      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

  1. Add pitted dates, lemon zest, garbanzo flour to  and blitz for 10 secs on speed 9 or until done. Set aside.


    Add milk, cream, dried yeast and sugar to . Cook for 3 minutes at 37 degrees C at speed 1. 


    To  add the coconut flour, quinoa flour, almond meal, salt, butter, eggs, stevia (or sugar), nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and mix for 10 seconds on speed 7. Scrape down sides with spatula and then for 5 minutes. The dough is very thick and you will need to assist the kneading by using the spatula to stir a few times. 


    Add raisins and mix for 10 seconds on  at speed 5 and use the spatula to assist with mixing if required.


    Transfer to a bowl and place a towel over the top and set aside in a warm place for about 1 hour to prove. This dough is very heavy, it will not rise a lot, the yeast is used to give  a yeasty flavour.


    Knock dough down (it won't have risen a lot) and divide mixture into 12 equal sized pieces. Form into rolls and place into a large 12 pan muffin tin. Press them down. Top wth Piping mixture and cook straight away. No proving time required. Bake in 200 degrees C oven for 15-20 minutes.



    Into a separate bowl (not thermie bowl) place cornflour, salt, olive oil and water (as required to make into a paste to pipe) into a bowl and mix. Pour into a piping bag and top buns with crosses. 



    Place water, sugar in a separate microwave bowl (not thermie bowl) and cook in microwave for 2 minutes. 


    Use the syrup to brush buns  as soon as they are out of the oven. Allow buns to cool for about 5 minutes before serving with butter and honey.
