TM 5Please 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!
Preheat oven 180C .
Line the base and sides of a spring-form 23 cm cake tin.

Pour cake mixture into tin and spread out evenly. Cover top of cake with the pear slices and scatter over the sliced almonds.
Bake for 50-60 mins.
Remove from oven and cool in tin for 10 mins before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve warm or room temp with a dollop of whipped sweetened coconut cream or cashew cream
To sweeten coconut cream, you can use maple syrup, honey (not vegan), or coconut nectar. I used the nectar part of Organic Coconut Spread. Add it to the coconut cream then whip. Put the cream in the fridge and it will thicken up to dollop consistency.
