Recipe is created for
TM 5Please 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!
Making the Base
Mill 225gms of sugar MC/3 Sec/Sp10 to make your castor sugar.
Add flour and shift MC/5 Sec/Sp 5 to combine.
Add butter, MC/10 Sec/Sp 4. Contents should resemble breadcrubms with butter still visiable. Scrap the sides and mix again for MC/5 Secs/Sp 4. The shortcake pastry should come together on its own after this step. If it does't, do another mix and the pastry should be finished.
Don't melt the butter. It will give a different result and you won't have the lovely texture at the end.
Empty dough onto rectangular tin and push into all the corners. I find a round glass perfect for making the dough even.
Make the Topping
In a clean bowl, combine the sugar, lemon rind and mill MC/10 Sec/Sp 10. The sugar and rind should appear clumpy in appearance.
Add the juice, eggs, and flour and mix MC/10 Sec/Sp 5.
Pour the lemon liquid over the shortcake pastry.
Gentle sprinkle the blueberries over the lemon liquid and place into the preheated oven and reduce temperature to 160 to 170 degrees (depending upon your oven) for 35 to 40 mins.
The Shortcake Slice has a chewing texture similar to meringues while having a lemon flavour. Allow to cool and serve with either vanilla ice cream/plain vanilla cream or enjoy on its own.
This can be made with either a TM31 or TM5.
