On the ThermoFunkies Club Members Facebook group someone asked me if I could convert a Wagon Wheel Slice recipe to be made in the Thermomix. Well I could hardly say no now could I?! This is a fairly close result to a commercial bought one!
- 60g butter, unsalted, cubed
- 60g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 210g plain flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- pinch salt
- 1 cup raspberry jam (approx.)
- 3 tsp gelatine powder
- ½ cup water
- 200g caster sugar
- 1 tsp ThermoFun Vanilla Bean Paste
- 200g dark chocolate melts
- 20g coconut oil
- Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 3cm-deep, 16cm x 26cm slice tin. Line base and sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm from edge on all sides.
- If using raw sugar for the caster sugar mill it at this point (while you have a dry clean bowl) and set aside.
- Place butter into TM bowl and melt 40 sec / 50°C / speed 4.
- Add sugar and egg and mix 30 sec / speed 4. Scrape down.
- Add flour, baking powder and salt and mix 10 sec / speed 4. Scrape down and repeat.
- Press mixture into prepared tin. Bake 15 mins or until golden.
- Spread warm base with jam.
- Meanwhile, soak gelatine in ½ cup of water (approx. 10 mins).
- After gelatine has soaked, place into TM bowl with sugar and dissolve 3 mins / 60°C / speed 1.
- Continue dissolving 3 mins / 100°C / speed 1.
- Insert butterfly and whip 7 mins / speed 4.
Add vanilla and mix 20 sec / speed 4.
NB: the mixture will still be runny but it will thicken and set in fridge. Pour onto jam layer and refrigerate 45 mins – 1 hour.
- Place chocolate and oil into TM bowl and grate 10 sec / speed 9. Scrape down and melt 3 mins / 50°C / speed 1.
- Scrape down and melt for a further 2 mins / 50°C / speed 1.
- Pour melted chocolate on top of slice.
- Refrigerate 30 mins or until set. Stand at room temperature for 10 mins before cutting.
- Pour a glass of milk into TM bowl and mix 5 sec / speed 8.
- Heat milk 5 mins / 80°C / speed 4.
- Enjoy warm chocolate milk. No wasted chocolate!
To make it easier to cut this without it falling apart , I found it is easier to cut a strip about 5cm wide, then turn that strip on its side and cut it downwards into smaller pieces. Using a VERY sharp knife will also make it easier.
