Christmas day ….I can safely say that the Thermomix saved us from kitchen meltdown. From chopping garlic and onion, steaming potatoes, making coleslaw and salads, bread rolls, dressings, sauces, marinades and the biggest pavlova we’ve ever made. Above picture is our 16 egg pavlova. Doubled the guided pavlova recipe from the BCB to make two rounds the size of our oven trays and then sandwiched together with cream and more cream. Found the same recipe on the recipe community and posted above. Awesome, we love the crispy outer and marshmallowy centre. Just need to remember to turn temperature down to 120c when putting it in the oven. Left in oven overnight to cool.
Used all the eggs yolks when crumbing the chicken a couple of days later. Nb Yolks can frozen for use later too. Or could be used to make any of the ice cream recipes from the BCB as well.
Lovely wholemeal berry scones recipe made from Something for Everyone cookbook. Recipe called for wholemeal self raising flour, 450g wholemeal flour used so I added 5 tsp of baking powder to sub for self raising flour. All the recipes have little sugar or salt added to cater for the babies. Used 125 g mixed frozen berries instead of blueberries , next time will add a tablespoon of sugar to flour as she suggests. Very yummy scones, liking the wholemeal texture.
Another repeated post because it’s so good. The guided chia and pepita bread recipe made today shows the real power of the thermomix as it mills basmati rice, brown rice, millet into flour. Then we add a range of seeds; quinoa, chickpeas, chia, pepitas. Only needs 1/2 hour to prove and 40 mins to bake. A soft delicious gluten free loaf. Miss 14’s favourite bread.
Banana cake recipe is same as one posted above except used normal flour and 1 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of baking soda instead of self raising flour and baking soda in the above recipe. Iced with lemon icing.

Bake 160 C , 15-20 mins for normal size cupcakes, 10-12 mins for mini cupcakes
Using the chip for the third Thermomix cookbook ” everyday cooking for families “. The recipe link is above. Incorporated the garlic and rosemary into the dough and topped with extra rosemary and sea salt because we love the rosemary flavour and left out Parmesan. Rolled out to approx 2cm thickness and dimpled top so it cooks evenly. Texture is wonderful and soft. Same recipe as pizza dough in the Basic cookbook and chip, except for the added garlic and rosemary flavouring.
This donut recipe from the community had rave reviews. Allow 1 .25 hrs proving time. Ours are not filled with jam, just dipped in oil and rolled in cinnamon sugar before frying in the airfryer. The result is not quite the same as frying on oil, the texture is more like a mini bun but will make a great lunchbox item. If frying in pan or deep fryer, the donuts are rolled in sugar after they are cooked, might try shallow fry next time to get the full effect. Only took 6 minutes on 160 C in airfryer. Makes 20 about the same size as the small ones you get from the market vendors.
The chocolate brownie recipe in the new Thermomix chip (Everyday cooking for Families) is the masterchef brownie recipe posted earlier. So glad it’s made it’s way into a chip because it makes it even more of a breeze to make. Still almost halve the sugar and used 240g instead of 440g. More than sweet enough for us. Chopping whittakers chocolate at speed 4/5 leaves fairly large crunchy chunks in the brownie which the kids love. Cooked for 55 minutes.
