Recipe's preparation

  1. The eggplant will need to be baked in advance, so do this the morning of or the night before.


    Put the eggplant (whole) in a baking dish and bake at 200C for an hour. Its ready when the skin is puffy and the inside soft. Keep any liquid which has escaped.

     

    If you need to make your almond meal, do it at this stage and add 250g raw almonds to TMX bowl. Mill on speed 8 for 7 seconds.***Set aside**


    Preheat oven to 150 fanforced..

     

    When the Eggplant has cooled, remove the stalk and place all of the eggplant skin, liquid from eggplant and flesh it in your TMX. Add all of the other ingredients except the almond meal. Process on speed 6 until well combined, the lemon and baking soda will interact and bubble a little.


    Scrape mix down sides and blend again if needed. The more you mix at this stage, the less skin will be visible in the final cake.

     

    Add in almond meal, mix on speed 5 for 3 seconds.

     

    Pour mixture into a lined cake tin. i use a springform tin.

    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.

     

    Cool completely before trying to remove cake from tin. Store in fridge.

     

    ** Ganache recipe**

    80g of 80% dark chocolate

    60g of coconut milk

     

    Add dark chocolate to TMX and mill on speed 8 for 20 seconds.

  • This is the second time I have made this cake....

    This is the second time I have made this cake. This time I made 6 small loaves and baked it about 40 minutes. So delicious and very moist. No one would know that it is eggplant. Love that it is gluten free. Has become a favourite.

    I have used two small, about the size of a standard Orange or large Apple or one large eggplant and both have worked well. Sorry I can't tell you about weight.

  • who would have thought you

    Submitted by kimbennetta on 19. December 2014 - 21:51.

    who would have thought you could make cake with eggplant.  I varied mine slightly.  I didn't have macadamia oil so used coconut oil and when I made the sauce I didn't have coconut milk so used coconut cream.

    Submitted by shabs on 26. May 2014 - 19:35.

    This turned out great  tmrc_emoticons.) I used about 450g mini eggplants from my garden, but once roasted they weighed about 320g. Really delicious and moist. I had to cook it 1hr20 but my oven sometimes needs longer. Iced it with Rawtarian's chocolate icing...divine! Will make again.

    I have grown lots of eggplant and this sounds like an unusual use for it!  How much eggplant?
