    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).

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!

    To me, they taste exactly how home made lamingtons should.

    The sponge was lovely and the method produced a great even sponge. I baked mine in a 20x30 tin which gave me good portion sizes.

    i didn’t make the icing recipe though; I felt using actual chocolate was a bit extravagant for my purposes so I followed the icing from another recipe and was really happy with the overall result.
