Thermomix Apple Tea Cake Recipe

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that my relationship with my Thermomix is strained. We’ve been madly in love, and then there are times when I have minor buyer’s remorse. But it’s not her, it’s me. I just don’t know how to use her properly. I mean, I know how to use it… but I just need to make an effort to use it for more than just blending stuff.

I will do it. I will.

Well, I did, actually. I made this cake. I always forget that there are different attachments where you can steam things… and I’m sure that this would make dinner super easy. Anyway, I will use it more… let’s get back to this cake.

It’s delicious. I’m a fan of any apple-type cake, and this one ticks all the boxes. It makes two cakes, so is perfect when you want to entertain or bake for a cake stall, or gift to a friend. I gifted one of my mine to a neighbour. The recipe suggests sprinkling almond slivers over the top, I did one with almond slivers and the other I sprinkled cinnamon sugar over the top. Both were delicious, but the almond slivers actually made the cake next level. I loved the crunch on top. Do as you please.

250g butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
6 cooking apples {Granny Smith are great}, around 800g
500g water
250g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
4 eggs

250g self-raising flour

♥ Preheat oven to 160°C. Lightly grease and line 2 round cake tins {20cm} and set aside.
♥ Peel apples, cut into quarters and remove cores. Cut each quarter into 4 slices and set aside.
♥ Place water into the mixing bowl and place Varoma into position. Place apple slices into Varoma dish and tray, then steam 10-15 min/Varoma/Speed 1 until apple is cooked and softened. Transfer apple slices into a bowl and set aside. Clean and dry mixing bowl.
