Prep Time


  1. First, place the dried cranberries and sultanas/raisins in a bowl and pour over the rum. Set aside for 30 minutes to soak

  2. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease 4 x 250ml individual pudding tins and place on a baking tray

  3. Place the flour, sugar, spice, baking powder, banana, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla into your Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja and blend well to form a batter

  4. Stir in the dried pineapple along with the soaked dried fruit and remaining rum. Mix well

  5. Spoon the mixture between the tins to nearly reach the top and bake for 25 minutes until risen, golden and firm. Leave to cool in the tin then run a knife around the edges and pop each pudding out

  6. Meanwhile heat the coconut sugar and rum for the sauce in a small pan, bring to under the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour in the coconut milk, whisk and simmer for a few minutes to thicken. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and cinnamon

  7. Serve each pudding with some of the coconut rum sauce and enjoy!
