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!
- Combine first 9 ingredients in the order listed, 20secs/sp7.
Knead "Dough mode" 5 mins.
With the motor running on knead function "Dough mode" , drop cubes of butter in through the MC hole. About 30secs per piece.
Blend 30secs/sp 7. Batter will be thick and not blending initially.
Set aside to prove in the usual way, until double. This will take a few hours.
Punch down and shape into 50g balls.
Place on a greased sheet and prove again (covered) until double. This may take a couple of hours.
Preheat the deep fryer to 180°C, (or a large saucepan with 2 litres of oil)
Carefully place 2-3 balls in the oil. Take care not to deflate the balls too much.
Fry app. 2-3 mins, each side, until golden.
You may have to help by gently submerging them with a spoon for a minute or so.
Drain on paper towels and then toss in the caster sugar, while still warm.
Squeeze a small amount of jam into each donut. I used an icing bag fitted with a long narrow tube.
