Almond Cake with White Chocolate Topping

Recipe by Cookidoo for Thermomix, adapted by AnnabelCourse: Sweet TreatsCuisine: BritishDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 100 g butter, plus extra for greasing

  • 150 g dark chocolate, small pieces

  • 4 medium eggs

  • 130g caster sugar

  • 130g ground almonds

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • White Chocolate Topping
  • 150g white chocolate, small pieces

  • 50g water

  • 50g butter


  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a spring form flan tin (approx. 22 cm).
  • Place dark chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a simmering pan of water and melt. When all melted give it a good stir.
  • Add eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl and mix well.
  • Mix the almonds and baking powder together and then add to eggs and sugar mix one tablespoon at a time.
  • Fold in the butter and chocolate mix.
  • Pour into baking tin and bake for 30 mins or until the cake is coming away from side of tin and it is cooked all the way through. I use a simple cake thermometer and when I poke the centre of the cake it should come out bright red.
  • Leave in tin to cool for 10 minutes and then place on wire rack.
  • To make white chocolate topping
  • Place chocolate and water in a heatproof bowl over a simmering pan of water until chocolate has melted.
  • Take off heat and add the butter to the mix and stir well.
  • Pour over the cooled cake.
  • Place cake in refrigerator to cool for 2 hours.


  • This is a recipe that I prepare in my Thermomix before baking. I have tried to convert the recipe but you may need to watch the baking time and adapt.
