      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

    The following day add flour and egg to your Thermomix bowl.  Mix for 20 seconds reverse speed 4.  Add ingredients that have been soaking including any liquid to the bowl.  Mix with flour and egg on reverse speed 5 for 20-30 seconds.  

    Spoon mixture into a small loaf tin (mine is about 20cms x 15cms and bake at 375 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.

This lovely loaf can be made with cassava flour and half a teaspoon of baking powder.  Egg can be replaced with one tablespoon of chia seeds and a quarter cup of water.  Try changing the dried fruit.  I have made it with dried apricots and dried apple and it is delicious.  

Every oven is different so please check your loaf after 40 minutes by inserting a skewer in the centre.  If it comes out clean the loaf is cooked.  If not, give it another 10 minutes and check again.
