      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




    Preheat oven to 120 degrees C


    Line the base and sides of a loaf pan (approx. 22x14x8 cm)


    To a clean, dry bowl add the sugar.  Mill for 5 secs, speed 10.


    Add the eggs, plain flour, baking powder, cacoa and vanilla essence to the sugar.  Mix for 30 secs, speed 4.


    Using the scales, weigh the fruit and nuts into a mixing bowl.


    Reserve some fruit and nuts to top the cake when it is in the pan.

    Using a spatula, scrape the mixture from the jug onto the fruit and nuts.


    Hand mix until all the ingredients are combined, there should be a coating on all the fruit and nuts.


    Pack mixture into the prepared loaf pan.


    Top with reserved fruit and nuts, you may have to press these into the top of the mixture to make them stick.


    Bake in the preheated oven until cooked, approximately 1.5 to 2 hours.


    Remove from the oven, cool on a wire rack.  Once cooled, remove from the pan and remove paper (if used).


    Store in an airtight container or wrap in foil and refrigerate.


Accessories you need



If using a silicone loaf pan you do not need to line it.

Using a cake tester to see if it is cooked sometimes works, unless you skewer a glaced piece of fruit.

I tried solely mixing this in the jug using Counter-clockwise operationGentle stir setting but it didn't achieve the required result.  Further development of this recipe will follow.
