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!
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line a 20 cm round cake pan (I used a silicone ring tin)
Mix dates and bi-carb soda in boiling water and leave to soak for a few minutes while you do the next step.
Grind almonds for 10 seconds, speed 9.
Put dates, water and bi-carb into mixing bowl, and blend for 30 seconds, speed 6. You may need to stop and scrape the sides a couple of times, and maybe reduce the speed a little after the first few seconds if necessary.
Add eggs, oil, vanilla essence and blend for 20 seconds, speed 6. Scrape down bowl.
Add almonds, baking powder, cocoa and salt and mix for 20 seconds, speed 6. Scrape down bowl and repeat.
Pour into prepared cake tin and bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Leave until cool before turning onto a serving plate. I covered mine with chocolate ganache and served with whipped cream and raspberry coulis.
