      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. Preheat oven to 120 degrees fan forced. Grease and line a square 23 cm cake tin.

    2. Mill sugar for 10 seconds speed 10. Add chocolate and chop finely speed 6 for 10 seconds. Add butter, coffee and water.

    3. Heat for 10 minutes, 70 degrees, speed 1. Cool to room temperature (about about 15 minutes).

    4. Add milk, eggs, oil and vanilla. Mix on speed 5 for 5 seconds.

    5. Add flour, bicarb soda and cocoa powder. Mix on speed 5 for 10 seconds or until all combined. You might need to scrape the sides down and mix for a further 10 seconds.

    6. Pour into prepared tin and tap on the bench to remove as much air bubbles as possible. Place in the centre of the preheated oven and cook for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

    7. The trick for a nice flat mudcake is to cook the cake at a low temperature for a longer time, so check carefully after the 1 hour and 10 minutes and if the middle is still not set, keep in oven for further 5-10 minutes and watch carefully. Once cake is cooked, remove from oven to cool.

    8. Allow the cake to cool completely before icing with ganache. To make the ganache, chop chocolate speed 8 for 10 seconds, add cream. Cook for 2 minutes, speed 5 at 50 degrees. Scrape down and mix for further 1 minutes, speed 4 at 50 degrees. Cool to thicken ganache.

    Enjoy! Love, LO xx
