    Macaroni Cheese Bake

    Without washing the bowl place the chopped butter into the TM bowl.

    Place the lid on the bown and melt the butter for 5 mins at 70 deg speed 1.

    Remove the lid and add the plain flour into the bowl, trying not to get too much on the blades.

    Place the lid back onto the bowl and cook for 4 mins at 90 deg speed 1.

    When cooked, remove the lid and add the English mustard, nutmeg and seasoning.

    Place the lid onto the bowl and mix for 10 seconds speed 3.

    Remove the lid and scrape down the sides of the bowl thoroughly.

    Add 200g milk and place lid onto the bowl.

    Mix the ingredients for 10 seconds speed 4.
