      Recipe is created for
      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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 150c and grease a 8 x 8 square pan.  


    Add Cinnamon quill to TM bowl and mill speed 9 until fine.  Add cored and quartered apple to TM bowl, chop speed 4 for 3 seconds.  Scrape down sides, add the cup of warm water and repeat.  Add sugar plums to soak and soften in the apple slush in the TM Bowl.  60 Degrees, 5 minutes, speed 1 Reverse.  Remove lid and let the mixture cool in the TM bowl for another 15 minutes.  When cool enough to handle, take the seeds out of the sugar plums, discard seeds then add the fruits back into the bowl. Chop speed 5, 3 seconds.  Repeat if necessary.  You want the majority to be finely mixed in (since there is no other source of sugar in the cake) but it is ok to have some left in slightly bigger pieces.


    Add the eggs, vanilla and oil/butter into the TM bowl.  Speed 2, 5 seconds.  Add the flour and baking powder, mix Speed 2.5, 5 seconds.


    Pour mixture into pan and bake for 40 - 45 minutes.  


    With 10 minutes to go, prepare the topping.  Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a steady boil.  Let the mixture reduce by at least half.  It should thicken and darken in colour.  Take off the heat and allow to cool slightly.  When the cake comes out of the oven, drizzle over the top.  


    Note: I used only about half of this topping for the cake.  The rest I poured into a clean jar to use as a delicious caramel sauce another time.
