Thermomix Almond, Cinnamon and Walnut Cake

Here is another shared recipe, this time from Gail, one of our beautiful Group Leaders. Gail kindly brought this cake for us to share at our last meeting and we were all begging for the recipe. Sorry no photo, we ate it too quick, though I will make this cake one day soon and hopefully get around to remembering to post a photo for you! If you beat me to it I would love to see your photos!

Almond Cinnamon and Walnut Cake

160g butter – room temperature
220g sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
125g almonds
160g SR flour
1/2 teaspoon Bi-carb soda
200ml thickened cream
150g walnuts*
1 teaspoon cinnamon*
2 tablespoons sugar*

Method (TM31)
Firstly grind the almonds for 10 seconds on speed 8 – set aside.

Then grind the walnuts, sugar and cinnamon for 10 seconds on speed 6 and set aside (ingredients marked *).

Place the butter and sugar into the Thermomix with the butterfly and beat for 2 minutes on speed 3 until thick and creamy.
Remove the butterfly and while beating on speed 3 add the eggs one at a time through the hole in the lid.
Scrape down the sides and add the vanilla, almonds, flour, bicarb and cream and beat for 20 seconds on speed 6.

Place half of this mixture into a 23cm buttered torte tin, then sprinkle over half of the walnut/cinnamon mix. Top (spooning over carefully in lumps then pushing to cover) the rest of the cake mix, and top with the remainder of the walnut mixture.

Bake at 180 for about an hour. Let cool for 10 minutes, remove the collar from the cake, and drizzle over 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar mixed with the juice of 1/2 an orange.

It will last for a week (if given the chance!)

    Hi Simone What a lovely surprise to hear from you and the cake recipe sounds great. I will certainly try that one day. Thanks again Love Maxine

  2. What is a ‘torte tin’ ?

  3. Susie Ccordia says:

    Dear Simone
    I am confused! Step 2 says bring the sugar with the cinnamon and walnuts but then Step 3 says cream the butter and sugar and the last step says to use 1-1/2 tablespoons to drizzle over. Can you help please?.
    Regards
    Susie

    • Hi Susie, thanks for your query. Looking at the recipe there are two different amounts of sugar listed in the ingredients – one for the actual cake and one for the syrup to be drizzled over. To try to make it clearer I have marked the syrup ingredients * to differentiate. While I haven’t made this cake as yet I have most certainly eaten it and it was lovely!! Hope you enjoy xx

    Sorry should be “grind” not “bring”!
