- 80 grams walnuts
- 160 grams dried figs
- 350 grams water
- 2 teaspoon dried yeast
- 450 grams baker's flour
- 150 grams wholemeal flour, Or wholemeal spelt flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 20 grams oil, Neutral Flavoured
- 1 teaspoon mixed spice, Or Cinnamon
Place Walnuts and Figs into TM Bowl. Press turbo for 2 seconds only. Check and repeat if neccesary. You do not want these processed too fine - just a rough chop, Remove from bowl and set aside
No need to clean TM bowl.
Weigh water into TM Bowl - Set 37 degrees - 1 minute 30 seconds - Speed 1
Add yeast, flours, sugar, salt, oil and spice.
Set timer for 6 minutes - Interval setting .
After 5 minutes add walnuts and Figs through hole in the lid. Do not add these before you have a cohesive dough or it will affect the kneading process.
Turn dough out onto Thermomat or lightly floured board. Bring dough together - and divide into 2 equal portions . ( I weigh the dough )
Place each portion into an oiled bowl or your Thermoserver . Cover with cling wrap. or your Thermoserver lid. (TIP - i oil or spray the glad wrap so that it does not stick to the dough as it rises) place in a warm spot and allow to rise until doubled - at least half an hour. Time needed will also depend on the temperature of the day.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees fan forced.
Once your dough is risen, knock it down by lightly punching the dough - turn it onto your Thermomat or floured board and shape as you like.
Place onto lined oven trays (or you could use a pizza stone) Score the top of the dough if you wish with a sharp knife and sprinkle with a little wholemeal flour.
Leave again to rise until doubled - approx another 30 minutes.
Cook for 20 - 25 minutes - or until your loaf sounds hollow when you tap on the bottom.
Tip - a tray of water in the bottom of the oven will give you an extra crispy crust.

Accessories you need
You can increase the proprtion of wholemeal flour to baker's flour, however this will make your loaf heavier.
