    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

    Please read tips below before starting
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius and grease and line bases of friand/muffin tin/s (see Tip 1 below). This recipe makes 10 large friands.
    2. Add raw almonds to TM bowl, MC on. Mill 10 secs Sp 7.
    3. Add plain flour and icing sugar (see Tip 2 below). Mix 10
    secs Sp 5. Remove to a bowl and set aside.
    4. Wipe out TM bowl with a dry cloth.
    5. Insert butterfly and add egg whites. Beat 15 secs Sp 3 until frothy (no peaks need to form).
    6. Return dry ingredients to TM bowl and add melted butter. Gently mix on Dough/Interval mode 30 secs.
    7. Add berries (I use a mix of raspberries & blueberries) and
    white chocolate and fold gently by hand with spatula, just until ingredients come together.
    8. Spoon into friand tins until 3/4 full (makes 10 large friands) and decorate with extra berries, pushing berries gently into the batter.
    9. Bake for 20-25 mins.
    10.Stand for 5 mins before turning onto wire rack to cool (see Tip 3 below).
    11.Dust with icing sugar

    1. I always found it really difficult to get the friands out of the tin once baked (due to the caramelising of the berries on the sides & base of the tin) so I now line the friand tins with baking paper. This is fiddly but worth the effort.
    I turn the tin upside down, trace one oval from the tin and cut out multiple ovals in one go (see photo No 2 above).

    2. I use ready made icing sugar but if you need to mill the icing sugar, do it BEFORE you start the recipe.

    3. These can easily be made gluten free by substituting GF
    plain flour. The last time I made these friands, I used Aldi's GF plain flour and they were great.

    Please Note: This recipe is not my own but a favourite which I cut out of a Wine Selectors magazine (that we subscribe to) years ago. I have just adapted it here for use in the TM5.
