      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!

  1. 1. Thoroughly wash and dry TM bowl.

    2. Grease and line a 20cm cake tin, or 2 x 20cm sandwich tins.

    4.  Mill sugar 2 seconds/speed 10 and set aside.

    5. Add egg whites and salt to TM bowl, insert butterfly whisk and mix 30 seconds/speed 3.5 or until egg whites are stiff.

    Great easy recipe. Mine didn't look like the picture, but, I think my cake tin was a 24cm, so was wider,but thinner. I'll be using this again. Thank you
