      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!

    I made this. The recipe says to let it set for 4 hours. It does set in that time but not completely. Also, the flavour really develops and tastes better if you leave it overnight. It was okay the day I made it, but absolutely delicious the next day. I topped it with sliced strawberries and will be making it again!
