      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. Add cinnamon and brown sugar to your thermomix bowl. Put on MC. Mix on speed 4 for 3 seconds. Set aside.
  2. Without cleaning the bowl add GF SR flour, plain yoghurt, ground mixed spice, and sugar to your thermomix bowl. MC on. Mix at speed 4 for 20 seconds, scraping bowl down to ensure everything is combined.
  3. Line your slow cooker with baking paper.
  4. Spoon the batter into your lined slow cooker. After every few spoon fulls, sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mix over it. By the time all your batter is in the slow cooker, you should have used two thirds of the cinnamon sugar mix.
  5. Turn your slow cooker on to high and set timer for two hours.
  6. Once the two hours is finished, heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

    pull the cooked bun out of the slow cooker by the baking paper and place on a baking tray with the baking paper still under it (NB. It will be pale in colour as the slow cooker won't have browned it). Flatten the baking paper down flat on the baking tray.

    In a mug melt the butter (I do this in the microwave to save time). Then add the remaining cinnamon sugar. Stir.

    using a basting brush, spread the buttery cinnamon sugar mix over the bun.
  7. Bake in oven for ten minutes.

    serve immediately with a nice hot drink.

    Once cooled it is nicest when sliced and toasted, or warmed gently in the microwave

    This bread is similar to a damper or sourdough in consistency.

  • This recipe works with 'normal' self raising flour...

    This recipe works with 'normal' self raising flour also. Quantities are the same however you will need to combine the dough with the 'dough' function on your thermomix (icon looks like this ). The reason for this is that GF flour combines more like a batter. Normal flour will make a more traditional stretchy dough (it's the gluten protein that creates the stretchiness). Knead it on a bench with a little extra flour when you turn it out of the bowl. Roll into balls and place them in the slow cooker, sprinkling the cinnamon sugar between the balls. Otherwise follow the same process as above tmrc_emoticons.)
