I am on a mission! We have been dubbed the Women's Weekly of Thermomix recipes and we love it. You should be able to do a search on here and find a recipe that works that will fill the niche recipe you are seeking. In this case, this is a very old recipe from back in the days when this site was called steam oven cooking! (Yep...that is how it all started!)

Should you not possess a steam oven, by all means, go and buy one! If that isn’t working for you, place a bain marie on the bottom shelf of your conventional oven, preheat the oven to fan forced 180ºC and cook the muffins for the same amount of time. They may be a little trickier to remove from the tins, but you can always resort to silicone.
