6 Favourite Thermomix Cake Recipes for Birthdays
Bec celebrated her 30th birthday back in 2014, and we released Episode 53 of the podcast… all about Thermomix cake recipes that are great for birthdays! You can still listen along by clicking on the play button at the top or download this in iTunes or on Stitcher Radio (and don’t forget to leave a review – it really makes our day!)
Since then, we have added some new favourite Thermomix cake recipes to our repertoire.
Thermomix Cake Recipe 1: Bec’s Best Thermomix Carrot Cake
This is one of our all time favourite cakes! Bec actually served this at her 30th birthday party. It’s a sure-fire crowd pleaser. Bec has been making this carrot cake recipe for YEARS. It would always take her hours to do as she would grate all the carrot by hand. It has her favourite elements of a carrot cake – carrot, pineapple, walnuts and cinnamon. It has been made so much easier and will hopefully be one of your favourite Thermomix cake recipes from now on! Enjoy – Bec’s birthday present to you!
PS. You can find the recipe for the frosting recipe we talk about in the podcast here.
Thermomix Cake Recipe 2: Thermomix Cheesecake Filled Carrot Cake
For a bit of a tweak on carrot cake… we present our AMAZING Thermomix Cheesecake Filled Carrot Cake recipe to you. Oh boy is Peta proud of this one! One word for this cake: impressive!
This is the cake you want to whip up to take to an event or celebrate a team member’s birthday at work. People will think you are a baking genius!
Thermomix Cake Recipe 3: Californian Banana Cake
This recipe has been shared with us by Victoria Perreau, and was contributed to The Readers Collection.
“When preparing to submit this banana cake as an entry I nearly called it ‘Yet Another Banana Cake,’ as there are a lot around. However, I have tried a lot of those recipes and I still keep coming back to this one. I was given the recipe by a roommate when I was studying in California a very long time ago, hence the name. I have adapted it from a traditional method, and although it has a couple more steps than most banana cake / bread recipes, they are worth it to get the beautiful texture!” – Victoria
Thermomix Cake Recipe 4: Layered Citrus Cake
Speaking of birthdays, this was the cake of choice for Bec’s 33rd birthday! She has always been a fan of citrus – so this is a double whammy! The gorgeous lime and orange layers combine to create visually stunning and one of the best Thermomix cakes.
This gluten free / dairy free cake was created for The Kitchen Garden Collection of the magazine which has a whole section of “Citrus Faves” in it (not all sweets though! The Citrus Grilled Chicken is a fabulous example of how you can use citrus to create a great mid-week dinner!)
Thermomix Cake Recipe 5: Thermomix Cookies and Cream Mug Cake
For a bit of a change of pace, how about a mug cake? Birthday cakes don’t always need to feed a crowd, you know! Making a mug cake with the help of your Thermomix and your microwave is an amazing choice for a late night dessert for one or two people. This Cookies and Cream mug cake is going to tick all the boxes for your decadent treat.
Thermomix Cake Recipe 6: A cake with a twist!
Not only is this Thermomix ice cream pie impressive and delicious, it’s super easy too. It’s like a Thermomix Ice Cream cake but with a delicious crunchy crust made with chocolate and rice bubbles which makes it easier to handle.
The filling is ice cream mixed with maltesers which complements the crust beautifully. This recipe is a real winner and is sure to impress anyone you serve it to. This recipe was featured in episode 147 of the 4 Blades podcast as the dessert for the kids dinner party, put together by our nephew Sam.
This ice cream pie makes for an incredibly simple and delicious dessert that will serve a large group. It takes minimal time and will make all the kids (and adults!) feel like they are getting a super special treat! Planning a party? Make mini individual versions in small colourful paper ice cream tubs.

Here are some cool tips from this podcast…
– When creating an accompaniment to a dish (e.g. frosting for a cake, or a side dish for a main), consider using the flavours that are already in the dish. Joe gives the example of using the spices from the Beef Stroganoff in the cabbage side dish.
– Using springform pans are the easiest way to quickly line a cake tin. Put a sheet of baking paper over the bottom of the tin and click the side into place. Trim the edges and grease the sides.
