      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!

    Cook 8-10 minutes, 100 deg, speed 3.5 (use that speed to prevent mixture boiling over) Sugar will be dissolved.
    While this is heating, turn oven on to 180 deg C and prepare cake tin. The 23 cm round Thermomix springform cake tin is perfect. I line the bottom of tin with paper and grease sides.

    While TM is still going on speed 4, add 50 gms cocoa powder through hole in lid. Weigh in 375 gm flour and 4 eggs.

Continue to gradually add icing sugar. Scrape down well and mix for 30 seconds on speed 4.
    Make you frosting is mixed well. Place in frig and cool.

Accessories you need



As I did, youcan adjust the sugar,
If you have a hot oven use lower temperature.
I place some wet paper towel in foil around my tin while I am baking to ensure it cooks evenly
