      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C. Line 21cm x 28cm slice tin with baking paper.

    Place SR Flour and butter into Closed lid. Place lid and MC on then 5 Sec/Sp 6.

    Add sugar, coconut and oats. Place lid on with MC, mix Counter-clockwise operation 6 Sec/Sp 4. Scrape down sides and repeat until just mixed but still a bit lumpy.

    Spread half of the mixture into prepared pan an press down to form base.

    Spread base with JAM FILLING to desired thickness (to taste).

    Pour remaining topping onto jam and carefully spread across evenly. Very gently press down so still slightly rough but won't fall apart.

I have used apricot jam but it certainly is better with plum, raspberry, strawberry or blackberry jam

    Made these for my mother in law. They were great. Cut them into smaller serves as they are sweet

    Made these yesterday for a luncheon and served them warm for dessert with icecream. Everyone enjoyed them. They were a bit sweet so I'd probably reduce the sugar next time. Thank you for the recipe.
