      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

    Dark Chocolate Lava Cakes
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.


    Place butter and chocolate in the TM bowl.  Melt 3.5mins/50 degrees/Sp1.  Set aside.


    Without cleaning the bowl add 2 eggs and sugar - then mix for 20sec/Sp5.


    Add melted chocolate mixture and the flour and mix for 30sec/Sp5. Stop haldway and scrape down the bowl.  Continue to mix till the end.


    Spoon mixture evenly into 4 slightly greased and floured Ramkins - poke a cube of chocolate into the centre of each until just covered with mixture (about half way).


    Place into freezer for 10 minutes until set.  Turn oven down to

    160 degrees and then bake lava cakes for 15 minutes or until just set on the outside and gooey on the inside.


    In the meantime make chocolate curls and berry compote.


    Chocolate Curls - Using a potato peeler run down the back of a room temperature chocolate bar to create curls (small).  You know what they say - too much of a good thing!


    For Decoration - Place reserved whole strawberries one at a time on a plate and press down gently with the palm of your hand to create a heart shape.  Gently cut out the stalk from the top in a "v" shape to finish off the perfect heart.  Set aside. 


    Compote - place halved strawberries into TM bowl with icing sugar and water.  Cook for 2 mins/90 degrees/Sp1.5.  Set aside.


    Turn lava cake onto plate and dust with icing sugar.  Spoon strawberries gently on the side of the cake and around the plate. Sprinkle with chocolate curls and add the heart shaped strawberry on top.  Lightly dust with icing sugar.
