      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!

    First thing my daughter made in the Thermie! First thing my daughter made in the Thermie!

    My daughter just arrived home having finished Uni - first time she had seen my new Thermie, and she made these for her father for his birthday tomorrow.

    Given she had never used or seen a Thermie before they worked out pretty well!

    Thanks for the recipe.   tmrc_emoticons.)
