    Appliance TM 5 image
    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. Water and yeast in Closed lid for 3 min/ 37 degrees / sp 1.
    (Compulsory for fresh yeast, recommended for dried, but not absolutely neccessary)

    Add all the other ingredients and use dough mode for 4 minutes.

    Let the dough rise in a bowl covered with a damp towel for 1,5h. Afterwards flour a surface in your kitchen and fold the dough like an envelope 3 times to remove air from the dough. In the end form into a loaf shape.

    Grease a bread tin with lid, closed silicone form or your gran's old roasting tin and put the bread in. Now slice through the top of the dough with a sharp knife in a pattern of your choice (otherwise the bread will rip open where it wants to instead of where it should), squeeze some droplets of water on top of it and put into a COLD (!!!!) oven on the lowest rung with a closed lid.
    Bake 50-60 minutes on 240 degree top and bottom heat, the last 10 min without a lid to brown the crust a little.
    Perfectionists add a handful of ice blocks on the oven floor to create a vapour to increase the niceness of crust. This will evaporate as you bake your bread. Enjoy!
