In Episode 39, we bring you some great Thermomix chocolate cake recipes. The criteria for this week’s recipes were that they had to be simple chocolate cake recipes – not too fancy, not mud cake, not layered chocolate cake… just a simple chocolate cake that was delicious, easy and suitable for a range of dietary requirements.
Here are the recipes we chose this week:
Recipe 1 – Simple Chocolate Cake (The 4 Blades)
Thanks to our friends Dan's grandmother for this traditional recipe turned into a Simple Thermomix Chocolate Cake. Can be made in the traditional way, or GF / DF. Best served warm.
Recipe 2 – Magic Bean Cake (Hungry Hungry Hippies)
This is Joe’s new favourite cake (apart from his New York Baked Cheesecake… he really loves that one!). This is moist, stores well, can be served without icing (it has a shiny top!) and can be made grain and dairy free, if required. We used xylitol, so it was also better on the blood sugar levels too. There are versions of this recipe on different sites, and the Recipe Community, but we found this version to be great!
Recipe 3 – ‘Free From’ Chocolate Cake with Choc-Coconut Icing (Me and My Thermie)
How fabulous that Lesley from Me and My Thermie has provided an egg-free cake that is moist and delicious! Making an egg-free cake can be challenging enough, but this one is also quite tasty and light. Well done Lesley! The icing also complements it! This was designed to be a Jaffa Chocolate Cake, but in keeping with the ‘rules' of this week's podcast, it was chocolate only.
Here are some cool tips from this podcast…
– Clean batter out of the TM bowl by setting to Speed 6 / 20 seconds.
– Make your own gluten free baking powder by following the tips in Episode 21 of the podcast.
– Save a container in your cupboard by only keeping plain flour and add 1tsp of baking paper per cup of flour to turn it into self-raising. – – Check out how we line our cake pans here:
