      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Accessories you need



The cake batter is a very wet batter, no need to add extra flour, this is normal. 

Experiment with different sugars. I've found caster sugar will result in a fluffier cake, brown sugar results in a more dense cake. 

The cake is also known to stick to the cake tin, I highly recommend greasing & lining the cake tin. I use a silicon cake tin and still grease it and line the bottom. 

Goes beautifully with chocolate buttercream icing. 

I often double the batter and cook for 70 minutes. When doubled it fits nicely into my 23cm square cake tin.
