We accept that other vegetables are good in sweets, Carrot cake, Pumpkin Pie, Zucchini mudcake, Beetroot brownies so why can’t the lovely, creamy, soft Eggplant be featured as the star of a cake? It is a fruit after all!

When an Eggplant is baked it has a similar texture to a very ripe banana so this is much like a Sugar Free Banana cake recipe using Eggplant as the fruit. The result is amazing, a really delicious, moist, creamy cake which is Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Grain Free and can be Dairy Free easily.

If you are after another vegetable cake try my Pumpkin Slice.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • You first need to bake the eggplant (this can be done in advance)
  • Place whole eggplant in a 200C oven on a tray for at least an hour. The skin will be all puffed up and as it cools you will feel the flesh extremely soft. If any liquid escapes, keep it to include in the cake
  • When the Eggplant has cooled, remove the stalk and place all of the eggplant skin and flesh it in your food processor
  • Add all of the other ingredients except the almond meal
  • Process on high until all pureed, the lemon and baking soda will interact and bubble a little
  • Scrape mix down sides and blend again if needed
  • Preheat oven to 160C non fan forced if you can or about 150C fan forced
  • Spray coconut oil into a small Bundt pan OR line a loaf tin with baking paper so it drapes over the sides to help remove the loaf later
  • Sprinkle the bundt pan with some flaked almonds to prevent sticking (the almond flakes will go on top for the loaf)
  • To finish the cake gently stir in the almond meal and pour into pan (sprinkle loaf tin with Almond flakes now)
  • Bake for about 1 hour in centre of oven
  • Once ready a tooth pick will come out clean, you will also see the sides shrinking in slightly
  • Allow to cool thoroughly before gently running a knife around the bundt pan then turning upside down on your plate to serve, the loaf will simply lift out with the aid of the paper
  • To make the optional icing melt the coconut butter (recipe is within the pumpkin slice recipe), coconut oil and liquid Stevia drops together in microwave or saucepan then pour over cake
  • Store in Fridge
  • Enjoy xoxSha

    I do love your website, but I find the font that the recipes are in so hard to read! I have to copy and paste recipes into a word doc so I can decipher them.

      Hi Lisa
      Thanks for your message. The font is quite a new one, it reads beautifully on current versions of Internet explorer, mozilla, safari and chrome. If you could please simply update whichever Internet browser you use, I am sure this website and many others will look better! Good luck

    This sounds delicious. Due to allergies in my family we are nut free so I was wondering if you have any suggestions as a replacement for the almond meal? Thank you for sharing your yummy recipes.

    Yeah, I’ve just checked chrome (my normal browser) and it’s running the most recent update. However I opened the same page in IE and it looks fine and the words are now readable.

    Strange. Thanks for getting back to me.

    Took my oven over an hour to bake it but it was soooo worth the wait – yummo! Moist and dense, love it!

    Is the Natvia liquid or powdered form?

    This is a favourite in our house!
    @Josephine – I always use powdered stevia 🙂
