How to make a Thermomix butter cake?
A little while ago I developed a fun class for Thermomix consultants to explain the chemistry behind making a butter cake. I offered this class because of what I found at Bake Club. I had no idea that after having issues some people actually preferred to pull out their stand mixers rather than use their Thermomix. It seems after trying a few of their old favourite recipes they found they didn’t work so well, it’s understandable that they stopped using it. Understanding the chemistry will help you translate these recipes to never want to pull out your stand mixer again.
I know you can find loads of cake recipes written in Thermomix language but if you want to make something different or if you’ve got a recipe that didn’t work, even a Thermomix one. Wouldn’t it be nice to know how to fix it? We all hate wasting our time and money but also it’s deflating to have something not turn out.
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, and what each step is trying to achieve you won’t need to read the recipe method ever again. 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.
