      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

    Easy steps
  1. Prepare large loaf tin or 20cm round tin
    Preheat oven to 170 degrees
    Soak the dates in the boiling water (aim for at least 20 mins)
    Cream the butter and sugar 15 seconds speed 4, scrape down sides
    Add the egg and mix 10 seconds speed 4
    Add the bicarb into the date mix and stir
    Pour date mix into the creamed butter/sugar mix
    Mix 5 seconds REVERSE speed 4, scrape down sides
    Add self raising flour and mix until just mixed (peep through the MC) 20 seconds REVERSE speed 3
    Pour into prepared pan (I generously sprinkle brown sugar on the top as I love the crunch)and bake for approx 40-45mins
    Leave in pan for 5 mins if you can resist before popping onto cooking tray!

Accessories you need



Serve when warm, fantastic with lashings of butter or reheated with a caramel sauce.
Lasts really well for a few days in an airtight container and can be toasted for work in a sandwich toaster!
i have also made the GF by switching the flour and DF by substituting Nuttolex as well.

    I added a dash of maple syrup. It needed extra time to cook.

    But it was a hit with the fussy family. Yummo.
