Thermomix Birthday Cake

Thermomix Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

I often get asked for the most common cake I bake in my Thermomix and hands down, its the Carrot Cake recipe. I try and justify that baking with carrots ticks off one of our 5-a-day, but I think I’m only secretly kidding myself. The reason I think a Thermomix version has to be included in any Thermomix blog is because of how easy it is to make.

I do a lot of charity work in my borough of Tower Hamlets and a few summers ago, we did some cooking classes for local children in the area. The workshops were over 6 weeks where we made easy snacks that children could make showing them how home cooked food had more nutritional value than fast food, sugar-loaded snacks. One week, we made carrot cake the traditional way – weighing, measuring, peeling, grating, mixing, more weighing, more mixing…it went on and on. My team and I were dumbfounded by the how long this recipe took making it by hand. My team are so used to Thermomix method  that we had simply forgotten how time consuming anything else is. For those who want the easy, quick way without compromising taste, here it is.

Thermomix Vanilla Cake

Vanilla Cake

It’s Saturday night and my darling daughter has been unwell for a few days. She hasn’t eaten much and has requested cake. She’s gone to bed early. As a mother, I’m concerned and thought I’d surprise her in the morning with cake. Eggs, flour and sugar…at least she’ll eat something right?

Luckily, my Thermie to the rescue and so easy to make cupcakes without any thinking. Thanks to my lovely friend and former Thermomix Advisor, Kerry New, for the converted cake recipe from WI Australia. It’s so easy to convert your favourites into a Thermomix way and this one is my all time favourite. The plain vanilla version is gorgeous, but add a couple of teaspoons of coffee liqueur, its a coffee cake; the rind of a lemon or orange, it becomes an lemon or orange cake.

Edit: Yasmin is now 9 years old and the cake is still her favourite. Used for every birthday cake in the past 10 years. This cake is a real winner with all kids.
