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.
