  • 150 g Cheddar cheese See notes
  • 50 g butter
  • 50 g plain flour
  • 500 g milk


  • Cut the cheese into cubes and add to the Thermomix bowl. Grate for 5 seconds / speed 8. Set aside.
  • Add the butter to the bowl. Melt for 2 minutes / 60 degrees / speed 2.
  • Add the flour to the bowl. Cook for 1 minute / 100 degrees / speed 1 with the simmering basket on the lid in place of the MC.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and ensure all flour is on the butter and not on the blades. Repeat for 2 minutes / 100 degrees / speed 1.
  • Add the milk to the bowl. Cook for 10 minutes / 100 degrees / speed 3 with the simmering basket on the lid in place of the MC.
  • Add the grated cheese. Cook for a further 2 minutes / 100 degrees / speed 1.5.


If using the TM6 measuring cup (MC), when cooking at temperatures over 95 degrees, Thermomix recommends using the simmering basket on the lid in place of the MC.
Your choice of cheese will determine how strong the cheese flavour of the sauce is. Go for a strong cheddar for a stronger flavour or a milder cheddar for a milder flavour. Feel free to experiment with Swiss cheese, parmesan, blue cheese etc.
