Thermomix Tomato and Mozzarella Pizza

Tomato and Mozzarella Pizza

This is a very straightforward pizza, a standard pizza dough topped with organic tinned chopped tomatoes and grated mozzarella.

The original recipe says to knead for 2 minutes but that's not long enough, knead for 4 minutes and you'll end up with a fabulous dough.

Mini Chocolate Cakes with Strawberries

Mini Chocolate Cake with Strawberries

Strawberries are still being sold on Bridgnorth market and these were really sweet, fragrant and juicy.
As we know, baking doesn't always deliver what we expect and these cakes were made from a chocolate cake which didn't quite go to plan.

The cocoa powder didn't mix into the raw cake batter, my cake was a little heavy but rather than throw the chocolate sponge away I cut out tiny rounds and topped them with swirls of vanilla and chocolate icing.
