Thermomix Recipe of the Year!
Oh, I am sooo proud!! Last year – 2011, I won recipe of the year for a recipe that I put up on the Thermomix Recipe Community. It is a great resource for both owners & non owners, written by Consultants and customers alike sharing their recipes online. The recipe scored over 9000 hits in 3 months!! Wow, who could have imagined!
The Magic Bean cake is gluten-free AND nut free and came about as I was wanting to cook a cake for a friend who was both GF & NF and couldnt find anything that was one without the other. I first started using besan flour (this was pre-TM) and was adding heaps of water to reconstitute it and then had a “light bulb” moment and used canned beans! The recipe CAN be dairy free as well if you use olive oil or ghee instead of butter. I have posted the recipe below or you can visit here to see my other Recipe community posts.
