Accessories you need



Two disclaimers:

1 - I have totally stolen this from Offspring Magazine's Facebook page. Same ingredients, just method changed to suit the Thermomix.

2 - I am in no way condoning the practice of feeding your kids cake instead of vegetables!! But as the mother of a vege-hater, I figure if you are going to have chocolate cake OCCASIONALLY as a TREAT you may as well hide vegetables in it. And they'll never know... tmrc_emoticons.;-)

    This is a very yummy cake! So soft and light.  I made it 150g zucchini and 50g broccoli as that was all I had and served it with just icing sugar dusted on top.  Hubby wants me to keep making it as a 'regular' lol.  I think it would be even better with a chocolate icing on top to be more decadent, yum!

    Oh and we made it into cupcakes and freeze them.  Then we just defrost them in the microwave as wanted.   Definately making again  :D
