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

    Cake
  1. 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.

     

     

  2. Ganache
  3. 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 or until silky and smooth.

     

  4. Decorating
  5. 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! 

    Be creative!

    A-MAZING!!!

    I wasn't sure how this would turn out but it was a sure fire winner. And it got better with age....

    This is a keeper of a recipe. I'm going to make it again this weekend, it's so good.

    Oh and I used 1/3 of the ganache recipe and it was more than enough for a whole cake; plus I reduced sugar to 170gm.


    Thank you for the share :smile:

    Submitted by JoyDew on 27. September 2016 - 16:25.

    I've made this a couple of times the last few weeks and it is beautiful both as a cake and cupcakes. I lowered the sugar to 100g and halved the ganache recipe. Today I made a double batch at once (1 for a cake and 1 batch of mini cupcakes) and the half batch of ganache even covered that. Definitely recommend this recipe.

  • Yummy cake, and so simple! I

    Submitted by Colls on 14. August 2016 - 10:13.

    Yummy cake, and so simple! I made it using 70% cocoa dark choc and it wasn't super sweet though- might try 50% next time. Used ganache from the BCB, made enough to cover the top of cake in a 23cm round tin- again, might use milk choc or lower % dark chocolate instead of 70% dark in ganache next time too to counter the bitterness of the dark chocolate.

    This cake was amazing, it rates for me as the best cake I have ever made since getting my thermomix late last year. It is so moist and tasty and the ganache was perfect made with Lindt dark chocolate. Well done to the creator

    Submitted by Chrissietina73 on 31. December 2015 - 00:37.

    Delicious! A family favourite now and so easy!  I would try milk chocolate in the ganache next time as the dark chocolate was a bit rich for me :)

    Fantastic recipe!! My 6 year old practically made this herself with a bit of help. Delicious and quick and easy. :) thanks  I made basic recipe ganache and poured it as a sauce on individual pieces. Was very moist and decadent.

    Submitted by Chopsuey on 10. September 2015 - 13:48.

    This is the second time I have made this fabulous cake. Made the first one on Sunday with my grandniece for my Nephew for Fathers Day. I did not get to try but was told it was great. So I made it again and we tried it last night. Wow, what a winner. All 6 peeps loved it! Had to cook for about one hour for each cake so just kept checking. Thanks for a winner of a recipe. My go to now!!!!!  :cooking_7:

    Thanks for giving it a try! I should have clarified that I use that much to decorate two cakes! Just halve the ganache for one cake and cook for 2-3 minutes instead! Thank you :-D
