Thermomix Testimonial..........14th August, 2012

Here is a great testimony from one of my happy customers, thanks for sharing a small snippet of your journey so far!  I'm thrilled the Thermomix has been such an asset to your household......

The Thermomix has changed the way we cook and shop. 

To my surprise we have not bought a loaf of bread since it arrived. 

We also have cut down on take-away food and eating out (including my husband buying his lunch everyday) because the food we cook at home is just as tasty and easy to make than buying it prepared. 

We eat healthier and fresher than we ever have! 

Our favorite dish in our Thermomix is butter chicken and homemade naan! 

Great savings in not buying lunch every day.....and wow, never having bought a loaf of bread's been a few months now!  Well done!  

Eating healthier and fresher is always the BEST part about selling Thermomix, I love that my customers can see and experience this change!

Mr Bean's Chocolate Cake

Got this from a friend and tried it out today, it was great!  Kids would not even know it was made with no flour and stacked full of beans.....I still think it's quite funny really.....I mean i've done the good old beetroot cake and could understand that, but this one, with no flour and a whole can of beans.....CLASSIC!  Will be making it again for sure. 

400g/420g kidney beans, canned drained
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
70 g cocoa powder
1 teaspoon GF baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
125 g Butter
5 eggs
180 g sugar
Puree beans with the water, 1 egg and vanilla on Speed 5 for 20 seconds (scrape and redo a bit longer if necessary) You want a nice smooth consistency.  SET ASIDE
Add the butter and sugar, Speed 4 for 30 seconds 
Add the remaining eggs, Speed 4 for 20 seconds 

Add bean mixture, Speed 5 for 10 seconds

Add the cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and  mix a bit by hand to help incorporate anything stuck on the sides then - Speed 4 for 10 seconds.

Pour batter into greased ring tin pan and bake 180 degree oven for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.   

If you like cover with icing......I will be packing it for school lunches so don't ever do icing....but if you're serving at home, icing would go beautifully!
