Tip

To make pouring the mixture out a little easier you can heat the mixture to 50 degrees in TM bowl as soon as it hits temperature remove and pour.

You don't have to use the butterfly I just included it because I thought it would help with creaming the butter and sugar but it is not essential.

    I made as per the instructions and made 2 cakes because I found that it didnt rise much and was a bit dence so thought I would try again but was no better. After reading the other comments I made a double batch and did as per M.Lydeamore's tips whipping longer with the butterfly and seems to have been more of a sucsess!

    My cake rose about an extra inch higher than the packet and looks fantastic!!

    Just wondering what you would advise for non fan forced oven? I baked yesterday at 200 for about 30mins and it looked fab, but when I came to turn it out it had deflated/sunk. tmrc_emoticons.~ That's never happened to me lol I also did it as a rainbow marble. Tasted fine- just low. Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Fail safe recipe. I have done
    Submitted by quaddie on 1. November 2012 - 22:45.

    Fail safe recipe. I have done single and double batches and with and without the butterfly. All worked just as well. The best batter was made with room temperature butter. I did a quadruple batch and it took about 2.5hrs. Note the mix does rise a fair bit - about double so take that into account. The first cake I made overflowed because I was advised to fill the tin to the brim. Big mistake! 

    Thanks for the conversion.

    Submitted by M.Lydeamore on 15. December 2011 - 18:17.

    I have made this recipe from the AWW Children's Party Cakes book several times in my thermomix, have just never gotten around to writing my conversion down, so I thought I would follow Fiona's conversion and see how it compares to what I normally do.

    Halijah, I may be too late to answer your question - but I always make a double batch, it fits in the thermomix fine. Today I made a double batch and cooked it in a normal round cake tin - it was very tall and rose above the tin. It took about 55 minutes to cook right through. The cooking time will vary depending on the shape of the tin, so just keep an eye on it. It's a great, simple recipe and always tastes delicious, so I hope yours turned out ok!

    The only things I do slightly different are: I chop the butter for about 20 seconds before putting the butterfly in rather than 5 seconds - otherwise the butterfly has trouble turning. I then mix with the butterfly for between 1 and a half to 2 minutes, stopping and scraping several times. I just keep going until the mixture looks nice and white and creamy, just like it would if you had creamed the butter and sugar in a mixer. I like to do this to make sure it turns out nice and light and fluffy!

    I have also used this recipe as cupcakes, which turn out yummy too tmrc_emoticons.)

    Hi, I want to make this recipe for my daughters b'day next weekend. If I wanted to make a double batch do I just double the qtys? And would I have to cook it for 40-45min? I'm going to use a rectangle tin.. So I'm hoping it will turn out tmrc_emoticons.)
