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!
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees. Line a 20cm square cake tin.
Place the carrots and walnuts into the TM bowl then chop on Spd5 / 3 seconds.
Scrap down sides of bowl. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, mixed spice, sugar and sultanas to the TM bowl. Mix on , spd 3 / 10 seconds.
Add the oil and eggs. Mix on , spd 5 / 10 seconds.
Pour your cake mixture into the lined cake tin and bake in the oven for 40 to 45 mins. Once cooked allow to cool for 5 mins in the tin before removing onto a wire rack.
While your cake is cooling, make the cream cheese icing!
Place the butterfly whisk in the TM bowl over the blades, then add the cream cheese and butter. Beat on speed 4 for 10 seconds. Scrape down side of bowl and repeat another two times.
Add icing sugar and lemon rind to the bowl and beat on speed 4 for 30 seconds.
Once your cake is completely cool, spead the cream cheese icing over the top of your cake and cut into 16 equal pieces. I like to put a little grated lemon rind on the top of the icing to finish it off.
Enjoy your cake
