TM 5Please 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!
- 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.
- 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.
