      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

    Chop chestnuts speed 5 for 4 seconds and set aside.

    Add all other ingredients and mix15 seconds speed 5.  Add reserved chestnuts and mix speed 4 for 4 seconds. 

    Spoon mix into the cupcake liners and bake 12 to 15 minutes until cooked. Cool before icing.

  2. Chestnut Buttercream
  3. Mix chestnut cream,icing sugar and butter speed 5 for 5 seconds, add milk and mix again speed 5 for 5 seconds to get a smooth icing that can be piped. Add more milk if needed.

    Pipe or spread on the cupcakes. 



I was given a jar of Bonne Maman chestnut cream and decided to use in a chestnut cupcake recipe I found as a substitute for:

3/4 cup sour cream, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup chestnut puree. 

So if you have chestnut puree rather than the sweetened chestnut cream, use those 3 ingredients above instead.
