      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

  1. Soak the prunes in the rum for at least a few hours, or overnight.

  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  3. Grease a rectangle baking dish (I use a 15x25cm ceramic baking dish) using melted butter.

  4. Drain the prunes and spread them onto your dish.

  5. Place sugar, flour, eggs, milk and salt into the mixing bowl and mix 1min/speed4.
  6. Pour the batter into your baking dish covering the prunes.
  7. Put into the oven for 10 minutes, then turn the heat down to 180°C and bake for another 30-40 minutes.
  8. To check it is ready, dip the blade of a sharp knife in cold water, then pierce the middle of the batter and if the knife comes out clean, it is done. The sides of the batter will also be starting to come away from the dish.
  9. Cool completely in the dish then cut into pieces, and serve with a cup of tea. Bon appétit!

If you want to make more, double the quantity, use a bigger baking dish (23x33cm) and cook for 1h15-1h30.

If you don't like prunes, you can use apples or eat it plain.

    Hi Cecile,

    Your recipe prep mentions flour but it isn't in the list of ingredients.

    How much do you add and is it SR or plain flour?

    Look forward to trying this recipe.
