    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

    Seed Preparation
  1. You will need a BIG bread tin for this dough - see tips section for dimensions

    Time will depend on how blitzed you want your seeds to be - eg just chopped 4 seconds/fine powder 15 seconds

  2. Weigh in all seeds into bowl, blitz on speed 6 until chopped to your liking. Leave in bowl

  3. Dough
  4. Weigh in warm water (on top of seed mix) then add yeast. Allow to site and activate for a few minutes

  5. Add remaining ingredients IN ORDER!

  6. Mix on speed 6 for 30 - 45 seconds, slowly increasing speed. You may need to use the spatula to help particularly in the TM31 as the dough mix will be at maximum bowl capacity. I only mix until the dough begins to come together.

  7. KneadDough mode for 3.5 minutes then tip into a greased and floured bread tin for proving. I tip the dough in 2 halves, one up each end of the tin.

  8. Allow to prove in a warm spot (outside in the sun is good!) until the dough has risen above the tin.

  9. Place in a cold oven, turn oven to 175 degrees - bread will then get a second proving. Bake for 45 minutes until bread is a golden colour and hollow when tapped. Allow to cool slighty before transfering to a wire rack.


Accessories you need



I use a BIG tin for this bread. It's 29cm long, 15cm wide and 12 cm high.

Bread is not simple - it even depends on the weather! 

On a warmer day it will take a shorter time to prove then on a colder day.

Never cut into hot bread - it is still cooking/drying out for at least 5-10 mins after taking it out of the oven.

Never put salt directly on top of yeast mix. Salt deactivates yeast - trust me I learnt this the hard way!

If you don't have a sunny spot to prove your bread in, place on top  of a warm appliance eg: modem, DVD player

Put a container over the top of your tin when proving, then a tea towel, it quickers the process

If at first you don't succeed - try, try again!
