      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Set oven to 180 degrees.
    Place sugar in TM bowl and mill for 5 sec speed 10.
  2. Add butter and if it is straight out of the fridge chop for 5 sec spd 7.
  3. Scrape down sides and insert butterfly add mix for 30 sec speed 4.
  4. Add vanilla extract and mix for another 30 sec speed 4 and while doing this add both eggs in through the top while the mixture is mixing.
  5. Remove butterfly and then add in milk and flour mix for another 15 sec speed 5 scrape down sides and then mix another 15 sec speed 5.
  6. Pour into standard cake tin or patty pans (makes about 20).
    I fill them to about 2/3 full they rise quite a bit.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees.
    Add ramekin of water to help prevent cake cracking
    Cup cakes take between 10 - 15mins
    Cakes about 20 - 25mins
    (test with metal skewer - it should come out clean when cooked)

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.

This cake recipe is always a winner.
