Some do have a problem with this one but Thermomixer did some testing.  I know there is a lot to read in this thread but if you have the time Generali, have a read to see if you can pick up any hints.  This is Thermomixer's deduction

Ok - THE ANSWER - it is the SPEED !!!!!!

I started making as per the instructions and after 20 minutes it is all going brilliantly.

Then I decided to experiment.  If I turn the speed down to 3 then foam started swelling up inside like a volcano and if you turn the speed back up to 5 then it won't overflow !!   

So, tried again few times and I AM CONVINCED - if it goes at greater then 4.5 it is OK - but slower and you are likely to have a mess.

It is fun turning it down and then stopping the overflow by speeding it up.

Hope you give it a go Bel - even try just with a small amount of milk without the rest to begin - set it to Varoma and speed 3 and watch - as it starts to foam turn it up to 5.

I have just read through the whole thread and you have summed it up Judy. It's interesting isn't it?

Thanks.  My trouble is I'm quite an impatient person and have a tendency to dive in.  Reading 9 pages of instructions before starting is probably beyond me! :D

I reckon next time I try it on higher speed with half the quantity.  Attack the problem from both ends.  We've only had the Thermomix for a week.

I am here to report that I tried this recipe tonight with out of date cream and milk made up from milk power and it still made beautiful Dulche de Leche.  I am going to make Banoffee Pie with the rrecipe shared by Steph Berg.  http://www.stephberg.com/?p=1008

Thank you, all.  Very lovely.

I believe that the Banoffee Pie recipe was originally posted by Bron here on the forum.
