Bacon and cheese scones in the Thermomix

ham-641904_1280

Here in the UK, when you attend a Thermomix demo, you get to make and taste delicious cheese scones, which we then enjoy with a pea and mint soup.

Since adding Momo the Thermomix to our family about a year ago, I have made the classic cheese scone recipe so many times I’ve lost count – tonight we added bacon to it and very nice it was too. So I thought I’d share…

Quick and easy Madeleine Thermomix recipe

madeleine-683743_1280

You can’t get more French than with lovely madeleines, buttery French sponge cakes traditionally baked in scallop-shaped moulds.

This Thermomix madeleine recipe couldn’t be more delicious, or easier to make.

You’ll need a specific madeleine mould to achieve the specific shape. This one from Amazon is very good.
