      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).

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 SO delicious and tasty even with such simple ingredients. Great way of hiding veggies from kids (they'll never know because they taste so good!) I often make a batch of batter and keep in the fridge for a quick easy meal. Also take to work and cook on the flat sandwich press. Others have also made these into small finger food size to serve as canapes

    Hi, what sort of cabbage is used? Half a regular cabbage seems to be a lot! Has anyone tried in a TM31?

    I like the pancake recipe, but I did find it quite dough-ey, so I flattened them out more when putting the batter into the pan. I also added some more cabbage and chopped it on speed 4, to give it a bit more crunch.

    The sauce recipe is an absolute cracker! Love it so much. Hubby says it would be great on some smoky ribs or steak too.

    Thanks for the great recipes!

    Really good Okonomiyaki recipe. I had not put cheese in Okonomiyaki before but it worked. The child who declared they don't like Okonomiyaki loved it! Didn't make the sauce yet though. I think I will next time

    They are fantastic for a super quick, nutritious lunch for the kids. I have made these weekly since I bought my Thermomix. I only make a half batch, using 1 egg and omitting the water and I don't always make the sauce (as the kids often cannot wait that long). I cook on my flat sandwich press as suggested for easy clean up!
