    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

    Gluten free flour mix
  1. Place white rice, glutinous rice and chia seeds into mixing bowl and mill 2 min/speed 9. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix 15 sec/speed 6. Transfer into a sealable storage jar or container until ready to use (see Tips).
  3. Gluten free baking powder
  4. Place all ingredients into mixing bowl and blend 10 sec/speed 9. Transfer into a sealable storage container and set aside until ready.
  5. Butter cake
  6. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a cake tin (20 x 30 cm) and line base with baking paper. Set aside.
  7. Place butter, milk, flour mix, sugar, baking powder, eggs and vanilla into mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 4.
  8. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and mix for a further 10 sec/speed 4. Transfer mixture into prepared cake tin and spread evenly with aid of spatula. Lightly tap tin on benchtop to remove any excess air bubbles.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes (180°C) or until a wooden skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow cake to cool in tin for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely (approx. 20 minutes). Clean and dry mixing bowl.
  10. Chocolate icing
  11. Place all chocolate icing ingredients into mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 6 or until smooth.
  12. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula and mix 3 sec/speed 4. Transfer icing into a bowl and set aside. Clean and dry mixing bowl.
  13. Assembly
  14. Insert butterfly whisk. Place cream into mixing bowl and whip until soft peaks form/speed 3.5, watching carefully through hole in mixing bowl lid to avoid overwhipping. Remove butterfly whisk.
  15. Trim edges of cooled cake, then cut into halves horizontally. Spread one half of the cake with all the jam and top with all of the whipped cream. Stack remaining cake half on top of cream. Transfer into refrigerator to chill for 20 minutes or until cream is firm enough to cut the cake into squares.
  16. Using a serrated knife, cut cake into 12 portions (approx. 4.5 x 4.5 cm). Using a palette knife, run knife around cut surface of each lamington to remove any excess cream.
  17. Spread coconut onto a plate. Carefully rest a cake portion on a fork, and using another fork dip cake into chocolate icing, spooning icing over the top and sides to completely coat cake. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off. Carefully transfer cake onto plate with coconut and roll in coconut to coat all sides evenly. Transfer onto a wire rack. Repeat icing and coating with remaining lamingtons. Serve immediately or transfer into a sealable container until ready to serve (see Tips)

    The mixture wasn't enough to cover the base of the tin so I had to made another batch. In hindsight I should have tripled the recipe as the cake was only 2 cm deep.

    th ganache was way too think and I resorted to thinning it down with about a 1/4 cup of milk.

    The gluten free flour makes a delicious tasting cake.
