      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. 1. Add sugar, 4 seconds, speed 10. Add butter, chocolate, water, coffee and sugar melt at 5 min, 60 degrees speed 3 or until melted, then cool.

    2. Add flour and cocoa, mix 20 sec speed 4
    add eggs and mix 20 sec speed 4 until combined

    3. Line 25 cm tin with foil on base (sunny side down), then baking paper on base and sides. Fill tin 3/4 full, may be some mixture to make into cupcakes. Can halve the mixture into two seperate cakes to later stack. Makes a huge batch.

    4. Bake 180 degrees Celsius for about an hour and a half for large cake, approx 20 min for cupcakes or until cooked. I rotate my cakes every 20 min to ensure even cooking.

    5. Leave in tin for 20min to cool slightly before turning onto a rack to cool completely before icing.
  2. Ganache
  3. 1. Grate chocolate 6sec speed 8, scrape sides down.
    2. Add cream and melt 3min 60 degrees speed 2 or until completely combined. Can scrape sides down halfway through if needed.
    3. Cool to room temperature before spreading over cake.
    4. Butterfly can be inserted if wanting a mousse consistency for ganache. Beat speed 4 watching throughhole for desired consistency. Be careful not to over beat.

Accessories you need



Be careful not to exceed max fill line, especially if using TM31. May need to be reduced or done in two batches .

Some of the water can be substituted for Baileys or Kahlua. It’s amazing!

Serve at room temperature.

    very yummy! I made mine into a birthday cake and used buttercream icing. It made a HUGE batch which was great because I made cupcakes and just added some white chocolate chips (because I was too lazy to ice them)! Great recipe!
