Coconut Butter Cake – from Thermomix Everyday Cookbook

Coconut Butter Cake

This is my version of the Thermomix recipe. I have substituted:

* For the “self-raising flour”, I have used brown-rice self-raising flour

* and instead of sugar, I have used liquid stevia


Liquid Stevia to taste (I use 16 drops but I am a sweet tooth)

100g fresh coconut or 70g desiccated coconut

250g butter, softened

4 eggs

250g self-raising flour

40g freshly-squeezed orange or lemon juice (approx 1 orange or lemon)

50g full-cream milk



Preheat oven to 180 degrees C

Lightly grease and line a 20x30cm cake tin with baking paper. Set aside

Add fresh coconut flesh (if using) to mixing bowl and mill 15sec/speed 9

Add butter and stevia and mix 30sec/speed 5

With blades rotating on speed 4, add eggs one at a time through hole in mixing bowl lid

Add flour, citrus juice, desiccated coconut (if using) and milk and mix 20sec/speed 5

Pour batter into prepared cake tin and bake 40 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool in tin for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before serving

If you wish, add your choice of icing
