Thermomix Chocolate Cake Recipe

School holidays has seen me baking a lot. The weather here has been… not-so-awesome, so we’ve been inside and trying to keep the kids occupied. Sometimes cake just works. I went searching for a Thermomix Chocolate Cake Recipe, and found this one over on the community website. I love how big and luscious it is on the outside, and how moist it is on the inside. It’s a winner recipe.

For the icing I just made my own out of butter, icing sugar and cocoa, but you can use this recipe if you don’t feel like winging it.

Thermomix Chocolate Cake Recipe


170g softened butter
265g brown sugar

  • Holy crap this looks good. Wish I wasn’t such a stickler about sugar and wheat… maybe I’ll have to let it slide and call it a pregnancy excuse! Your icing is ALWAYS so decadent!

  • Yum!! This looks delicious. I’m adding this one to my list of Thermomix recipes to try.

  • There’s no such thing as too much chocolate cake and this one looks delicious!

  • Heyam

    That looks awesome! Can you please share the icing recipe? It looks yummy.

    • Honestly, I just wing it because I’ve been doing it for years. One day soon I’ll measure and share. 🙂

  • Lisa | Mummy Made.It

    We usually bake a lot on the holidays but it’s been too hot to even turn the oven on! Instead we’ve been experimenting with icecream flavours.

  • Justine Stevensen

    This cake is delicious. Just what I was looking for. Simple, moist and it rises beautifully. Thanks for sharing.

    How come you write your liquid ingredients as grams instead of mls?.. That’s confusing to me!

    • When you cook with a Thermomix it weighs the ingredients so you don’t have to measure them. So if you see a Thermomix recipe, that’s what it will have. 🙂

  • Jo

    Hi might be a stupid question but just wondering if you use fan forced oven?

    • Not stupid at all! Yes, I used fan-forced. x

        Thanks Chantelle! Sorry, didn’t see this reply for some reason when I asked my question…baking in the oven right now…top has cracked a lot but lucky it will all be covered in buttercream icing anyway 🙂

  • Danni Tan

    Hi Chantelle, in the middle of making this cake right now and have the same question as Jo – is 160 °c based on a fan forced oven?

  • meandtheyoung

    I love that this recipe comes up in the ‘dinner ideas’ search button. Good enough. Dinner sorted haha

    • Oh dear God. Maybe it’s telling us something. Cake is OK for dinner. Who can argue with that?

      • meandtheyoung

        Not me. At least the kids would eat their dinner for a change…

  • Annie
