      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

    Cook Beetroot
  1. Boil whole beetroot/s, unpeeled in water until soft enough to insert a fork. Can take from 30 minutes to an hour depending on size. Allow to cool and then slough off skin. Cut into manageable pieces and refridgerate until needed.
  2. Make cupcakes.
  3. Grate chocolate for 4 seconds on speed 8.
  4. Add sugar and beetroot and mash together for 30-60 seconds on speed 8 until smooth.
  5. Cook for 4 minutes, 90 degrees, speed 1. Then add butter and cook a further 2 minutes, speed 2.
  6. Add vanilla, SR Flour, Baking powder and 2 eggs and mix 15 seconds, speed 4. Scrape down sides and repeat.
  7. Half fill 24 cupcakes and cook for 30 minutes at 160 degrees fan forced or 180 degrees conventional.
