Recipe is created for
TM 5Please 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!
Mill the Cacao nibs 10 Seconds / Speed 9. Set Aside
Drain the Hazelnuts, rinse off and mill for 10 Seconds / Speed 7. Set aside.
Blend Beetroot for 5 Seconds / Speed 7
Add the milled Hazelnuts and Chocolate back into the bowl along with all of the other ingredients
Blend 15 Seconds / Speed 5 with help with the Spatula.
Scrape down sides of bowl.
Blend for a further 15 Seconds / Speed 5
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.
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.
Check that cupcakes are cooked through or almost (any slightly undercooked have a beautiful texture anyway). Carefully remove them all to cool and dry.
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)
Place sugar into a clean, dry Thermomix and blend for 15 seconds / Speed 9
Add the remainding ingredients and blend together for 25 seconds / Speed 5
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!
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!
