      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. - Preheat oven to 180 degrees (Fan forced)
    - Lightly butter a pie dish and set aside
    - Add lemon zest and sugar to your TM bowl and grate for 15 seconds on speed 9
    - Add the remaining dough ingredients to your TM bowl
    - Mix for 7 seconds on speed 6
    - Place TM on knead function for 40 seconds while simultaneously pouring 6 teaspoons of water through the mixing bowl lid
    - Once kneading is complete, pour your dough into a pie dish and press the pastry to fit the pie dish with your hands (you can roll it out with a rolling pin but the pastry is very delicate and I find it easier to just press it with my fingers).
    - Once pastry is pressed into pie dish place a sheet of baking paper down over the pastry and either add rice or a glass measuring cup to avoid the pastry rising whilst baking.
    - Then bake for 20 minutes until golden brown (you may only need 15 minutes depending on your over strength)
  2. Lemon Curd
  3. - Add all curd ingridents to your TM (I don't rinse the TM bowl after making the dough because I don't think its necessary!)
    - Once all ingridents are in the TM bowl, mix for 7 minutes at 85 degrees on speed 4.
    - Now pour all of the Lemon curd into the reserved pastry tin (it's fine if it's still hot!)
    - Leave to cool completely out of fridge, then place in fridge for at least 2 hours as it tastes best when its a little chilled!

    Viola! The perfect lemon tart tmrc_emoticons.)
