      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

    Making the Shells
  1. 1. Clean and Dry the TM bowl thoroughly. Preheat the oven to 120 degrees celcius and line two baking trays with baking paper.

    2. Mill the sugar for 5 seconds Speed 8 reserve sugar in a side bowl.

    3. Fit Butterfly and add egg whites, cream of tartar and salt. Whip at speed 3.5 for approx 1 minute until soft peaks form.

    4. Leaving the butterfly turning at speed 3.5, slowly add the reserved sugar through the lid over 1.5 minutes.

    5.Continue whipping for 1 minute after adding all the sugar. During this period add the vanilla. 

    6. Slow the TM to speed 1.5 and add 40 grams of shredded coconut through the lid. Stop the TM once all added. Gently fold in the almond meal using the spatula.

    7. Scoop the mix out making nests of 2 heaped teaspoons each on the baking tray. Sprinkle each nest liberally with shedded coconut and then nestle 3 mini eggs into the centre of each nest.

    8.Bake for 1 hour until nests are slightly browned and crispy.
