What's 'reverse speed'? Is that the dough setting?

What does "reverse + soft speed mean?

 :P Yes, I call them 'pattycakes', not cupcakes.

This was originally a food processor recipe, so converts well to the Tmix.

Place in bowl:

220g softened butter
3/4 cup (150g) castor sugar
1 1/2 cups(240g) SR flour - I have successfully used plain flour with 2 t sp of baking powder
4 eggs

You can dump the whole lot in and mix for about 3 minutes on speed 4.
But I prefer to do it this way:
Mix the butter and sugar at speed 4 for 3 minutes. Scrape down frequently.
Add eggs one at a time and mix for 30 secs each - scrape down between additions.
Add sifted flour and mix on speed 2 for 30 seconds or until incorporated. I now use the  :: setting for adding flour to cakes. Mix for about 15 - 20 seconds and use spatula to assist.

Bake at 180oC, fan forced for 15 minutes. I use an ice cream scoop to fill the patty pans. Makes 16.

Amanda - I just made these and they are lovely. I added 1 tsp of Queens Vanilla Paste. If I wanted to make them chocolate I would sub 1-2 Tbsp good quality cocoa for same amount of flour.

ralo - These are great though mine needed 30 minutes to cook.

brazen - great recipe and converts well to being gluten free!!
Just wanted to note that I made these yesterday with GF flour and lots of vanilla but forgot to put the baking powder in - they are even better than usual without it! yum!

CP -  had a half success today - one batch rose, and then the second batch rose and then sunk to a level top. Am still getting used to my new oven perhaps...

Jabba - I made these and they turned out really well. I needed to mix for about 2 min to incorporate the flour - and used the spatula.  I made 12 cakes in large patty cake papers (in muffin trays) and in my oven, cooking time was closer to 30 min.  Delicious!

darls - I made 50 cup/pattycakes and all were gone. My boy said it's the most yummiest! I did two batches with small paper cupcake, using green icing on top and 5 smarties as 5th bday.

simplyrhonda - Made these, the loved them. Delicious & easy.

maddy - Nice and easy MJ. I added 50g coloured splinters in with the flour too.

WAThermoFamily - thanks Meganjane these tasted great!  Even so good that most were eaten before I got time to ice and decorate.

AmandaN -  I have used egg replacement as my younger son is allergic.  The cupcakes out ok.  They were a little drier than cupcakes with egg but I didn't expect them to be exactly the same anyway.  A couple of them (slightly larger) broke when I removed them from the tray, but hey.....they were the commission ones that I got to eat!  They rose well and dropped a little in the middle, so with icing they were pretty much flat across the top.  I then added 5 mini-marshmallows (his 5th birthday), and you don't notice at all.

Lisa J - Thanks for this recipe, they were lovely. Made a second batch and stirred crushed Oreos through the batter and they turned out even NICER!!

em - thanks mj for a great and simple recipe.  I love the recipe, the batter is so fluffy and when cooked the patty cakes are beautiful and moist.

cottchick -  they are fantastic and too easy for words. I just threw all the ingredients in in no order, forgot the baking powder, still they are just perfect. THANKS!

Hmm. What would they make of a contestant who brings along their own equipment?

I wouldn't enter it for the world. Wayyyy too much stress. I love watching it though!

This starts on April 27th, according to the website:

Hi all,

I've just found this forum. Funnily enough, I was googling Thermomix because I was planning on selling mine having not used it for about three years.
After reading here, I got it out and started using it again. I made roasted pumpkin and zucchini soup, which ended up being too large a batch and I had to transfer it to a pot. Then I made the Milk Rolls from the recipe book. They were the most divine rolls I've ever made!!

So, to cut a long story short, my T'mix is back in my kitchen and I'm excited about using it again!

Glad I found this place.
