      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

    Dairy Free Milk of choice - Buy OR Make from scratch
  1. Buy OR even better make approx 300-600ml of Dairy Free Milk of choice - ie Coconut, Rice, Soy or Almond (if nuts allowed) see Basics.

    I make Rice Milk -
    Cook 50g Brown rice & 400g water 20mins/100C/speed 2
    Then Blend 3mins/speed 10.
    Add 600g water and blend 1 min, slowly increasing from speed 1 to 10.

    Optional: - use a mix of almonds and rice in step 1 (total weight 50g) and add a sweetener (date, sugar, honey) in step 2 if required.
  2. Preheat Oven
  3. Pre heat oven 160 degrees
  4. Cake Batter
  5. Add all Cup Cake ingredients into TM bowl, then mix on Speed 6 for 6 Sec, scrape down bowl with spatula and repeat until all ingredients are combined. divide cake batter into 24 paper cupcake pans placed into two muffin tins, fill 3/4 full. Bake for 15 minutes or until the centre is set. Lift patty pans out of muffin tins to cool to avoid pattypans going sweaty. Allow to cool completely.
  6. Ganache & Decorate
  7. When cool, make the ganache by heating the chocolate buttons, dairy free milk substitute and rice malt syrup into the TM Bowl for 8min, 50 degrees Speed 2. Add 1-2 minutes if required, until all choc buttons are melted.

    Drop a teaspoon of ganache onto each cupcake and let it spread over the top. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Dont leave in the fridge for too long as the ganache will lose its shine.

    Top or decorate with other ingredients of choice. I like to leave the ganache topped cupcakes at room temperature for at least 4 hours to let them set before serving. Enjoy!

This recipe is a great Birthday "take to school" Celebration Cupcake.

This recipe is nut free unless you choose to use the Almond meal in place of flour. Instead of 2 cups plain flour, use spelt flour, would also be nice with almond meal or coconut flour as a substitute.

    Looks very tasty. My mom has made me similar muffins into school. It has been the most pleasant time at school - lunch). I'm not fond of school at all because my literature teacher hasn't liked me because I use some platforms such as freebooksummary, to read the summary of books (Hamlet or Marianela and other stories). I like to read, but I think that the usage of https://freebooksummary.com/category/marianela is beneficial in some cases. Unfortunately, I haven't enough time to read, and I'd like to spend my time in the kitchen))
