      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. 1. Preheat the oven to 190C.

    2. Butter 6 ramekins.

    3. Using simmering basket drain the apricot halves, slice and arrange them in the ramekins.

    4. Dust each ramekin with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Place on a baking tray for easier handling.

    5. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium sized bowl.

    6. Insert butterfly whisk, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla on speed 3 until creamy. Occasionally scrape down the sides and repeat. 

    7. Add the egg and reduce to speed 2 until just blended.

    8. Reducing speed to 1.5 gradually beat in the dry ingredients, alternating with the milk.

    9. Spoon the batter into the ramekins. 

    10. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

    11. Cool the cakes in the ramekins for 10 minutes. Invert each onto a dessert plate. 

    12. Clean and dry bowl and butterfly whisk.

    13. Insert butterfly whisk and beat cream on speed 3 until stiff. Watch carefully to avoid over-whipping.

    14. Spoon the cream over the cakes or serve on the side.
