      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!

Accessories you need



I have used a 12"  round cake tin for this recipe, but you can use whatever size you have handy. If you are using a smaller pan or a loaf tin, check if the cake is cooked after 1 hour by inserting a clean knife or skewer into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean, it is cooked. If it comes out dirty, bake for a further 15 mins and re-check.

    I found that the batter needed a bit more mixing manually with the spatula afterwards.
    But the end result was perfect!

    the batter appeared a bit thick but then once baked it was super fluffy. Perfect!

    I wonder if there is a typo in regards to the amount of flour... I followed this recipe and the resulting batter was more like biscuit batter...
