      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 200 degrees

    Grease and line a 20cm round springform cake tin.


  2. 1. Weigh Chocolate in bowl, then grate speed 7 until fine (mine took 10 seconds but I broke into pieces into the bowl)

    2. Add butter and golden syrup. Melt items together - 45 degrees, 4 mins, speed 1. You may need a further 60 seconds if not fully melted.

    Transfer mix to thermoserver (no lid)


  3. (You could rinse the bowl but I didn't!)

    3. Place butterfly whisk in bowl. Add eggs and sugar and beat at speed 4 for 10 minutes. Add sifted flour and beat for a further 20 seconds on speed 4.

    4. Fold egg mixture into chocolate mixture with a spatula.

    Pour into prepared baking tin and bake for 12 minutes.


  4. When you remove from oven run a knife around edge of the cake and release the springform collar.

    Leave cake in the fridge for at least an hour to cool and set.


Accessories you need



You can use lactose free chocolate (I use 80%) and nuttelex to make lactose free. You can also use gluten free flour. The golden syrup can be replaced with dextrose or coconut oil for a healthier option.


Serve with cream, ice cream or marscapone to cut through the richness of the cake.

  • In step 3, do the eggs fluff

    In step 3, do the eggs fluff up like they do for meringue? Mine didn't. I even tried separating the yolks and the whites and they still didnt. (I didn't wash the bowl either).

    Turned out more like a brownie than a soft mousse cake.

    But the guests loved it... I also added orange zest for a bit of flavour.

  • For a less rich/heavy version

    For a less rich/heavy version you could lessen the chocolate to 300g without impacting the consistency too much (it might need a few minutes less baking).
