Recipe is created for
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!
Preheat oven to 150 degrees (fan forced).
Add water, sugar, bi carb, butter and cocoa to the Thermomix bowl.
Turn on for 3 minutes and 30 seconds, 80 degrees, speed 2.
Leave it to cool until under 50 degrees.
Add eggs, turn on to speed 4 for 4 seconds.
Add flour and combine on speed 3 for 45 seconds.
Pour into 200mm lined tin and bake for 35-45 minutes depending on the oven, or until skewer comes out clean. If a few crumbs come out, that's perfect.
Add chocolate to bowl and grate on speed 9 for 10 seconds. Scrape sides.
Add cream and turn on to 50 degrees for 5 minutes, speed 2 or until silky and smooth. You may need to stop and scrape to bowl to ensure contents melt evenly.
Once cake has cooled completely you can spread Ganache over cake and decorate. The photo is actually two cakes, sandwiched with Ganache and jam then covered in more Ganache and strawberries!
