      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!

Accessories you need



These are great to freeze.

1. To make buttermilk, put milk in a cup with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then use as per recipe.

2. This recipe make a large amount of batter to ensure the cups can be filled high (cafe style). Therefore I recommend using cafe style muffin liners as they allow for more batter.

3. Rice Bran Oil can be substituted for neutral oil of choice (e.g. sunflower oil or coconut oil).
