      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. Preheat oven to 200C.
    Add almonds to the bowl and grind - 15sec/sp10. Scrape down.
    Add remaining ingredients and mix - 30secs/sp8.
    Place dough on a grease peice of baking paper and pat dough (I use wet hands) into a large oval shape (approx 30cm x 20cm). You can also roll it out with a rolling pin if using another peice of baking paper on top.

    Cinnamon Filling
    Without washing bowl, add cinnamon filling ingredients to bowl and melt - 3 mins/70C/Sp3.
    Spread cinnamon mix over dough, covering as much as possible.

    Cream Cheese Filling
    Without washing bowl, add cream cheese filling ingredients to bowl and mix - 20sec/sp4.
    Place this mixture down the middle of the oval, lengthwise, in an oval shape leaving around 3cm at the top and bottom, and 7cm on each side.

    Cut 2cm thick strips along the long edges that dont have cream cheese filling on them. Fold the top and bottom end in and on top of the cream cheese filling. Then you can fold your strips over the filling, working from one side to the other to create a 'plait' until it is all wrapped. Place in the oven to bake for 15mins or until it is golden brown and the dough is cooked. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
    Meanwhile in a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients with a spoon. If it gets too thick, add more cream, too thin, add more sweetner.
    Once the danish is cool, drizzle glaze over and sprinkle with crushed almonds if desired.

    Thanks for converting this recipe. I've made the original and was excited to see the thermomix version. My dough was a little too soft and difficult to work with so I would increase the almonds a little next time. I think you made a typo in the cinnamon filling section. 80g of cinnamon is a huge amount. I checked it against the original version which called for 2 US tablespoons so that's what I used and it turned out well.
