T4B136: Supercharged Healthy Baking With Sophia

Mar 9, 2017

Supercharge Your Thermomix Baking!

In Episode 136, we invited the clever Sophia Handschuh from Thermomix Baking Blogger back on the podcast to give some tips on making your baking a little bit healthier. We are always interested to hear what healthy means to different people, and as baking isn’t traditionally considered ‘healthy’, we were interested to discover Sophia’s perspective… because, we know that if we ran a baking blog we would be the size of houses! Sophia lets us in on her secrets to staying healthy while she’s baking amazing cakes, tarts, breads, pastries and the like.

Like so many of us, Sophia found that her extended family had a wide range of dietary needs, so when catering for family functions she needed to think about how she could make her baking more suitable for a wider variety of people. That’s how ‘Supercharged’ came to be. From vegetarian to vegan, to allergies to paleo. It’s no longer as easy as it used to be to feed your extended family and friends, right? Supercharged reflects these changes with different options for flours, sugars and fats.

Sophia shared how she uses discipline to not devour everything she bakes, and aims to add more nutrition to her baking by the ingredients she chooses. 

Sophia’s Thermomix Flourless Beetroot Chocolate Tart is a great example of that! 

We wanted to know… Why beetroot? In a dessert??? Sophia explains why beetroot is a great match for chocolate and the benefits it can give, not just by adding more nutrition, but to the colour, texture and taste.

Exciting news!

Sophia is generously giving away a copy of Supercharged to one lucky listener. All you need to do is check out the image of the contents below and tell us in the comments which recipe you would make first.
