Pre-heat oven to 180 deg. I find with my oven, that 160-170 deg is plenty & I bake the cake for an extra few minutes, to ensure it doesnt dry out or burn.
Grease or line your cake tin. I use the Thermomix pre-cut parchment paper & I grease the sides of the tin. This recipe makes a massive 33x23cm (12″x9&Prime slice. If you want to make a 22cm (8.5&Prime round tin use about 2/3 and if you want to make a 18cm (7&Prime round tin use 1/2.
Melt the coconut oil a little - 1 min, 50 deg, sp 2
Crack eggs into a separate small bowl, one at a time, to ensure they're good eggs before adding to the coconut oil
Add remaining ingredients & mix - 10 sec, sp 7. Scrape sides of bowl & repeat
Pour the cake mix into your pre-prepared tin & bake for 35-40 min, no fan. Do the usual skewer test - poke the cake in the middle & if the skewer comes out clean, the cake is ready. Otherwise, give it an extra 5 min try again.
Cool the cake at room temperature, or refrigerate for a speedier process
Wash & dry the bowl
Add all ingredients into the bowl - mix 20 sec, sp 4
Scrape sides & mix again 20 sec, sp 6
Spread the frosting over the completely cooled cake & refrigerate.
Directly from the Kehoe's Kitchen web site - 'When serving, remove from fridge about 30-45 minutes before to allow butter in sponge to soften.'
I had the cake you see in the image sitting out on a cool day, for about and hour and a half before serving. The textures were perfect. Easy & clean to slice up.
***** EDITED: Makes about 18 regular slices. It's a BIG cake *****
I made a double batch of the cake & the frosting, as I needed to make a layered cake. It served aout 16 children and 16 adults & we still have 1/4 of the cake left. It's in the freezer for healthy, nut-free lunch box treats or that unexpected visitor (or just a healthy chocolate craving).
I also made cupcakes using the same recipe. It made 20 regular size cupcakes.
This recipe is a Thermomix adaptation of the Kehoe's Kitchen 'Best Ever Chocolate Mud Cake'. Enjoy! I'd love to hear what you think.
