Recipe's preparation

    Classic Chocolate Cake
  1. Take butter for both the cake mixture and the buttercream out of fridge and place on the bench to soften.

  2. Preheat oven to 160 °c.  Line cake tin (22cm approximately) with baking paper and grease lightly.  

  3. Place butter and brown sugar into the thermomix bowl for 30 seconds on speed 5.  The texture should be creamy.  

  4. Scrape down sides using the spatula.  

  5. Add the remaining ingredients to the thermomix bowl (eggs, bicarbonate of soda, milk, plain flour, baking powder, cocoa).  Mix for 30 seconds on speed 5 and then 20 - 30 seconds on speed 8.  

  6. Pour cake mix into prepared greased cake tin.  

  7. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked when tested with a skewer.  Cool on a wire rack.  

  8. Chocolate Buttercream
  9. After cleaning the thermomix bowl, place softened butter in the bowl and mix for 30 seconds on speed 5.  Beat until pale and creamy (as shown).

  10. Add the remaining ingredients (icing sugar/mixture, cocoa and milk) and beat for 30 seconds again on speed 5.  The buttercream should be chocolate brown, light and fluffy.  

  11. Spread the buttercream over the cake.  Make sure the cake is cool or it will melt on application.

    Love the recipe! The best tasting and textured chocolate cake i have ever made!! Thanks for sharing! I did make some adjustments to the timing and speed i mixed at though. To cream the butter and sugar until pale, I began with the recommended sp5 for 30 secs, but then i scraped down the sides and did an extra sp 3.5 for 1 minute. Huge difference to the paleness and creaminess. I also added the eggs first and mixed them at sp 3.5 for 30 seconds. I then added the remaining ingredients and extended the mixing time here too. I am certain that these measures contributed to the amazingness of the cake. Smile

    Submitted by Decembergirl on 24. September 2018 - 14:15.

    This cake was delicious! I usually avoid making cakes in the Thermie, because they turn out overbeaten, or not mixed properly, but this was perfect and I'll defintely make it again.

    I reduced the sugar to 200 grams and only made half the buttercream icing and it was just the way we like it. Chocolatly without being super sweet. Both of my daughters (7 & 3) loved it too.

    I just made the buttercream to go on a cake I had already made (different recipe). It was delicious! Didn't mix the butter by itself first - put all of the ingredients into the bowl and then mixed for 90 seconds on speed 5. Worked a treat!
