Mocha Custard | Recipes for your Thermomix

I had been thinking and thinking about trying a Mocha Custard in my Thermomix for some time, seeing as though custard is one of the recipes we make at least 3 times a week in our house (and truth be told, one of the main reasons my husband was sold on the Thermomix!) I finally gave it a go.!!!

So after trying vanilla custard, lemon custard, orange custard, chocolate custard, jaffa custard, caramel custard and my 2 year old's idea for...wait for it....FAIRY custard (pink food colouring in the vanilla custard with 100s and 1000s on top)...I now have a new favourite - MOCHA.

100g sugar
50g flour
2 heaped spoons of cocoa
2 eggs
480g milk
1 shot of espresso coffee 

Cook for 7 mins, 90c speed 4

Try will love it!

Home made pasta sauce

So today is one of those rainy-stay-in-your-pjs-till-lunchtime days, perfect for making pasta sauce!

I am no expert, and this is my own personal way of doing it...if you like it feel free to give it a go. 


I basically used up most of the veggies in my crisper to make this.

4 stalks of celery
2 carrots
1 green capsicum
a few floret of cauliflower
1 onion
2 tins of chopped tomatoes (cheaper per kilo than fresh right now)
fresh basil, chives & parsley from the herb garden
2 TB vegetable stock paste from EDC
1/2 cup red wine

Chop veggies and fill bowl, speed 6 for 10-20 seconds until minced up. Then add 2 x tins tomato, veggie paste & a splash of red wine.
Cook 100c, speed 1 for 30 mins.
After cooking taste and season if it needs anything extra
Turn slowly to speed 6, then speed 9 for 30 seconds (do this slowly so it doesn't spit out the top and burn you)

And there you have it! I managed to make 2 litres of sauce with 6 veggies and red wine in 30 minutes while I got to sit down...all for around $2.80 which is less than 60c per jar. See how a Thermomix SAVES YOU MONEY??

We usually use this sauce to make pasta bake with some grated cheese and breadcrumbs finished off in the oven for a quick and tasty vegetarian meal the kids love. Try it!!
