TM 5Please 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!
Add all ingredients listed in the order of the list and using the "Dough mode" dough function set time to knead for 10 minutes and turn dial to start. Wrap in a Thermomat or place in an oiled bowl with cling film to cover. Rest dough in a warm spot until doubled in volume. I just place it in my cold oven and the doughs own warmth is enough heat for the proving process.
On an oiled bench or Thermomat knock down dough until it's fairly flat and all the gasses have been expelled. Roll into a log the length of your bread tin and place it in. This is great for a nice even high top or an even flat top if using a lid. The log can also be cut into 3 or 4 sections with cut edge facing the sides of the tin for a fancier top to your loaf. Place in a cold oven until your dough rises 2/3 of the way up the tin sides. In cooler climates you might want to add a tray of boiling water to the bottom of your oven for this process to be successful.
Without removing your loaf from the oven turn oven on to 180°-200° and bake until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. This could take between 30 - 45 minutes. When loaf is baked empty from tin straight away and cool on a cooling rack before slicing.
This recipe was developed as a variation of the Basic Bread in The Basic Cook Book and the White Bread recipe featured on the back of the Defiance Brand Bakers Flour 5kg bag.I strongly advise seeking advice on max quantities of dough mix for your thermomix when kneading larger quantities in your machine.

Bread Improver is an additive, it improves the fluffiness and shelf life of your bread. Read the label and do some research if you are concerned about this item. This can be omitted or replaced with a more natural alternative such as 2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice or 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar. The tin featured in my photos is a jumbo loaf tin.
A smaller tin can be used just give it a try with what you have or you can purchase from the thermomix Australia mix shop
