Recipe's preparation

    Walnut and Fig Loaf
  1. 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 .Dough mode

     

    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.

Tip

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

I served it with homemade Honey and Cinnamon Butter

    Submitted by Maida on 1. March 2015 - 12:14.

    The bread looked Devine. It made two big loaves. The fruit and flour mixture was not evenly distributed. I will follow Kenzo's suggestion and put the fruit and walnuts in earlier and only cut the figs In half. I will also increase the figs and walnuts to 1 1/2 times and mix the flours before adding. I think the Thermomix has difficulty with large quantities. My loaves were half brownish colour and have whitish. Maybe I will knead it longer.  Just one question: after knocking the loaf down should I have kneaded the bread a little? I'm really looking forward to making this again as it really was very easy.

    Submitted by Kenzo on 6. May 2013 - 19:36.

    YUM! I made this bread on the weekend and must say that it's one of the nicest fruit loaves I have made! I didn't have figs, so instead used dates, cranberries and currants, as well as the walnuts. I also used half and half wholemeal and bakers flour. Also, I put all the fruit in after about one minute of kneading. This dispersed the fruit very evenly throughout the loaf, but, the fruit was chopped up smaller than expected. I think next time I will omit the fruit chopping section at the beginning and simply add the whole fruit when kneading, as the Thermomix chops while kneading anyway. I just ate a piece toasted and it was really yummy.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  • I made this last week instead

    Submitted by annebarnes on 29. March 2013 - 23:44.

    I made this last week instead of fruit bread (which I make 2 or 3 times a week). It was really nice and a mix of leatherwood honey and cinnamon in butter goes perfectly. I think next time I would turbo the figs & nuts for 1 sec because I would rather have chunky bits in the bread. Thanks for recipe, Anne tmrc_emoticons.)

    Could I use saltanas instead of figs (similar to Coles loaf) as I am having difficulty in finding figs?

    Hi Tanya,


    you forgot to mention to take out the walnuts and figs after chopping and to set aside! I realised this after I had put in my water and essentially boiled my walnuts and figs! 


    The dough is proving now so let's hope the walnuts are still crunchy. tmrc_emoticons.)

    I am going to give this recipe a go. Is it a similar loaf to the one that bakers delight used to make? If it is it will definitely be a winner!


    Not sure - about the one from bakers Delight -this is similar to one form a flour company website.


    i made it for one of cooking classes and let every have a taste to get some feedback - got the THUMBS up.


    I love it - would go great with a cheeseboard


     


    let me know how you go !
