    Very runny & didn't set very well, but it's great as a pudding

  • I was really disappointed

    I was really disappointed with the end product. Processing the apples for that long just resulted in mush and the dates too were over processed. and the end result was a stodgy cake.

    This is usually a lovely cake with great texture and caramel flavour. My suggestion is cut up the dates and apples into chunks pour the bioling water over the and stand for 20 mins. Mix the cake batter and then fold in the apples and dates.. 

    The best way of getting the coconut spread evenly is to just sprinkle over the cooked cake, cook the milk and butter topping with the sugar in the thermomix and pour over the coconut

    I have found that often ingredients are overprocessed when the Thermomix is used just for the sake of using it !
