    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.

Make sure the scones are packed closely together on the baking tray before baking so that they rise beautifully.

    These were very tasty with some jam & cream - yes, I made one batch, some with & without dates. I’ve never made scones before & I left them in the oven longer than I should (got distracted!) so they’ve now got a nice crunchy top & bottom 😄 Will definitely make again though.
