  •  I would like to make smaller

    Submitted by Francien21 on 3. December 2012 - 22:58.

     I would like to make smaller ones for a HIGH TEA I'm having.  Can you suggest other small/petite morsels sweet or/and savoury with my Thermomix.

    Cheers

  • You can pour the remaining

    Submitted by Thermomix in Australia on 24. October 2012 - 18:50.

    You can pour the remaining syrup over the cake or serve it on the side.  You could even pour it over a scoop of vanilla icecream on the side.

    The cake is great and took it with me on  a quilting retreat!!! Should the remaining syrup be poured over the hot cake or just served with it?

    Yum Yum Yummy!

    This cake was a dream to make and super yummy. Served for morning tea, but would be great as desert with icecream and syrup on top.
