Thermomix Butter Cake Recipe With Butter Glaze

If someone ever told me that I had to live without butter, I’d probably cry and then cry some more, because BUTTER. Doesn’t it make everything awesome? I mean bread and butter is the best, and then butter cake. C’mon guys, tell me you’re on board the butter bandwagon {I probably need to jump off for the sake of my thighs, but BUTTER}?

I made this cake and I made a few rookie errors, thankfully they’re only aesthetic. I almost wanted to quickly remake it again, but didn’t because I didn’t want to waste – but I’m spelling them out for you now because I want you to do better than I did. Firstly, when I cooked mine in a bundt tin and I overdid it when I was greasing and flouring the tin. It didn’t change the flavour, but it didn’t look as beautiful as I wanted. So I’d say forget the flour, grease only. Secondly, once the cake is cooked you’ll want to poke it with holes. But you won’t want to go all crazy like I did and grab the nearest instrument {chopsticks in my case!} and poke holes. It made my cake less pretty. I’d use a smaller skewer to poke next time around.

See? Ugly holes and flour. Rookie error.

I made my cake in the Thermomix because I gave away my stand mixer {and have regretted it ever since}. If you have a Thermomix, use that, if not just use your stand mixer or beaters. You’ll want to beat for a while to give it the love it needs, so you can give the cake the height it deserves.

The beauty of poking in the holes and pouring over the glaze means the cake is moist, proper moist… and while some cakes might be a bit ordinary the day after, this one still delivers… perhaps even better than on the day of baking. You decide.

Ingredients

250g butter, at room temperature
440g {2 cups} sugar
4 free-range eggs
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
390g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
260g {1 cup} buttermilk

GLAZE:
85g butter
165g {3/4 cup} white sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method

1. Preheat your fan-forced oven to 180ÂșC. Grease a bundt tin with butter. Set aside.
2. Place all of the cake ingredients into your Thermomix bowl, with the butterfly attachment and mix on speed 4 for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides. Mix for a further 2 minutes on speed 8.
3. Pour the mix into the tin and bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer poked into the middle comes out clean.
4. Once the cake is cooked, quickly make the delicious butter glaze. Place all of the glaze ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until completely melted. Make sure the mix doesn’t boil.
5. Poke holes all over the cake while still warm, and pour the glaze over slowly.
