Thermomix banana & blueberry cake

 

Blueberry banana cake Thermomix recipe

Another rainy and cold Saturday afternoon here in the UK usually means a spot of Thermomix baking in this house. 

This is not only one of the most delicious Thermomix cake recipes we have had the pleasure to make with a little help of Momo the Thermomix, it is also one of the easiest. 

5 minutes = cake made, ingredients & kitchen tidied and Thermomix bowl cleaned. It's also perfect for using up those very ripe bananas in the fruit bowl!

One of the twins wanted banana cake, the other a blueberry cake – so how about combining the 2? 

The result: a tender, warming, golden loave, a divine smell throughout the house and some very happy children! 

This deliciously moist loaf cake is best served still warm in my opinion.

Note: we've just tried a raspberry version and this was even better in my opinion. The sharpness of the raspberry mixed with the sweetness of the vanilla & banana cake made for a superb combination.

  1. Oh my gosh, my boys would be all over this! Bananas and blueberries are some of their absolute favorite fruits! I don’t have a thermomix, but have a stand mixer so may try to mix it all up with that.

    • I am sure it’ll work just as well! I hope your boys enjoy the cake as much as my girls do!

    • Exactly the same here. Either blueberry or banana but never both together until a week or so ago. It’s yum! Well worth s try. Enjoy
