    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!

Recipe's preparation

    for choux paste
  1. Place butter water and salt in tm bowl 

    Cook for 5 mins 100c speed

    Add flour and mix speed 8 for 1 min 

    Let rest for approx 10 mns or until cool dont remove from bowl just take the lid off 

    After its rest with blades roating on speed 3 , slowing add the eggs until they are mix through well . 

     

    Increase the speed and blend for 30 secs speed 3 . 

    At this point if not using immediately place in air tight box and it will keep for up to 3 days 

     

  2. To make the beignets 

    Once mix is cooled . Add crabmeat  cayenne and chives season with salt . Mix well . 

    I prefer to do this by hand it only takes a few seconds and I can use my bowl for something else . 

    Heat  deepfryer to 160c or use a pan with sunflower oil . 

    Drop tablespoons of mix into oil a few at a time and cook for 5-6 mins . They will puff so dont make them too big . Bitesizes is best . once cooked season with salt 

    Drain and serve with a sweet chilli dipping sauce or tomato relish as a starter or light lunch . Or tapas item . 

     

    You can vary filling but dont use anything too wet like too much soft cheese  etc . These will cause you end product to be soggy . 

    A good filling idea is pumpkin and parmesan . But cook pumpkin first and mush it up
