      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. Mill the raw sugar to castor sugar - 4 sec/speed 10, remove from the bowl and set aside.
  2. Place the self raising flour and butter in to the mixing bowl and mix 10 sec/speed 5, allowing the the butter and flour to rub together to form “breadcrumbs”.
  3. Add the raw sugar, currants (or sultanas, which is what mum and myself prefer) , and mix for 10sec/speed 4Counter-clockwise operation.
  4. Add the splash of whole milk, using the dough mode, for 20 seconds, this should make a firm dough that is suitable for rolling out.
  5. Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and roll until approximately 1cm thick, using a fluted cookie cutter (5-6cm in diameter) cut the dough, re-rolling and cutting until the dough has all been used.
  6. Using a griddle iron (or heavy based frying pan) on a low heat, cook until a golden brown. Flip the Welsh cakes and allow to cook on the second side.

You can dust the Welsh cakes with caster sugar whilst hot, if you so desire, but we never did this when I was a child…. Best served warm (off the griddle) or store in an airtight container for a few days.
