Beating eggs, oil and sugar in the Thermomix
« on: May 07, 2014, 01:42:36 pm »
I want to make a cake where I need to beat eggs, olive oil and sugar until it goes thick and creamy. In the old days I would have used an electric whisk and it would have taken about 3 minutes. What's the best way to get a similar result in the Thermomix, do you think? I imagine the butterfly would be best, but I'm not exactly sure at what speed and for how long? Any tips and tricks greatly appreciated!

Hi TAT, I rarely cook cake but have you tried this method below from Bron.  She says

"I only use butter or sunflower oil for cake making! Most of the recipes that I have seem to use the technique of whisking eggs with sugar first with butterfly for 5 mins (no higher than speed 4) and then add oil or melted butter. Try that instead of trying to cream butter and sugar, cream the sugar without the butter (if you know what I mean!) "

I would do butterfly, speed 4 for 2 mins then check it.  If needed go again for another minute

I would do what snappy suggested. Butterfly speed 4. My carrot cake recipe does the egg, oil and sugar for 15secs, scrape and 15secs again http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=13297.0

Thank you lovely ladies. I used the butterfly for 3 minutes, scraping down every minute. The cake looks good but the proof will be in the eating. If it works well, I'll post the recipe! Watch this space!

Hi ladies

I came across this post whilst researching creaming sugar and eggs for a carrot cake recipe I was converting.

I milled the sugar and then inserted the whisk and added the eggs. Spd 3 Temp 37 for 3 minutes. THEN, added the oil and did another three minutes spd 3 only. ( Don't think I needed to do the second time as long)
Let me tell you all, this carrot cake rose the highest it has ever done in all the years that I have made it. The result was scrumptiously delicious. So worth researching and getting a fabulous result. I hope it helps..
Just wanted to share with you all..
