Easy Thermomix Bread Recipe

Inspiration: The Thermomix bread recipe I bake most often is a modification of the basic Brioche dough found on page 116 of the cookbook “Everyday Cooking for Every Family”.  I enjoy making this bread because there is no floury mess whatsoever, especially when using the Thermomix Silicone Mat. Here is my version.

Easy Thermomix Bread
Cuisine: Thermomix
Recipe type: Bread, Baking
  • 630 g (22.2 oz) flour (use one type only or combine whole wheat/ multigrain/regular flours)
  • 25 g (0.9 oz) sugar
  • 300 g (10.5 oz) warm milk and water combined
  • 10 g (0.4 oz) regular granulated yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50 g (1.8 oz) olive oil
  • 30 g (1 oz) butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ tsp. ascorbic acid (This is simply powdered Vitamin C. It is readily available in North American healthfood stores. If not easy to find near you, just omit and you'll be fine.)
  1. Put sugar in bowl and pulverize for 3 seconds at speed 9.
  2. Add warm liquid (water/milk), yeast, salt, butter, olive oil, flour, egg, ascorbic acid powder into the Thermomix bowl. Mix to combine for 10 seconds on speed 7.
  3. Set dial to closed lid position. Knead for 3 minutes on Interval speed.
  4. Remove dough and let rise for 30-60 minutes. (I put my dough in a bowl in the oven, at temperature 100°F/37° C. This way it rises nicely in about 30-45 minutes, depending on whether or not I have added the ascorbic acid.)
  5. After dough has risen, place into loaf pan or divide to make plaited bread. I usually paint with a wash of egg-white/milk, or egg-white/water, or milk/water... whatever is handy.
  6. Bake in a hot oven at about 395° (200ºC) for about 30 minutes, to golden brown. (I have a gas oven with convection option. Usually, I make two small plaits of bread and with the convection setting, they are ready in about 22 minutes.) So easy!
Also tastes great with Herbed Garlic Butter . . .

    I don’t know this recipe but I have found a favorite at the thermomix forum – it comes from Miriam from an Italian forum – I have made it many times as individual milkbreads and the taste is wonderfull. This is the link: http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=145.0 Your photos are fantastic.

    Thanks for the link Barbara! We love the forum – recommend and use it all the time. The recipe you point out is perfect for those who want a little sweeter bread. I’m not a sweet tooth, so I downplay the sugar and I’m so frugal that I use water instead of milk whenever I can get away with it…

    Glad you like the photos. More coming soon. (There are about 200 in the camera right now fighting to be next on the blog…)

    Hi Helene, Thank you for your wonderful website, recipes, and photos! You really make TMX cooking fun. :)
    My question relates to this bread … I am new to TMX and baking bread. I followed your recipe, and the bread looks amazing, but its very dry and crumbly inside.
    Do you know what I might have done wrong?
    Thanks, Jennifer

    Hi Jennifer and welcome to Thermomix and bread-making and all the other good things you are about to explore! I’m so glad to hear you enjoy this blog but sorry to hear that your bread was not thoroughly successful. Now please remember I am not a baker either… just an enthusiastic home cook with a Thermomix. My first thought is that you may not have had enough water. This might especially be true if you used a high proportion of freshly-milled whole wheat. Or… if the weather was particularly hot and dry… Or… perhaps you could reduce baking time by 5 minutes where you live? Altitude can also affect bread recipes. There are so many factors and I encourage you to try again. I think you’ll agree, it’s fun to practice, isn’t it? By the way, did you check the MANY notes about this bread on the forum? That forum is an excellent resource and offer much for new Thermomix owners. If you haven’t checked it yet, I heartily encourage you to do so. Bravo to you for giving this bread a go — I hope you’ll try again with improved results. It’s truly my ‘go to’ bread around here!

    Thank you! I will certainly try again. I need a basic bread recipe that cooks well in a loaf pan.
    By the way … I’ve been making your Mediterranean Olive Bread a few times a week & it’s wonderful!

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I am very new to Thermomix and very excited about it. Haven’t had much success with bread so far, until this one. Mine doesn’t pull apart as nicely as this photo looks though. I also used a bakers whole meal flour. thanks again and please keep on tweaking those EDC recipes.

    WOW! Finally I’ve found a recipe that tastes like and looks like bread! This I a wonderful mix and tastes fantastic. All my loaves so far that I’ve made without a bread machine are always heavy and crumbly. Not this one. Soft and light! Thank you so much.

  8. ThermomixBlogger Helene February 27, 2013 at 11:15 pm #

    Yay! Thanks so much for your feedback on this recipe. You made my day Kerry!

    This bread is amazing! I made butter first, then used the leftover buttermilk as the milk component and used water for the rest! So delicious, thank you!

    Ooh, right on Emily, way to go!

    I am new to TM and also to breadmaking. I came across this useful site which gives a quick problen diagnosis with a corresponding (possible) cause.

    I guess it is not completely failsafe – but it has helped me!



    I have no association with the company Red Star
