      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180°. Coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

    Measure sultanas in the steaming basket and add to a small bowl, add rum, gently stir the rum through the sultanas and let stand, placing bowl to one side for later. Next, measure in your TM bowl the flour, nutmeg and salt. Transfer the dry ingredients to another small bowl for later.

    Prepare topping ingredients: Measure out coconut, brown sugar and cinnamon in TM bowl and gently stir to combine

    5sec/Gentle stir setting /Counter-clockwise operation

    and place dry ingredients aside in a small bowl for later.

    Mash sweet potato in a large bowl (you should have about 1¾ cups). I place cubes of sweet potato in the microwave with about 20g (1 tbsp & a bit) of milk and microwave until soft, checking every 3 mins and stirring, then mash. Add the mashed sweet potato to the thermo bowl, Add coconut milk, brown sugar and butter30sec/speed 2.
    Add the dry ingredients from the bowl that you organised earlier and stir 20sec/Gentle stir setting/Counter-clockwise operationscrape down sides and stir again 10sec/Gentle stir setting/Counter-clockwise operationuntil just combined. Add the sultanas and rum mix and stir 10sec/Gentle stir setting/Counter-clockwise operation until just combined. Spread the batter in your prepared pan. Sprinkle the topping on top of your cake evenly.

    Bake the cake until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 1 to 1¼ hours, depending on your oven. Check it at the 1 hour mark. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan and gently remove the side ring. Let cool at room temperature for 1 hour, then refrigerate until cold, about 3 hours.
  2. This Pudding/cake is versatile where it is lovely served cold from the fridge served with cream or yoghurt, as it is a very dense pudding, it holds its shape and has an almost cheesecake like texture.

    The other way we enjoy eating this pudding is heated up in the microwave in portions and add a hot thermomix custard to the table along with cream. This way it really tastes like pudding.

    Hope you and your family enjoy this as much as we do. Be sure to leave me a comment and rating below. x
