Main Dishes / The Best Chicken Nuggets .......ever
« on: December 17, 2013, 04:59:04 pm »
Chicken Nuggets:
4 to 6 people:
300g frozen chicken breast, cut in pieces
100g emmental cheese
Salt & pepper
One egg
Plain flour
2 eggs beaten

Place frozen chicken pieces, cheese, egg, salt and pepper in Thx and program 20 seconds, speed 5-7.
Make small balls, and flatten to make nuggets, dip in flour, beaten eggs and breadcrumbs.
Either freeze or deep fry straight away.


These are ideal for kids, adults, lunch boxes, picnics and finger food at parties.
MUST use emmental, even if you don't like it, its the cheese that makes the exquisite taste. I hate emmental but LOVE these nuggets.

Tips and Tricks / How to make FROTHY MILK
« on: May 11, 2010, 10:52:58 pm »
Just seen this tip in a new Thx book! At last frothy milk for cappuchinos for breakfast!
Thought that I would share this one (Although you may have it down under already!)

The secret is skimmed milk and very very chilled. 0║. Or blitz a couple of ice cubes in with milk before starting.(without butterfly)

200 - 400g very chilled skimmed milk (at 0║)

place butterfly over blades and mix 2-3 mins (depending on 200 or 400g milk) speed 4

then program 3-5 mins/80║/speed 2-3. (again time will vary on amount of milk)

please let me know if you had this recipe/tip?

Bread / Vienna Sweet Muesli Brioche
« on: March 05, 2010, 06:56:00 pm »
Chookie, for you.........

Vienna Sweet Muesli Brioche (makes 15 individual)

250g milk (I used skimmed) ;D
100g sugar (I used brown) ;D
40g fresh yeast
1 egg
500g flour
10g salt
100g butter
150g fruit muesli (mine has bits of apple and banana in, although bet the chocolate one would be nice! :o :o))

Place milk and sugar in Thx, program 1 min, 37║ speed 2.
Add yeast and egg, mix 10 seconds speed 3.
Add flour, salt and program 1 minute speed 6, then 3 minutes,  ::, knead meanwhile slowly add chunks of butter through hole in top.
Add muesli and mix 10 seconds speed 6.
Leave to rise in Thx for about 30 mins, until it pokes out the top.
Preheat oven to 220║.
Then turn out on to floured mat, and I made 15 balls. Then split each ball into two sausage type shapes, and twisted them into a plait, kids helped me.
Place on tray, lower oven temp to 180║ and bake for 30/35 mins. I brushed with egg and sprinkled some sugar crystals, but you can just use icing sugar after baking.

Condiments and Sauces / Hygienic Mayonnaise
« on: February 18, 2010, 07:01:11 pm »

400g vegetable oil (I use sunflower)
2 eggs
10g vinegar
1 teaspoon salt

Weigh out the oil first into a jug/beaker. Keep aside.
Place eggs, vinegar and salt in  *: Program 1 minute 30 seconds, 80║ speed 5.
Then program speed 5 (without temp) and pour oil slowly on to lid with MC in place.
When finished scrape down sides and mix further 10 seconds speed 3.

This recipe is from the offical Thx magazine, but it does state, that although it is lower risk than normal mayo, it is NOT pasteurised.

Desserts / Honey Ice-cream
« on: January 18, 2010, 08:58:19 pm »
Although its freezing here, and the last thing on my mind is ice-cream, however I thought maybe you guys might like to try this one, supposedly delicious, although I may have to wait a while before I can try ice-cream again!

Serves 4 - 6:
500g milk
4 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cornflour
300g honey

Add milk, yolks and cornflour, program 4 mins 90║ speed 3, then add honey and re-program further 4 mins 90║ speed 3. Cool, then freeze for 3 hours, blitz speed 5 and serve.
Sounds lovely!

Meagan - It is really sweet - too sweet for me and I am a mega sweet tooth!! Not sure I would make this one again.

Thermomixer - How about just halving the honey content and adding a teaspoon of lemon juice?

