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!
Heat your oven to 190 degrees celcius and put shelf in the middle. Have ready your flan dish, I spray mine lightly with oil.
Blitz all the sugar and zest in the bowl for 10 seconds/Speed 10 then set aside.
Melt your butter either in your microwave for a few seconds or in the bowl for 4 minutes/ 37 degrees / Speed 2 then pour into a jug and set aside. Meanwhile juice your lemons if not done already.
Add flour to the bowl with 50g of the sugar and lemon mix, a pinch of salt and mix 5 seconds / Speed 4. Scrape down the sides.
Without the measuring cup, turn to Speed 2 and slowly pour in melted butter through the lid until the dough begins to come together and resembles breadcrumbs.
Pour the crumb mixture into your flan dish and press evenly up the sides with your fingertips and flatten into the base. Place your pie weights onto the crust ready to bake.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is light golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly whilst you make the filling.
Put aside a generous spoonful of the lemon and sugar mix. Place the remainder into your bowl with the lemon juice, eggs, cream and another pinch of salt. Blend 15 seconds/Speed 6 MC on.
Place the flan dish back into the oven on a tray. Pour the filling into the still warm crust (pic below) then bake for 25-30 minutes until the centre of the tart is cooked (it will wobble).
Cool the tart on a wire rack then refrigerate.
Before serving liberally sift the reserved lemon and sugar mix over the tart. Slice into wedges and enjoy!
I use a 24cm earthenware flan dish (3cm deep) - or you could use a larger dish (say 28cm) that is less deep.
If you want to use a loose based tart tin, then make sure there are no cracks in the crust before you pour in the filling and keep and eye on baking times. If there are any cracks in your base, make up a quick flour and water paste and fill them up!
