Make in batches for freezing (up to 3 months) or serve on an abundant Christmas platter.
Cinnamon Rolls come in many shapes and sizes, and vary in name and serving suggestions dependent on where you're eating them. Originally from Scandinavian cuisines where they top theirs with a thin, white icing to moisten the dough and compliment the cinnamon. In North America they opt for a more viscous, cream cheese based vanilla frosting – much more substantial! Wherever they are, they are hugely popular, and of course inspired this Thermomix recipe. Carve out about 3 hours for this recipe as the dough is leavened and needs to prove 3 times. Perfect for Sunday afternoons!
This wonderfully simple Thermomix Cinnamon Tea Cake recipe is, as it suggests, the perfect bite to share with a cup of tea.

The result is a comforting, fragrant cake that is great for those who are much less partial to saccharine desserts with oodles of icing. All of these ingredients should already be in your pantry, so you won't have to hunt them down in the shops, or even leave your house! If you have any leftover by the end, you can freeze it for up to 2 months.

Who said that elegance had to be hard won? Certainly not this Thermomix Chocolate Tart – that is, if a tart could speak. Its indulgent flavors and chic aesthetic really suggest a lot more time, effort and technicality that you will not find in this recipe.

Probably the most iconic of all cakes, Sponge Cake with Jam and Cream really does take the crown for how regal and visually pleasing it is. We couldn't have a collection that paid homage to simplicity and deliciousness without including a recipe for the classic sponge! The secret to executing this cake well is extracting your halves in wholes (tongue twister) from their tins; so never forget the following steps. Grease and line your tins, never overfill them (turn spare batter into cupcakes) and once finished, let them cool for 5 minutes right out of the oven, and then on to a wire rack.
