Incredibly Easy Cake Everyone Will LOVE

Incredibly Easy Cake Everyone Will LOVE

When  a recipe starts with “put all ingredients in bowl” there is a very good chance it is going to get tried out in my kitchen. Today’s little winner is the Bimby Chocolate Cake. I only have one picture of it as it is so easy to make, it was prepped, baked and half-eaten before I had a chance to whip out my camera.

The other great thing about this recipe is the fact that the it makes either one big cake, two loaf-sized or loads of cupcakes. Today I made two. It is a thermomix recipe but any half decent food processor or a Kitchen Aid will cope with this. I have converted the amounts of everything to suit either. Just make sure your butter is very soft if you’re not using a thermomix. And use nice proper butter.

You can leave out the cacao and make a plain vanilla cake if you like, or throw in some finely grated orange peel for a Jaffa effect (I’ve done this and it is very good). Too easy.

Bimby Chocolate Cake

170g (3/4 cup) soft, good butter
4 eggs
250g (1 cup) milk
300g (1 1/4 cups) self raising flour
370g (1 1/2 cups) raw sugar
40g (3 tbs) cocoa/cacao powder
1 good splosh vanilla

Put all ingredients in bowl. Mix at a good speed for a minute (TMX sp6 1min). Bake for 45 mins at 180 degrees celsius in two tins or about an hour in one big tin.

Thanks to the wonderful Forum Thermomix for this one and especially to forum her “I Love Bimby” who kindly let me republish this here.

I did make a version of this recipe and simply left out the cocoa/cacao and it was just as good. I never got around to icing it before it was gobbled up:

Just for fun – here’s a photo of Tendercrisp doing what she does when out free ranging:

  1. Ok that cake is dangerously good.
    I only had 2 eggs so just halved the recipe and made a loaf tin size cake. Put all the ingredients into the food processor ( all while I was having a conversation with mum!)
    And “da da hey presto ” a beautiful moist chicly cake 40 mins later.
