Thermomix Pecan and Blueberry cake TM6

This is a really delicious cake to make in your Thermomix for summer when blueberries are at their best.  It’s really easy to make and the crumb topping with pecans gives a yummy crunch on top. It can be tricky to get out of the cake tin – wait for it to cool before turning it upside down.

Crumb topping

  1. Preheat oven 175. Grease a round cake tin (8 in.) and set aside. A spring form tin would be good so you don’t have to turn the cake over.
  2. Place sugar, brown sugar, butter, flour, cinnamon, salt, ginger and nutmeg into mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 4.
  3. Scrape down sides of mixing bowl with spatula. Add pecans and mix a further 5 sec/speed 4 

Cake

  1. Place yogurt, oil, sugar, vanilla, eggs, 215g flour (the other 15g will coat the blueberries), baking powder, bicarb soda, salt and nutmeg into Thermomix mixing bowl and mix 15 sec/speed 4.
  2. Place a bowl onto mixing bowl lid, weigh in  blueberries and 15g flour and toss together to coat.
  3. Stir 3/4 of the blueberries through the batter and transfer half the batter into prepared cake pan, sprinkle with half the crumb topping, add remaining blueberries and then the remaining batter and top off with the remaining crumb topping.
  4. Bake 55 minutes (175C) or until skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
    Cool completely before slicing.
    Garnish with fresh blueberries and serve.
