      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. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

  2. Prepare a 20cm round cake tine by lining the base with baking paper and greasing the sides.

  3. Place flour, sugar, almond meal, polenta, baking powder and lemon rind into the TM bowl and mix 10 seconds at speed 5.

  4. Add the yoghurt, oil and eggs, then combine by mixing  at speed 3.5 for 20 seconds, alternating mixing speed every 5 seconds.

  5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and repeat mixing step above, or until a homogeneous mix is achieved.

  6. Pour the batter into the cake tine and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

  7. Allow the cake to cool, then prepare the lemon syrup.  To do this, place the sugar, lemon juice and water into clan TM bowl and heat at 75 degrees for 3 minutes, speed 1.5.  Subsequently bring to a boil by heating to 100 degrees C for 1.5 minutes at speed 1.5.

  8. With a skewer poke small holes all over the cake, then spoon the syrup over the cake, letting it sit for 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
