      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 230 g milk

    3 min/100°C/speed 1 (you're wanting to froth up the milk slightly, you don't want it to bubble over so keep an eye on it)

    While the milk is heating up, prepare an ice bath for the milk. Put a bunch of ice and water in a big bowl.

    Once the milk has been heated, pour it into a completely separate bowl from the ice water bowl. Place the milk bowl into the ice water bowl to cool the milk to room temperature.

    Back to the Thermomix - add 60 g water

    Add the cooled milk

    Add 6 g yeast

    10 min/37°C/speed 2

    Add 525 g high-grade flour

    Add 55 g sugar

    Add Egg

    Add a teaspoon of salt

    Add 1 tablespoon improver

    7 sec/speed 6

    Switch to dough mode and knead for 10 minutes, adding 25 g olive oil at the beginning of the knead mode.

    Tip dough out onto a floured surface and work into a ball.

    Lightly spray a large bowl with olive oil (to stop the dough from sticking), and then place the dough ball inside the bowl. Cover bowl with a tea towel or plastic wrap and leave to rise until it doubles (roughly an hour)

    After an hour (or when the dough has doubled in size), punch down the dough. Weigh the dough, and using a calculator divide the total weight by 40. Usually this is around 40 grams. Split the dough into equal parts and work into small balls.

    Place each ball on a tray, with roughly 5cms between each one. Once completed with all the dough, cover again with either a tea towel or plastic wrap, and leave until the balls double in size (again its usually around an hour).

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.

    Once preheated (and the dough balls have doubled in size), place them in the oven. After placing in the oven, spray lightly with water (3 sprays is fine - a light mist is all you want).

    Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the tops are golden

    Remove from oven and let rest before eating and/or storing.

    Optional - brush the tops with melted butter directly after removing from oven to give it that glossy look.
