The Best Apple Cake Ever!!

The Best Apple Cake Ever!!

My hubby loves apple pie and apple cake and I have made many different recipes for him over the years. However he pronounced this recipe the best one ever, which is the highest compliment there is. I used the recipe from Darren Purchese’s cookbook – Lamingtons and Lemon Tart, the original recipe came from his wife Cath and her Mum. It’s almost like a pie because there is such a thick layer of apple filling. YUM!!! Plus the recipe included a recipe for a wicked vanilla bean custard!! Just perfect to make in the Thermomix of course. I even bought the pink lady apples from the Huon Valley – one of our famous apple growing areas in Tassie.

What’s so cool about the new model 6 Thermomix?

What’s so cool about the new model 6 Thermomix?

Meet my model 6 Thermomix called Sixier.

It’s the new kid on my kitchen bench the Thermomix model 6 & yes I’ve got 2 already!! You don’t need 2 but it just helps me do my job so well (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it LOL) I’m slowly testing out all the new things to let you know all about them and I will update this post as I go. The best way to check it out is to book a Thermomix Cooking Experience so you can see and taste it all for yourself. See the menu options on the previous post.

Anyway some of the new features and functions the new Thermomix has to offer are wowing off my customers socks !!!
It has a bigger screen and you can log directly into cookidoo to start guided cooking straight away. There are new slow cook & sous vide function available too. The new MC that locks in & the new flexible spatula are very popular. Within guided recipes to you can access higher temperatures for sauteing or sugar work for things like honeycomb (I don’t actually like it but I’ve made it a few times now)

Lasagna is the perfect meal to prepare ahead, not only will it’s flavour develop and it will taste better. It’s also a great thing to have in the freezer for a delicious quick and easy week night dinner. It really pays to go to the extra trouble of mincing your own meat and making fresh pasta sheets. YUM!!
