Squeezing lemon juice

TMX PIC TIPS_Lemon juice

I just love how Vorwerk thought of everything when they designed the Thermomix!

Did you know you can use your spatula to squeeze lemon juice onto the lid?

With the MC in place it will catch the pips and allow the lemon juice to run in.

How does it do this? It was designed with a tapered base so that it allows steam out AND you can pour liquid in 🙂

Lemon Cupcakes with Citrus Syrup

IMG_7015   Lemon cupcakes are not really my thing. I always choose chocolate over citrus flavoured desserts or treats. But these Lemon Cupcakes with Citrus Syrup from the new Everyday Cooking with Thermomix Families TM5 were a treat, even if they didn’t rise as much as they should have 😉

It’s a fairly simple batter but what I love more than that is the fact that you steam them in the Varoma. I hear all the time about people not using their Varoma so what better reason is there than a sweet treat?!

They steam for 22 minutes and then it’s time to make the citrus syrup. Made with sugar, water and lemon juice it’s the perfect chance to use the spatula to juice the lemon. I just love how they thought of everything when they designed the Thermomix!

Once the syrup is made, pour it over puddings and garnish with desiccated coconut and they’re ready to serve 🙂
