      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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Mill the Cacao nibs 10 Seconds / Speed 9. Set Aside

  2. Drain the Hazelnuts, rinse off and mill for 10 Seconds / Speed 7. Set aside.

  3. Blend Beetroot for 5 Seconds / Speed 7

  4. Add the milled Hazelnuts and Chocolate back into the bowl along with all of the other ingredients

  5. Blend 15 Seconds / Speed 5 with help with the Spatula.

    Scrape down sides of bowl.

    Blend for a further 15 Seconds / Speed 5

  6. Spoon the mixture into Silicon Cupcake Holders about 3/4 full. You will need approximately 22-30 silicon molds. Fill them all up to empty the bowl. Proceed to fill the Varoma dish, bottom and top layer with the Cupcakes. You will fit approximately 14-18 cupcakes in one full round of steaming.

  7. No need to wash your Thermomix Bowl. Add 600ml water. Place the Varoma on top with the lid on and set for 16minutes / Varoma Temperature / Speed 2.

  8. Check that cupcakes are cooked through or almost (any slightly undercooked have a beautiful texture anyway). Carefully remove them all to cool and dry.

  9. Proceed to add any remaining cupcakes into the emptied Varoma and reset this time for 10 minutes / Varoma Temperature / Speed 2 (as the water is already hot for steaming)

  10. Frosting
  11. Place sugar into a clean, dry Thermomix and blend for 15 seconds / Speed 9

  12. Add the remainding ingredients and blend together for 25 seconds / Speed 5

  13. When the Cupcakes have cooled, apply a generous amount of frosting on top of each one. Top with a large chocolate or sprinkles of your choice if desired!


Accessories you need



You may substitute Cacao Nibs for Dark Chocolate (choose ones preferably with no vegetable oil/fat)

Use organic ingredients wherever possible

If you're a chocaholic, add Cacao or Cocoa (30g) to the frosting. I prefer mine white for a contrast!
