      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!

    5. Add the milks and vanilla and beat 30secs/sp4, scraping in between if necessary.

    6. Pour over the (now) set caramel toffee base.

    7. Prepare a water bath for the flan.
    Place the flan dish inside a larger dish and fill the larger dish 2.5cm up the sides of the flan dish.

    8. Place in the oven and bake for 45-50 mins or until there is a slight wobble when gently shaken.

    9. Cool on the bench for 1 hour befour placing in the fridge, overnight if possible.
