How amazing are Thermomixes!
I have owned my one for just over 12 months now and I absolutely love it. I use it quite a bit, but I know that there is so many more recipes that I could making with it.
I am always on the look out for new recipes to try and I was pretty excited to receive a few copies of TMix+ magazine. Each magazine has over 40 Thermomix recipes and I am lucky to be sharing one on Becomingness.
I chose the Flourless Chocolate Puddings from the Autumn/Winter Issue for three main reasons:
- Gluten free
This recipe is quite easy to make and modified it slightly to suit my preference. I substituted the white sugar with coconut sugar, whipped cream with coconut whipped cream and the cocoa with cacao.
The puddings turned out absolutely delicious. They were light, moist and packed full of flavour. I definitely will be making them again, especially when we guests over for dinner next.
I can’t wait to try some more recipes from the TMix magazine. The hard decision will be deciding which one to try next.
You can purchase TMix+ nationally through newsagents or via www.tmixplus.com.
I would love to hear your thoughts on the recipe, so please let me know in the comments below.
- 100 grams unsalted butter
- 100 gram dark chocolate (I used Green’s organic)
- 60 grams coconut sugar
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- Optional – whipped coconut cream, to serve
- Cacoa powder, to dust
- Grease 8 x 75-mililitre moulds; espresso cups or demitasse cups are ideal.
- Cut the butter into pieces and break up the chocolate. Place these together in a small bowl and melt either slowly in the microwave or over a pot of barely simmering water. Allow the mixture to cool slightly once it has melted.
- Place the sugar into the Thermomix bowl and blend 2 seconds / Turbo. (Repeat if necessary)
- Add the eggs and egg yolks and mix 5 seconds / speed 3. Scrape down the bowl and insert the butterfly.
- Cook the mixture 5 minutes / 37 degrees / speed 4, the tracks of the butterfly should be visible.
- Fold in the slightly cooled chocolate mixture with a spatula, being careful to fold lightly and airily so as to not dimish the mixture.
- Fill in the greased moulds to within 1 cm of the top. Arrange in the Varoma dish, drape paper towel lightly over the top of them and set the Varoma lid in place.
- Pour one litre of water into the Thermomix bowl and heat until Varoma temperature is reached.
- Set the Varoma in place and cook 12 minutes / Varoma / speed 2. Switch the Thermomix off and let the puddings rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
- Serve warm topped with a little whipped coconut cream and dusting of cacoa powder.
