      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!

    Mix pumpkin, sugar, eggs on speed 4 for 10 seconds. 

    Dissolve baking powder and baking soda in a teaspoon of water then add that mix with all other ingredients to the pumpkin mix in the bowl and mix 15 seconds on speed 6.
