      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

    Pastry Method

    1.  Place butter, golden syrup and vanilla into bowl 5.30min/80degrees/sp2

    2.  Scrap down sides of bowl

    3.  Add plain flour, wholemeal flour, bi carb and cinnamon 30sec/sp2

    4.  Scrap down sides of bowl

    5.  Mix again 1.00min/sp2Counter-clockwise operation

    6.  Remove dough from bowl and place on a tray covered with baking paper in a rectangle shape, place a second sheet of baking paper on top and place in fridge, allow to cool for 30-45 mins. Be careful as mixture maybe hot.

  2. Fruit Filling Method

    1.  Place ingredients for desired filling into bowl blitz 4sec/sp7

    2.  Scrap down sides of bowl

    3.  Cook 18.00min/100 degrees/sp2

    4.  Remove MC cook for another 5min/Varooma/sp2

    5.  Remove from bowl and place into fridge to cool

  4. Assembly

    1.  While fruit is cooling preheat oven to 180 degrees, line a baking tray

    2.  Roll out dough into a thin rectangle about 2-3mm thick

    3.  Cut the dough into rectangles

    4.  Place a small amount of filling onto one rectangle

    5.  Bring both sides together, overlapping slightly to form a case around filling

    6.  Place seam side down

    7.  Repeat for all rectangles. Leave room between each bar as they will grow in size during baking.

    8.  Bake for 15-18 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they will cook differently in fan forced/conventional/convection ovens.

    9.  Do not over cook or you will have a hard biscuit pastry. You want soft, light golden crust.


Accessories you need



1. You can use any type of butter, I use Nuttelex as we have a dairy allergy in our household.

2. You can replace some of the Golden Syrup with more honey.

    This was brilliant. Made others before and not nearly as good. I’ve also made them with this filling following instructions.
    2 small pears
    125g blueberry
    200g dates from packet

    Made the rectangle pastry to roll approx 10x5cm filled them rolled then cut in half. Perfect!

  • Great recipe. I figured out

    Great recipe. I figured out to pop the honey in with the golden syrup. My 1 & 4 year old loved them. I didn't have the fruit listed so I used two bananas, one apple, one pear, a few blueberries and currents. Ended up with double fruit mix and made a second batch
