Two of my favourite things are coffee and cake – so it only made sense to combine them in this easy Thermomix Coffee Cake recipe!
One of my biggest vices (apart from chocolate!) is my slight addiction to coffee – so you can see why this Thermomix Coffee Cake is one of my favourite recipes! Not only does the cake contain coffee, but it’s also in the delicious icing on top.
This is the PERFECT cake recipe to make when you want to make something for visitors or take over to a friends place as a treat. You can also make this Coffee Cake in advance and freeze it un-iced for up to 5 weeks – that is if you can resist it for that long!!
Thermomix Coffee Cake
My Thermomix Coffee Cake recipe is the perfect dessert or afternoon tea treat!
- 125 grams butter
- 220 grams caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp espresso coffee
- 115 grams plain flour
- 75 grams self raising flour
- 90 grams sour cream
- 2 tsp espresso - for the icing
- 150 grams icing sugar - for the icing
- 20 grams melted butter - for the icing
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees and line the base and sides of a 20cm round cake tin with baking paper
Place the butter and caster sugar into your Thermomix bowl and mix for 20 seconds on speed 4.
Place the coffee and vanilla extract into a small bowl and add 1 tablespoon of warm water and mix until the coffee granules have dissolved.
Add eggs, vanillia and coffee mixture, flours and sour cream and mix for 30 seconds on speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 30 seconds on speed 5.
Spoon the cake mixture into your prepared cake tin and gently smooth the surface. Place the cake into the oven and cook for 45 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.
Carefully remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once the cake has cooled, prepare the icing by dissolving the coffee in 1 - 2 tablespoons of warm water before adding to a small bowl with the icing sugar and butter. Mix well until combined and spread over the cooled cake.
