      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

    oil, yoghurt, eggs, milk, vanilla and sugar to mixing bowl.

Accessories you need



This makes a large yet moist cake. Perfect for for that cake that needs to be that little but bigger than most standard recipes.

I have a caking business and this is the only vanilla vanilla recipe I have found that actually stays nice and moist.

Perfect split between 2+ cake pans for a layered cake. Or swirl through some colour for a lovely colour mix.