Chit Chat / Happy New Year!
« on: January 18, 2010, 07:49:25 pm »
Hi everyone! Feel like I have been away for years! Missed you all terribly, we went to spend xmas, new year and the 3 kings with our family in Granada, and see the snow in Sierra Nevada, and although we got back 10 days ago, I honestly have not sat down, my emails are almost as bad as the 14 unread pages of topic here! OMG! Pleeeeease let me catch up! Caroline, hang on there, not long now, soups, stews best option, throw it all in, and then blend the soups, you can always spice it up at the end with some chilli/curry to give it a kick! ;D
I can see also that Isi is a fantastic new member....welcome ISI, lovely recipes, look forward to making them, have already printed off 3 this evening!
Now you all have sweltering temperatures, whilst we are freezing in Europe, hope all the ice-creams and cold soups are coming along nicely. Have you all tried the gazpacho? ;) ;)
Nice to be home, back on line, and trying to catch up! Happy new year everyone....may all your dreams/wishes come true!
PS. have put on 1 kilo over xmas, so back to my diet again, hopefully won't take me long to lose it! ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Chocolate Biscuit Sponge Cake

2 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven 180║

Firstly blitz chocolate 5 seconds on Speed 5, so still some chunks, keep aside.
Place biscuits in jug, and 15 seconds speed 5 to 10 until powder.
Add remaining ingredients and mix for 30 seconds speed 7.
Add choc pieces and stir in with spatula. Pour into silicone mould. And voila...straight into oven!

It makes a lovely small cake, best eaten warm (but NOT hot!) with a cup of tea!

Cakes / Bron's Easy Lemon Sponge Cake
« on: October 15, 2009, 04:44:09 pm »
Very easy and light sponge cake. I always make it a round ring type tin (so it doesnt sink in the middle and it cooks to perfection) Never had a flop yet, and I make this weekly as my kids and friends love this one  ;D ;D


3 eggs
200g sugar
100g soft or melted butter
1 yoghurt - 125g (lemon, strawberries or plain yoghurt work best)
170g plain flour
pinch salt
1 sachet baking powder - 2.5 tsps
1 lemon

To make:
Preheat oven 170║.
Firstly peel rind of lemon, no pith, and place the lemon rind in bowl with sugar. Blitz speed 5-10 about 20 seconds. Add eggs and program 2 mins 37║ speed 3. Then add butter and yoghurt, mix 15 seconds speed 3. Add flour, pinch salt and baking powder and mix 12 seconds speed 2 and 1/2.
Pour into greased and floured ring type cake tin. I sometimes use a silicone one, which is ever so easy to turn out on the plate, however the colour isnt as nice as when baked in tin one.
Bake 30 mins on 170║

Then when turned out on plate, squeeze lemon juice into a dish, and add 50-100g of sugar. And baste over cake. This is the bit the kids love best as the sugar is crunchy and yummy.

CP  - this cake is just the antz pantz, ohh so delicious --  think I'll skip lunch and have another slice of this instead. I had half a lemon sitting on the bench, so added the zest of that as well at the beginning. This will definitely become a regular. The consensus on the flavour was like having "a crepe sprinkled with lemon and sugar". We all loved it, and it was very moist too.

Caroline J - I didn't have a ring tin (and am impatient) so I have a cupcake version of these in the oven now. Oh wow, divine!!  I used a lemon meringue diet yoghurt, and they are delicious as cupcakes.

maddy - Oh Bron, we really loved this! I think the lemon/sugar syrup really elevates this cake. I did use 100g sugar for the lemon syrup as the lemon I had was exceptionally tart! I used greek yoghurt and baked for 35 mins in my oven. Will definitely make again, thanks.

Berry - It is just fantastic. I've just made it for the second time .... first time was yesterday ..... should I admit there's only 2 of us?  Probably not!

CC - This is a great recipe. I've passed it into friends who don't own TM's because they were impressed by tasting my cake.

Judydg - Just enjoying a slice of this with a cup of tea - divine!

KerrynN -  I've used sour cream and a little milk (about 30g). It's in the oven now. Yummy! Very moist, with a lovely subtle flavour. I hope the kids don't like it.

johnro - this was delicious - as mentioned so easy and suitable to devour warm or cold.  As the pic testifies, the only yoghurt in the house so picked 2 passionfruit and stirred through yoghurt before adding to mixture in thermie. So moorish, thanks Bron for the recipe and all those who brought this thread to my attention! Also made a batch of cupcakes using this recipe.

JD -  Agree with everyone, it's a winner.

salval - DELICIOUS!!!!! Thanks for this easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy cake recipe.

Chelsea - I've made this twice now.  The first time I used melted butter and it was lovely but a little heavy.  Yesterday I used soft butter (left at room temperature for an hour) and it was very light and fluffy. Very yummy!

ES - I made this with gluten free flour and an extra teaspoon of baking powder, and it worked beautifully.

Hally - Thanks to thermie, I have this cake in the oven, ready in 20 mins, so all done and cooling before school. Also it uses yoghurt. Yay
