Why is the method different for making butter cakes in your Thermomix?
A little while ago I developed a class for Thermomix consultants to explain the chemistry behind making butter cakes. I offered this class because of what I found in Bake Club. I had no idea that some TM owners actually preferred to pull out their stand mixers to make cakes and not use their Thermomix. Having tried a few of their old favourites and found they didn’t work in the Thermomix, it’s understandable that they stopped using it.
After running Bake Club I understand why.
Some of you are veteran cake makers and completely understand how your stand mixers work, and others are just really good at following conventional method instructions. If you stick to these conventional methods and try to do the same thing in your Thermomix you’ll have problems. Following this method can be a little hit and miss, to say the least. In turn, you lose confidence in your TM for making cakes and opt to pull out your stand mixer.
Most of the cakes we make today are butter cakes. If you understand the process, you won’t need to read the recipe method. They’re that easy once you understand. I have developed some simple ways to explain the chemistry behind making cakes. It’s definitely not hard and it totally makes sense when you know what each stage should look and feel like.
