      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

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and grease and line a ring cake tin.

    In a clean dry bowl, insert butterfly and add flour, sugar, salt and cocoa. Place lid on and sift for 10 sec/speed 2.

    Add all remaining ingredients. To save getting a heap of ingredients on the underneath of your lid, follow this mixing guide:

    10 secs/speed 1, then increase to
    10 secs/speed 2, then increase to
    40 secs/speed 4.

    Scrape down sides and final mix for 10 secs//speed 4

    Pour into prepared tin (I prefer ring tin, it cooks quicker without it drying out on the outside by the time it cooks through) and cook for 30-40 minutes or until it springs back when poked or a skewer comes out clean.

    Let it cool on a rack and ice with choccie icing and sprinkle with coconut.
