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!
Grease and line a slice tin (16 x 26 cms) slice tin with baking paper. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Add butter (100 grams) to bowl. 1:30/90 degrees/slowest speed to melt
Add broken up packet of scotch finger biscuits. 8 seconds/speed 7 to combine.
Scrape down sides of bowl and add coconut (30 grams). 5 seconds/speed 7. Press into the base of prepared pan and put in fridge to set (about 30 minutes).
Add rind of two lemons to bowl - I like to slice the rind off with a sharp knife trying not to take too much white (pith) with it. 10 seconds/speed 10 to grate. Scrape down bowl.
Add juice from both lemons (about 1/2 a cup) and condensed milk and three egg yolks (reserving whites for later) to grated lemon rind. 8 seconds/speed 7.
Pour onto base and place back into the fridge to become a little firmer.
Clean and dry bowl thoroughly, insert butterfly and add egg whites (3) to bowl. Add a couple of pinches of salt. 5 minutes/37 degrees/speed four. At about the 3 minute mark (when whites are starting to stiffen add sugar (1/2 cup) 1 table spoon at a time through measuring cup hole while continuing to run.
Add coconut. 10 seconds/speed 4 to combine. It doesn't need to be mixed too much as you will mix it more while spreading it onto the filling.
Using a spatula gently spread meringue mixture onto filling.
Bake 20 - 25 minutes until the top is a lovely golden colour. Cool in pan before cutting.
You can add a little extra lemon juice if you like your lemon desserts to be more tart.
