      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and prepare 20 muffin cases.
    Toss apple pieces with Cointreau and set aside.
    Add oil, milk, 2 whole eggs, orange zest and vanilla to TM bowl. Mix 3sec/spd4.
    Add flour, caster sugar, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix 5sec/spd4/.
    Transfer 1 cup of the batter to a bowl and mix in remaining 2 tablespoons of flour.
    To the remaining batter in the TM bowl, add 2 egg yolks and mix 3sec/spd4.
    Add apple pieces to batter in TM bowl and mix 5sec/spd2/.
    Spoon apple batter into muffin cases until 1/2 full. Make sure apple pieces are covered with batter.
    Top with the reserved thicker batter (approx. 1 tablespoon per muffin).
    Combine extra tablespoon of caster sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to create cinnamon sugar. Sprinkle over muffins.
    Bake 20 minutes at 180°C or until golden on top and an inserted skewer comes out clean.


Modified from Apple cinnamon custard cake. I find muffins to be more versatile and easy to freeze for snacks.
