      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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 Flour and Water to jug.

    Combine 15 seconds, Speed 3.

    Let the dough sit in the jug for 30 minutes.

    Knead for 4 minutes.

    Add in the Yeast, Salt and Improver.

    Knead for a further 4 minutes. The dough will be very wet and sticky.

    Pour into a lightly greased bowl and cover with cling film. Place on the bench and leave to rise for 2 hours.

    Punch dough down, releasing all the gas.

    Place in bread tin or form into freeform loaf shape on a baking tray.

    Cover with cling wrap and let rise again for 2 hours or until proved.

    Bake in a preheated oven at 220 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 180 for a further 15 minutes or until cooked.




*Don't be confused by the flour to water ratio. This is required because the recipe doesn't contain additional Gluten Flour.

*The loaf really needs the second prove to ensure a lighter, fluffier loaf. Wholemeal flour is quite dense and requires lots of time and water to ensure a perfect result.

*I mill my own home grown wheat for this recipe. Make sure you use high protein wheat if you are doing this.

*You can add 1 tsp Wonderfresh with the other ingredients if you like. This is a preservative and keeps your loaf fresh as the day you baked it for about 4 days in an airtight container
