe. Feel free to use your own favorite.
