thermomix thermie thursday

Welcome to another edition of Thermie Thursday!!!  I’m so sorry that I missed last weeks post.  I had every intention of posting it, but were away on a family camping holiday.  Not only did I loose track of the days (which is a good thing on holiday right?) but there was limited internet and it just wasn’t happening for me!!  The old man in the camper van next door saw me stressing over my laptop and asked what I was so worried about.  I told him that I really really had to publish a piece of writing on THURSDAY (which was almost over) and he replied “Is it really the end of the world if you don’t?” I stopped for a second, looked around and thought, “you know what – it really isn’t!”  So I shut my laptop and that was that!

Anyway back to the recipes.  I decided to make Baby Mac’s famous chocolate ‘Anne’ cake with Miss L yesterday.  It’s one of Beth’s mums recipes and after she posted it on her blog it went viral.  There were loads of delicious ‘Anne’s’ popping up all over the internet.  I decided to copy it EXACTLY as I didn’t want to be the only person with a failed ‘Anne’.  I converted the measurements for the thermomix, but you can find the her original post here.   Baby Mac chocolate anne cake Baby Mac chocolate anne cake in the thermomix 3 Baby Mac chocolate anne cake

While we’re on the subject of sweet things, has anyone tried Quirky Cooking’s coconut caramel custard??  Oh my goodness, it is totally to die for!!!  I make it all the time, which is probably why my diets never work.  On the plus side it’s kind of healthy I think!!

When were camping we ate A LOT of hotdogs.  There is nothing better than barbecued snags in fresh hotdog buns.  My kids would eat them every single day given half the chance. I found this recipe for heathy hot dog rolls on Thermoblitz and tried it out this week.  They were delicious and oh so easy to make.   thermomixHealthyHotDogRolls

For anyone that has just bought a Thermomix, or if (like me) you just like lists, this post from ‘The road to loving my Thermomix has got everything you need to know to get you started.

That’s it from me this week.  If anyone has any cool recipes they would like me to feature please let me know.  Also if there is something that you’d like me to make or find out, give me a yell too.

See you next week.  Happy ‘mixing

  1. I have shared and just printed out the Anne to make this afternoon with the kids. I have been eyeing off this recipe but now that you did the conversion for me I can’t wait to try it.

    • Hope it turned out ok??? I put ours in the fridge and it was even better cold the next day!! xx

  2. I love how this recipe keeps popping up everywhere – such a fun thing to see.

    My what a gorgeous happy little helper you have – so much beautiful mess when kids get involved in the cooking!

    Maybe I can make the gluten & lactose free version of ‘Anne’! xx

  3. I made the Anne cake today for my son’s 10th Birthday Party. It was a huge hit and so easy to make. Thankyou so much for converting to Thermomix.
