Baking Cakes in Mr. D’s Thermal Cooker

  • BAKE: 40
  • SERVES: 6


Wright’s cakes are made similarly with less of the mix i.e. 300g of the mix and 120ml of water + 40ml of oil.

We have been experimenting using Mr. D’s Thermal Cooker, which can save up to 80% on cooking costs and it is ideal for those of you out and about this summer. With just 10 minutes spent in the morning Mr D’s eco-friendly thermal cooker can produce a hot meal in the evening and it won’t be burnt even if you are a little late! You will find that you use the cooker most days for your bread, cakes, soups, meals and puddings.

Cut a parchment (baking paper) base lining for the bread tin within the Thermal cooker.
Grease the tin, and the lid itself then place the cut out parchment into the base.
Mix the cake into a batter and pour into the greased tin. Put on the lid and place the tin into the inner pot on a trivet.
Pour in boiling water until the water comes about 3/4 of the way up the side of the tin.
Put the inner pot on a heat source and bring back to the boil.
Once boiling, turn the heat down so the water is gently simmering. Simmer for 35 -40 minutes with the inner pot lid on.
Turn off the heat and place the inner pot into the insulated outer container.
Shut the lid and leave to thermal cook without power for a minimum of six hours. It can be left overnight if easier.
Once cooked remove the tin from the inner pot and carefully take off the lid.
Leave for a few minutes then run a knife carefully around the edge of the cake and turn out onto a rack.

Deb's Tips

Our cake mixes turned out wonderfully moist and left us crying for custard with it. Our Ginger cake kept for weeks wrapped in foil or film! Deb the Bread
