Justicemum’s Softest White Bread – Thermomix

I’ve been on a few pages lately and the discussion about making bread has been had. I’ve got a fail proof recipe that I’d love to share with you. I’ve used it for months now, and have not had a fail since I’ve perfected it.

At first, making bread was daunting and exhausting as I had so many loaves like bricks. Seriously, they would kill ducks! The amount of produce I’ve wasted is very high too. So I did some research on making bread. Tried many different recipes and then kind of just winged it. I’m lucky I write everything down…

So without further ado, I bring to you:

Justicemum’s Softest White Bread

This makes 1 large loaf or 12 rolls.

What you need:

  • 1 Vitamin C tablet
  • 300gm cold water
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 500gm bakers flour
  • 1 tsp salt

What you do:

  • On speed 7 throw the Vitamin C tablet through the lid to crush. It only takes a few seconds.
  • Add the water. Heat to 37deg/2 mins/speed 4
  • When it reaches 37deg, add the yeast. Mix speed 4/10 sec.
  • Add the sugar, mix speed 4/10 sec
  • Add flour then salt.
  • Mix speed 5/10 sec.

  • Kneed 6 mins.
  • Turn out on to your ThermoMat or into an oiled bowl and cover it with a damp teatowel. Put it in a warm place. It will take 20-45 mins to double in size, depending on the house temperature.
  • Once it has risen, knock the bread down. This is the fun part!
  • Now you can make your rolls, loaf, cheese and bacon scrolls…etc. Let it rise again on the tray/in the tin you will be baking in. This could take another 40 minutes.
  • Put into a pre-heated over (around 180oC) and keep an eye on it. Bread can take anywhere from 20-45 minutes depending on your oven. Once its brown, it should be ready. Turn it out and tap the bottom. A hollow sound should be heard. Then it’s ready.
  • Let it cool before cutting.

Tips:

  • Before mixing all the ingredients, you could add some seeds, linseed, chia or sesame to make it a bit different.
  • If you don’t want to use sugar, you could substitute maple syrup, or Stevia.
  • Be patient with it rising. Bread can take 2-3 or more hours to make, so give yourself enough time. Don’t rush the rising, it will effect the outcome.
  • You could use wholemeal flour too.
  • Don’t give up. Once you perfect bread, you will never buy it again.
  • This loaf costs under $2 to make but its so much better than store bought bread.
  • It’s very easy to freeze.

Let me know if you try this and what you think!!
