      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 the water and yeast into the mixing bowl. Program for 3 min/37°/ speed 2 with the measuring cup.
  2. Add the flour, olive oil, herbs and finally the salt. Program for 5 min/dough mode, without the measuring cup.
  3. Add the drained olives to the mixing bowl and knead again for 1-2 mins/dough mode.
  4. Transfer the dough from the mixing bowl and put it in a large bowl/container and cover with a clean kitchen towel or cling film and leave for 1 hour in a warm place to prove.
  5. Place some baking paper on to a baking tray and sprinkle a little flour evenly onto the paper. Transfer your dough onto the baking paper (use the spatula to get all the dough out!) and sprinkle a little more flour onto the top of the dough. Fold and gently punch down the dough. Shape the dough in ball (or you could try other shapes - such a platting it).
  6. Cover the dough with the clean kitchen towel or cling film - and allow to rise further for about 30 mins.
  7. Lightly score the surface of the dough - see photo and place in the oven at 235°C for 45 mins.
  8. Remove your bread from oven and place on to a grill rack to cool.
