Marble cake steam baked in the Thermomix Varoma (yes really!)

The French Thermomix Facebook groups went completely wild for this recipe this weekend and having tried it myself now, I have to say WOW, just WOW!

You have to try it to believe it!

In terms of which mould to use, it seems that pretty much anything goes. Just make sure it fits in your Varoma though.

For gluten-free, replace plain flour by buckwheat

Serves 8

Active time: 10 minutes – Total time: 45 minutes


  • 4 eggs
  • 150g sugar
  • 225g butter, at room temperature
  • 50g milk
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder
  • a few drops of vanilla essence

Let’s go…

  1. Add all the ingredients in the mixing bowl, except the cocoa powder. Mix for 1 minutes / speed 5.
  2. Divide the batter in 2. Add 2 heaped tbsp cocoa powder to the batter remaining in the mixing bowl. Mix for 20 seconds / speed 3.
  3. Take 2 spoons and use them to dollop the chocolate and vanilla cake mixes into the tin alternately. Use a skewer to swirl the mixture around in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect.
  4. Place the tin in the Varoma (careful to leave enough openings for the steam to rise). Fill the mixing bowl with water. Bake 50 minutes / Varoma / Speed 1.

Delicious. Bon appetit x
