Ever since seeing this recipe from Donna Hay on Not Quite Nigella’s website (http://www.notquitenigella.com/2011/04/12/the-ultimate-easy-one-bowl-chocolate-cake/) I have been wanting to make it. If it was easy without a Thermomix, imagine how easy it would be with a Thermomix! And easy it was…as well as delicious. I’m pleased to report that the whole family loved this one…as did the next door neighbour’s family!
The Ultimate One-Bowl Chocolate Cake
125 g butter, chopped
375 g dark chocolate (best quality), chopped
175 g brown sugar
35 g plain flour
30 g milk
120 g almonds
1 tablespoon cocoa, for dusting
Preheat the oven to 160˚C and line a 21-22 cm round baking tin with baking paper.
Place almonds in Thermomix bowl and mill for 10 seconds on Speed 10. Set aside.
Without cleaning, place chocolate in the TM bowl and mill for 10 seconds on Speed 8. Add the butter and melt with chocolate for 3 minutes on Speed 3 at 50˚C.
Once melted, add the sugar, flour, milk and almond meal into the bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 3. With blades still running, add eggs one at a time and mix for a further 5 seconds for each egg.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin and cover with a sheet of foil. Bake for 60 minutes or until the inside is set and not wobbling. Remove the foil and cool in the tin. Dust with cocoa and serve with cream.
