      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!

    Made 9 muffins for my husband and son (probably too thick when I cut the dough hence not 12) and used rest for a pizza which was delicious. I'd use the recipe for a pizza/foccaccia again.

    Really happy with this recipe, as I’ve tried a couple of others & this recipe is so much easier & tastier. The only thing I would change next batch is to add more salt 😄
