Kane spent the entire summer embroiled in a will-hell transfer saga as Bayern negotiated with Tottenham.
He dramatically left his boyhood club ahead of the Premier League season in a £104m move, making his Bayern debut on the same day.
The former Spurs man went into today’s game having scored four goals in four games for the German top flight – with another goal coming in the Champions League against Manchester United.
He then launched a rebellion against lowly Bochum, putting them to the sword in clinical fashion.
Bayern took a 1-0 lead through Kane’s strike partner Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting after just four minutes.
It didn’t take long for the 30-year-old to get on the scoresheet, making it 2-0 after 12 minutes with a low strike.
He could have added another moments later, but missed the shot horribly over the bar.
It didn’t matter though, with efforts from Matthijs de Ligt and Leroy Sane making it 4-0 by half-time.

Kane got his second just nine minutes into the second half, sweeping home a 54th-minute penalty in signature fashion.
Wonderkid Mathys Tel made it 6-0 nine minutes from time, before Kane sealed his hat-trick from close range to make it seven in the process.
According to the German definition of a hat-trick, Kane did NOT score any today.
This is because they define a hat-trick as three consecutive goals in a match.
As Kane’s treble was interrupted by goals from his team-mates, it does not count under the Bundesliga definition.
After the match, Kane posted a picture of himself with the match ball.
He wrote: “New to the collection!”
Earlier this week, Thomas Tuchel questioned the impact of his new signing.
He said: “It’s a big thing, we’ve got the England skipper out of England.
“Anyone looking for a No.9 would be happy to have Harry in the team.
“He makes the team better and gives you what you want from a man.
“He can drop deep, turn, use the speed of the players around him, he can get into the penalty area at the right moment, he is an excellent finisher and a good penalty taker.
“I’m not sure what’s going on at other clubs, but we’re more than happy that he finally made a decision and came to make us better.”
