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!

Mix starter and water in thermomix gently to combine. Add flour and bread improver, mix Sp3 till just combined. Rest 30-60 mins in TM bowl. Add salt, mix Sp3 30 seconds.
Knead 4 mins - (TM may move around).
Turn into oiled bowl. Rest 30 mins in warm spot. Perform stretch and fold and rest another 30 mins.
Carefully turn onto lightly floured bench trying not to release too much air and gently shape into oblong shape. Roll up and place into oiled loaf tin.
Cover and rest in warm spot 1 hour (I use clear shower cap) then place, covered, in fridge overnight - min 12 hours. The loaf will continue to rise slowly in the fridge.
Heat oven to 240 C . Remove gladwrap and slash loaf lengthwise from end to end (If you miss this step, the bread will burst of its own accord).
Cover loaf tin with another loaf tin of same size. This traps steam created during initial cooking which allows the bread to rise well. See photo. (Simulated Dutch Oven method).
Remove top tin after 20 mins, reduce temp to 210 and continue cooking for another 20 mins. Bread should sound hollow on base. Allow to cool well before cutting.
This sounds complicated but once in a routine, each step takes just minutes.
To perform a 'stretch and fold'- while still in bowl, grab edge of dough, lift and stretch and fold into centre. Turn bowl 90 degrees and repeat 4 times. This helps develop the gluten in the dough.
Placing one tin on top of another to create steam environment simulates placing the loaf in a Dutch Oven and takes away the traditional need to create steam in the oven with water bath. The loaf can go straight from the fridge to the oven.
