  • 900 grams water
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt
  • 210 grams caster sugar

  • 100g grams raw almonds
  • 3 peaches, sliced into fine wedges

Recipe's preparation

    Peach and Almond Quinoa Cake
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 160C. Grease and line the base of a 23cm round cake tin.
    2. Place quinoa into Thermomix basket, rinse gently under running water until water runs clear. Place basket into the thermomix bowl. Pour in the water. Cook for 14 minutes/Varoma/speed 2. Remove the basket with the spatula and set aside in a separate bowl. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
    3. Place the almonds into the bowl, pour a small amount of water into the bowl to wet the almonds. Swish the water around to ensure the almonds are all wet. (this will allow the thermomix to chop the nuts rather than mill). Tip the water back out of the bowl.
    4. Place the empty thermomix basket back into the bowl (this keeps the nuts closer to the blades, and fewer nuts sticking up high where the blades don't reach). Set the thermomix to the closed bowl position and use very quick bursts of the Turbo button a few times until the nuts are finely chopped. You will need to scrape down the bowl a couple of times to make sure all the nuts are chopped roughly the same size. Set aside into a separate bowl.
    5. Rinse out the thermomix bowl. Add the honey eggs, yoghurt, sugar, butter and vanilla into the bowl, combine for 10 seconds/speed 4. Add melted butter. Combine for another 20 seconds/speed 4. 
    6. Add quinoa into the bowl. Mix together for 1 minute/speed 2. Pour into a large bowl.
    7. Fold the flour and half of the almonds through the mixture. 
    8. Pour half of the mixture into the cake tin. Place half of the peach slices on top and then pour in the remaining mixture. 
    9. Top the cake with the rest of the peach slices and then scatter the remaining nuts over the top.
    10. Place into the oven and bake for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
