      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

    Add Sugar, Salt, Egg and Evaporated Milk. Mix 20sec/Sp5

    Add 365 g of Plain Flour. Mix 10 sec/Sp5.

    Scape down and add remaining 250g Flour. Mix 20sec/Sp4.

    Dough will be sticky, so tip immediately into a bowl, and let rest and chill fo up to 24 hours.

    Roll out dough 3-4mm thick, and cut into 6cm squares. Fry squares in 180C hot oil. If Beignets don't pop up, oil is not hot enough. Drain onto paper towel.
