I wonder if anyone can help me as I'm meeting a brick wall on any searches I've done so far. When my children were young, I used to cook a wonderful chocolate cake recipe called 'Rich Moist Chocolate Cake' which I got from a Magimix spiral-bound cookery book called 'Cake Making with Mary Berry'. I think the book originally came free with the Magimix and I understand it was originally published in 1981. As my children grew up and after several house moves, I stopped making cakes and the book got mislaid. And now, my children are grown up with children of their own - and they all want to make that particular chocolate cake! I've tried Amazon and it's out of print, I've tried out-of-print booksellers to no avail, I've tried contacting Magimix and they don't have a copy either.

Is there anyone out reading this board, I wonder, who happens to have a copy of this particular recipe? I recall it had golden syrup as one of the ingredients and the icing was made from cocoa, milk and sieved icing sugar. I'd be delighted if anyone is able to help.

Thank you so much Mands, that looks like the one! You're obviously a lot better at internet searches than me. My daughters will be delighted as they have been trying to find this recipe for a while, too.

I do recall the recipe calling for milk and oil, which is a bit unusual. I think I used to put all the other ingredients into the magimix, then while they were processing, I added the milk and oil together through the funnel. For the icing, I used butter instead of margarine. I melted the butter, stirred in the cocoa, cooked it together for a minute, then away from the heat I added the 3 tbs. milk (otherwise it tended to separate). Then I sieved the icing sugar before adding it.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it always worked out well. I think I'll have a go at making it right now!

Thanks Pete, I feel really irritated with myself now that I shelled out a fiver on ebay for one of Mary Berry's cake books (I think it's called 'Fast Cakes') in the hope that it might contain 'the one' and then realised I could have got it for 1p on Amazon! Never mind though, it looks like I have finally found the right recipe anyway now. I gather Mary Berry has written quite a few cake books so maybe the one you have is a different one? I'd be interested to know, either way so thanks.

This seems to be a friendly board, I haven't posted here before, but will definitely be popping in again. And I'll report back on how my chocolate cake turned out!

I think I will try it too, it sounds brilliant!

And what a response! This is a brilliant board, when Hels can say "I had this brilliant choc cake recipe with golden syrup in it' and Mands comes in with the goods in no time at all. Wow!

I have just bought a new Magimix and was searching my old cookery books and have found the one you were after. It is called Rich Moist Chocolate Cake

6 and half oz Plain Flour
2 level tablespoons Cocoa
1 level tsp bicarb of soda
1 level tsp baking powder
5 oz caster sugar
2 level tablespoons golden syrup
2 large eggs
quart pint salad or corn oil
quart pint milk

Fudge Icing
2 oz butter
4 level tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
5 oz sieved icing sugar

Grease and line two 8 inch sandwich tins, heat oven to 170 deg or gas 3. Using metal blade sift together flour, cocoa, bicarb and baking powder. Add sugar and syrup and then lightly beaten eggs. Put on cover without the white pusher, switch on and pour the oil and milk, mixed, down the funnel into bowl. Mix for further 5 secs after adding all liquid. Turn into the tins and bake 30-35 mins until springy. Leave to cool.

For Icing melt the butter i a pan, add cocoa, stir to blend and cook 1 in. Stir in milk and icing sugar, and mixt to smooth. Leave to cool and thicken. Spread half between the two cakes and the remainder on top, decorate with grated choc or flakes. Enjoy!

Sounds yummy, will give it a go myself.

Sorry to drag up an old thread again but...! My mother is convinced that there was a great recipe for banana bread/cake in this cook book and she can't find a copy anywhere. I don't suppose any kind soul with a copy might have a moment to have a look? I'm sure my mother would be eternally grateful (and me too as I'll be eating it)!

Hi All

I too have a similar recipe search from my Mum's Magimix book - which has been mislaid over the years.

I have made a courgette cake a few times (using veg oil) and it was one of the best cakes that I ever made in the Magimix - can anyone please help by providing this recipe if they are lucky to have an original recipe book from the mid to late 80's?


Many thanks for your time and help.


Scott

My greatest regret is losing my Mary Berry recipe book for Magimix cakes during a move - but many thanks for posting the chocolate recipe, It is quite perfect!

I can't bring myself to pay £40 plus for what was originally a free book although I know each recipe is excellent.

I don't suppose you have the recipe for the Lemon Drizzle Cake do you, please?

I have found my cake making experiences with my Magimix using other recipes just not successful.

By the way - I used to convert the above into tray bakes of chocolate squares which were always successful with children - and helped to make it last longer.

Crunchy Lemon Squares
4 oz Soft Margarine
6 oz SR Flour
1 level tsp baking powder
6 oz caster sugar
2 large eggs
4 tbsp milk
finely grated rind of 1 lemon

Icing
Juice of 1 lemon
4 oz granulated sugar

makes about 12 squares

heat oven to 350 F 180 C or gas 4
Grease and line bottom of oblong tin 7 x 9 x 1 inch with greased greaseproof paper.
Using Metal knife. Put all ingredients into bowl and process slowly for 10 seconds. Remove cover and scrape sides down. Replace cover and process further 5 seconds. Turn mixture into prepared tin and smooth the top. Bake in centre of oven for about 50 mins. or until cake pale golden and slightly shrunk from sides of tin and springy when pressed with finger in centre. While cake is baking stir together the lemon juice and sugar for icing. Spoon over hot cake then leave to cool. Cut into squares.

if you google Mary Berry Lemon drizzle cake, you will get plenty of hits. Have a look through to see which one looks like the recipe you remember.
