This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

I hope you guys are all ready for the ultimate indulgent dessert right here. With the Great British Bake Off now well underway, I thought it would only be fitting to share my current favourite cake recipe! These are pretty much everything you could dream of when you think of a warm, decadent Autumn dessert. There’s light, soft sponge, gooey melted chocolate and they’re also completely plant-based, gluten and refined sugar-free – as well as being super easy to make!

  • Chocolate Cakes
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 120g gluten-free flour
  • 50g + 2 tbsp ground almonds
  • 3 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 100g coconut sugar
  • 115g vegan butter
  • Molten Chocolate
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter
  • 2-3 tbsp cacaco powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
Prep Time


  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and lightly grease a doughnut tray with a little coconut oil. I use a silicone one here, but you could always try these in a mini bundt tray.

  2. In your Ninja Kitchen food processor, combine the banana, coconut sugar and vegan butter and blend these to cream together.

  3. Add in your dry ingredients and blend again until you’re left with a smooth cake batter.

  4. Pour this into your doughnut tray and smooth over the tops of each of these. Makes around 6 doughnut cakes.

  5. Pop the cakes into the oven and allow to bake for around 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before transferring from the tray to a cooling rack.

  6. Meanwhile, gently melt the coconut oil and cashew butter together, then stir through your cacao powder and maple syrup.
    Frost each of the cakes with the chocolate sauce and garnish before serving.

Cooking and being in the kitchen was always something that I loved, after always helping and watching my mum cook as a child. Fitness is a huge part of my life, so making sure that I fuel my body with healthy, nourishing foods goes hand in hand with that. I started to create healthy alternatives to my favourite dishes and loved sharing my photos and recipes on social media just as a hobby. After a while I decided to set up my blog, which was my place to really get creative and write and share whatever I wanted.
