      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Weigh rolled oats into the TM bowl, pour over the milk, and leave to soak for 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and lightly grease and line a 1 kg loaf tin with baking paper.

  3. Add the egg, honey, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, pear, dates, grated apple and flour to the soaked oats and mix at speed 3.5,  for 10 seconds.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and mix again as described for a further 10 seconds or until well mixed.

  4. Spoon the mix into the prepared tin, level the top and sprinkle with slivered almonds.

  5. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden and cooked through.  Leave to cool a little in the tin before turning out.

Dried pear and dates may be substituted for other dried fruits of choice including apple, cranberry, fig, prune etc.

To make it lunch box friendly, leave off the slivered almonds or spread them on only half the loaf keeping the nut-free end for school and that with nuts for home.

A mix of wholemeal plain flour and spelt or spelt/rye also works well in this loaf.
