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!
Add all ingredients for base - 5 seconds/speed 5.
Grease a slice tray or line with paper - press into pan and then put in the fridge
(rinse bowl and wipe dry)
Place all ingredients in bowl. 10 seconds speed 8.
scrape down bowl and do again (same time and speed). Repeat again if necessary. Mixture should be a caramel texture - if too sticky add a little more water (i had to scrape my bowl a few times and move the caramel around the blade to loosen it up each time before mixing again)
Once the texture is easy enough to scrape from bowl and smooth over the base - put back in the fridge while you make the topping.
You'll need to wash out your bowl and dry fairly well for next step.
If coconut oil is solidified then melt 1 min/100c/speed 2.
scrape down bowl (continue until melted). Add remaining ingredients - 1min /100c/speed 3 (not too fast to avoid splatter all over bowl).
Then smooth over the slice in the fridge and refigerate.
Remember coconut oil helps the top to solidify - so when kept out of the fridge will soften a bit. Cut into slices after a few hours (or when the top has gone hard).
And enjoy - This for me is as good as a real caramel slice and its better for you!! ENJOY!!!
As mentioned above when I did the caramel filling it was very sticky and i had to add a little more water each time to get the texture right - this could depend on you medjool date-normal date ratio.
I haven't done it with only normal dates so not sure if the texture works out so caramely - but the medjool dates definitely creat this. If anybody tries with just normal dates let me know how it goes. Hope you enjoy as much as we do (my kids think this is normal caramel slice and they love it as an afterschool treat).
I also like the base a bit 'biscuity' that's why i didn't blitz into a finer base - but you could do this if you wanted by increasing your speed
