      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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. Add self raising flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar to TM Bowl. 


    Turbo a couple of times to combine.  Set aside in a separate bowl.


    Add oil, egg and milk to TM Bowl. 


    Mix for 5 seconds on Speed 5. 


    Add dry ingredients to wet mixture in TM Bowl.


    Mix for 5 seconds on Speed 5 to combine.


    Pour batter into silicone cupcake patty pans and place in the steaming tray.


    Fill the bowl with 500mls water.


    Place the steaming tray on top of the bowl and steam for 20 minutes at Varoma temp, speed 2.


    If you do not wish to steam you can bake in paper patty pans in a cupcake tray at 175 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until skewer comes out dry.


    I do prefer the steamed version as they stay moist.

  2. Topping
  3. Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.


    Melt butter in the microwave.


    Immediately after removing the cupcakes from the steaming tray or oven, using a pastry brush, brush each cupcake generously with butter then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture / sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture on top of each cupcake using a spoon.


Accessories you need



I didn't exactly measure the nutmeg or cinnamon. Using the little spice jars I added 1 'shake' of cinnamon and 2 'shakes' of nutmeg to the dry ingrediants and 1 'shake' of cinnamon to the sugar topping.

Cupcakes are great in the oven however since starting to steam them I prefer them steamed as they seem to be even moister! 

Paper patty pans work best if using the oven. 

If steaming you must use the silicone patty pans as the paper ones will not stay upright.

Note: this is a variation of a Donut Muffin recipe I found on the Recipe Community that I can no longer locate

    Delicious and easy. Very thin batter but they worked well 👍🏻 I substituted the 80 grams of Nativia with castor sugar. I made six silicone cupcakes exactly. I also placed the butter in a small ceramic dish and sat it on top of the varoma lid while the cakes cooked, it was ready to dip into when the cakes were cooked.
