This one was designed for my little brother Eddy as it has all his favourite things in it: Dark Chocolate, Cookies and Cream Whey Protein Powder and Cashew Butter.
This cake is a big beast but no worries it freezes well and is great to share with friends.

You will need:

Puncture the aubergines all over with a sharp knife.
Place in a bowl, cover with cling film, pop in the microwave on a high heat for 8 minutes
Whilst aubergine is in the microwave, break up your dark chocolate into small pieces
When aubergine is cooked, remove from bowl, throw away excess water and peel them with a sharp knife
When peeled, blend aubergine into a smooth paste.
Pop dark chocolate pieces into the bowl aubergines were cooked in, so chocolate starts to melt
Mix the aubergine and dark chocolate together thoroughly and until chocolate has melted. If necessary pop mix back into microwave for 30 seconds
Crack your eggs into a clean mixing bowl
Add your protein powder to the eggs
Add your cashew butter and greek yoghurt to the mixing bowl
Mix in thoroughly with an electric whisk
So it looks like this when all combined
Add the aubergine and chocolate mix to the mixing bowl. Add your baking powder. Mix thoroughly with an electric whisk
Until you have a gorgeous cake batter
Prepare a large loose bottomed cake tin. I find Dr Oetkers Cake release spray fabulous for this. Bake in the oven at 160C for a non fan oven or 140C for a fan oven for 35-45 minutes. You will know cake is done when it has risen and you have placed a skewer into the middle and it comes back out clean
Leave to cool down completely in tin
Remove from tin and enjoy!
This cake keeps well in an air tight container in the fridge but also freezes well.
