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!

Accessories you need
~ This recipe is suitable for both TM31 & TM5 models.
~ Despite the Name, there is no actual Honey used in this recipe.
~ This Recipe is a Traditional Maltese Christmas Sweet.
~ The filling mixture makes enough to fill 2 batches of pastry.
~ Due to the weight of the Semolina, it is really important that you pre-measure this before being the filling,
~ I found that the scales don't recognise it on the TM5 when measuring in whilst the TM Blades (Knives) are turning.
