Carrot and Pineapple Cake Thermomix Recipe

Gracie Neal is a chip off the ol’ block. Having taken to the Thermomix like a duck to water, she’s constantly experimenting on new recipes and adapting old ones. This 11yo can cook!

She adapted a recipe seldom shared. Hand written in our nondescript, but prized folder that holds all the family cooking secrets. This one is her gift to the ‘Skinnymixers’ family. The Carrot, Pineapple & Walnut Cake with Lemon Cheesecake Icing is a delicious afternoon tea or dessert favourite.

It’s equally popular as a morning tea snack sans the icing, instead spread some butter and a cup of tea. We hope you like it as much as our family has. 

Enjoy Grant & Gracie
