  • Thermomix
  • Rectangular cake tin, minimum 25 x 19 x 5 cm (mine was Pyrex)


  • 4 eggs
  • 300 g sugar

    I used caster, feel free to experiment with different types and report back

  • 200 g unsalted butter
  • 200 ml single cream
  • 400 g

    plain flour

  • 3 teaspoon baking powder 16 g if you want to be exact
  • Brown sugar enough to sprinkle on top, think a couple of tablespoons


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC
  • Add to the bowl 4 eggs, 300 g sugar, 200g unsalted butter: 5 minutes, 50ºC, speed 3.5.
  • Add the 200 ml single cream: 10 seconds, speed 3.5.
  • Add 400 g plain flour and 16 g baking powder: hit turbo 5 times.
  • Place mixture in a big mould as described above, typically a rectangular mould is used.
  • Sprinkle with a brown sugar and place in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes. Check that it’s fully baked by inserting a with a skewer or similar in the centre, when it comes out clean, it’s ready.
  • Let it cool down and serve cut into squares or rectangles like in the photos, it’s the traditional way.


This is a big cake so make sure you use either a big mould or two. I
used a large rectangular pyrex dish (25 cm x 19 cm x 5 cm), which turned out to be too small, it still turned out great) and it pulled right out when ready but you can prepare it straight into a disposable foil tin for example if you are taking somewhere.
