    Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    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

  1. Grease a bundt pan or loaf pan (13x24cm) and line with baking paper.

    2. Preheat oven 180°C

    2.Peel lemon with peeler and add rind and sugar to Thermomix bowl and mill 6Sec/Speed9.

    3. Add in rest of ingredients and and Mix 20 secs/Sp9

    4. Scrape down the bowl and Mix 10 Secs/Sp9

    Pour into prepared pan and bake 50-60 minutes - test with skewer - may need to bake a bit longer depending on your oven

  2. Lemon Icing
    1. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon in a small bowl.

    2. Add the icing sugar. Stir well to combine. If the mixture is really stiff, add a bit more lemon juice, bit by bit, because you don’t want it to get too runny.

    3.Pour over the cake.

Accessories you need



I used White Wings Gluten Free Flour - this is a twist on the original pound cake https://www.tmixplus.com/recipe/pound-cake -I liked the idea of adding some citrus - I am sure an orange twist would be just as good. I like to use SR Flour and baking powder with Gluten Free baking.

You can reduce sugar by a third as per Shezzie123 tip in comments.

    Good recipe and healthy! I just know people for whom consuming gluten can cause illness. So it is important to consume foods that are good for you. If you do not know about disadvanteges of eating food rich in gluten, then read the article https://essaydune.com/write-my-paper/ and make conclusions abut your food ration.

  • Absolutely delicious!...

    Submitted by Feesthermi on 5. July 2017 - 14:37.

    Absolutely delicious!

    I used normal SR flour, but a butter substitute as my boys are allergic to dairy. Huge hit with the whole family!! Just be wary of cooking time - I cooked at 160 degrees fan forced, from a cold oven and was cooked in about 40 minutes total, to make sure you keep an eye on it. Will definitely make again, thanks!

    ps - icing was fine but I was in a hurry and cake not completely cooled.
