      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place all ingredients into the Closed lid in the order listed.
  2. Set the dial to closed lid position and knead for 30 seconds / interval speed. ( The dough should have the consistency of a thick cake batter )
  3. Turn out the dough into a large bowl that has been well oiled (both base and sides) with olive oil.
  4. Cover with glad wrap and leave to prove for 12-24 hours (it will triple in size and be full of large air bubbles.)
  5. Preheat the oven to 220oC
  6. Line a baking tray with Baking paper and dust liberally with plain flour.
  7. Carefully ease the dough out of the bowl and onto the baking tray using either a spatula or dough scraper. Be careful to preserve the pockets of air you have created. This dough is relatively wet.
  8. Using wet fingers grab the edge closest to you and pull up and stretch over to the other side. Then grab the edge furtherest away and pull toward you repeating this process gently shaping .
  9. Lightly spray that dough top with water - this helps to make a crispy crust.
  10. Place a small bowl of water at the base of the oven and then place the dough into the oven on a rack above the water and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when you tap it.
  11. when cooked place onto a rack for 10 minutes before attempting to cut.
