    This recipe is confusing and could be more clearly written for a TM user. 1. You need to mill the raw sugar to make it into caster sugar 2. Are the yoghurt and cream measurements in TM gram weight or do you measure separately as mls? I measured as mls seperately and the cake has not set properly which is a waste of my time and $. Sorry to be cranky but time is so precious when you have 3 kids!

    • Thanks for your feedback Rachel. I have four children so I know how precious times! This recipe was kindly shared by a former Thermomix consultant and one I haven’t actually made (so many recipes, so little time!) though I know I am safe sharing as Jan is a brilliant cook and I love her food! For the sugar, I don’t think it would make any difference to the loaf as to whether you used caster or raw sugar – I often use raw sugar if I haven’t pre milled the sugar. However I have taken your point on board and have amended this in the recipe. With the yoghurt and cream, I would think the weight would be similar? I have changed the recipe to grams as I am sure Jan probably used grams when using. I also find reducing the heat in the oven and popping foil over the top of the cake one way to set a cake without burning it. Again, thanks for the feedback, its great to be able to consider when others are making x
