Spotted Cake


Thermomix Tarif Defterim is 2 years old !!

And finally it is time to cut our birthday cake...

I wanted to make a chic and stylish cake special for today.
I found the recipe in the book called as Pazzi per il Cioccolato and adapted it to Thermomix with some modifications. There are many chocolate recipes in the book, I will try to adapt them in the course of time.

It would be just perfect if I just remembered to buy 2 candles, but anyway, we managed somehow ;)

Wish you many many happy days and see you soon with new recipes...

130g butter, softened at room temperature
130g sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
160g strawberry marmalade
170g flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate
60g unsweetened cacao powder
200g buttermilk

Chocolate glaze:
250g white chocolate, broken into pieces
120g butter, cut into pieces
30g cream

50g white chocolate, broken into pieces
100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces

Some more unsweetened cacao to sprinkle with


  • As first thing, grease 22cm cake tin and cover with baking paper.
  • Powderize sugar for 15 seconds on Speed 10.
  • Add butter and vanilla, mix for 3-4 minutes on Speed 3-4.
  • Start Thermomix on Speed 4. Add eggs one at a time through the hole of TM lid.
  • Scrape down the sides with spatula and mix 10 more seconds on Speed 4.

  • Add marmalade and mix for 15 seconds on Speed 4.

  • Sift in flour, baking powder, bicarbonate and cacao.
  • Start Thermomix on Speed 3-4. Pour slowly buttermilk through the hole of TM Lid.
  • Speed up to 5 and mix for 30 seconds.
  • Transfer into cake tin.

  • Bake in preheated oven at 180ºC for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. Let it cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes. (My cake cracked a bit during baking, cracks got smaller after letting it rest in the cake tin)

  • Remove it from cake tin and let it cool. (I turned it upside down so cracked side remained at the bottom) 
  • Grate chocolate for 8 seconds on Speed 8, set aside
  • In a clean TM Bowl place butter and cream. Warm for 3-4 minutes at 70ºC on Speed 3.
  • Add grated chocolate and mix for 1.5-2 minutes on Speed 3-4.
  • Spread it over the cake with spatula and cover the top and the sides.
  • Measure around the cake and also the height, cut a stripe of baking paper accordingly. (If the height is 5cm, cut it 5.5cm, 5mm more) It would be easier to measure before spreading glaze
  • Make ready your paper cone or piping bag.
  • In a clean TM Bowl melt white chocolate for 3 minutes at 50ºC on Speed 2,
  • Fill into your cone or bag, pipe some spots on paper stripe. Let cool.
  • Melt dark chocolate for 4 minutes at 50ºC on Speed 2.
  • Spread it over the stripe as in the picture and cover completely.

  • Wrap chocolate covered stripe around the cake. Wait until the chocolate is firmed.

  • Remove gently and carefully the paper stripe.
  • Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • Right before serving sprinkle with some cacao on the top. (I sprinkled also with a little dessicated coconut to write "2" )

Afiyet olsun...

Bon Appetit!

We took a couple of slices to Domenico and Serenella. Serenella thought we bought it from a pastry shop ;)

Also the slices looked very chic.

Keep in mind this easy cake decoration technique. You can use it also for your preferred cakes and amaze your family and friends.

Adapted from the recipe called Dolce di Marmellata al Cioccolato con Collare a Pois in the book named Pazzi Per il Cioccolato.
