  • Step 1

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

  • Step 2

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

  • Step 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.

  • Step 4

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

  • Step 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.

  • Step 6

    Meanwhile heat the coconut sugar and rum 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.

  • Step 7

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