Made these pizza pops again to freeze for school lunches. This time flavoured the pizza dough with rosemary and garlic. Just throw a handful of fresh rosemary and two garlic cloves into the TM bowl before following the guided pizza dough recipe. Chop rosemary and garlic at speed 7 until finely chopped. Then follow the guided recipe for pizza dough from there, no need to set aside the rosemary and garlic.
Just made these finger buns today, O….mi…gosh, another recipe from the expert bread maker ThermomummaLailahRose who has published her recipes on her blog thermomumma.com. She posted the jumbo white bread( we used for burger buns) , jumbo wholemeal bread, jumbo fruit loaf (used for fruit bun/loaf ) and this absolutely amazing sweet bun dough which can be used for finger buns or scrolls. Awwww I’m giving them away before we eat the lot. They’re as good as the Bakers Delight buns if not better and freshly homemade. And maybe better than our favourite scrolls using Annabel Langbein’s sticky bun recipe. Bread heavan here today! Baked for 10-15 mins at 190C, ( NB trial and error , fan forced too hot for our oven for these buns and buns were too brown and less fluffy ) then iced with her icing recipe on the link above. Oooooooh they’re so good, like eating fluffy pink clouds!!! Going to do cost comparison and post tonight because can’t resist checking out the numbers. Notes for next time: could glaze before baking rather than ice to reduce sugar content and at second prove check at 45 mins, at just over hour looked like they might overprove some were starting to fall.
( if using fanbake , check buns at 8-10mins )
Recipe from road to loving my Thermomix’s blog. Great recipe, neat new way to use the pizza dough recipe from Basic cookbook. Filled with bacon cheese and herbs. Next time try to fill a bit more , maybe 2 teaspoons of mixture and use more spinach. The kids will love this as an alternative lunchbox item. Figured out it’s better to make double the pizza dough and refrigerate half for use another day. Can be made into bread rolls, grissini sticks, or even more pizza for snacks and lunchboxes.
Made this Jumbo fruit loaf today to give to my father who loves raisin bread, this time with raisins instead of sultanas and it’s perfect. Made rolls instead of a second loaf and they’re amazing, so soft. Couldn’t find instant dried yeast in the supermarket so had to use active dried yeast. The only difference is you have to allow the yeast to activate in the liquid and sugar first( 2 mins, 40c, speed 3)it should foam on top when it’s activated, then add all the other ingredients and carry on with the recipe.
With thunder and lightning outside, it seems like a good night for pasta. Normally use Quirky cooking bolognese for lasagne because it has more herbs and vegetables blended into the sauce .. no need for a extra vegetable dish..but today decided to try the guided recipe. It’s so much easier following guided, only used a tray of mince which is approx 500g instead of 800g so I increased the tomato content. Used fresh tomatoes instead of tinned. And the bechemal sauce is a one step process using 1000g milk and makes double the separate guided recipe for bechemal sauce. The lasagne is great. Everyone is happy and it makes a huge baking dish.
The guided foccacia is one of the easiest breads to make usually only a prove of 40 minutes is enough in a warmed thermomserver. We don’t bother with the second prove, just roughly flatten onto the baking tray, dimple the top, sprinkle with thyme or rosemary and sea salt. It proves in the time it takes to heat the oven. It is so good and any leftover is sliced and bagged into freezer for lunches. Even after making this dozens of times it still surprises us with how consistently good it is, the texture and the taste is better than anything we’ve ever bought even from our favourite bread shop in Auckland Wild Wheat which is just across the road.
Made this fruit loaf ( link above ) by the same recipe creator for the burger buns ( Jumbo White bread ). It had to be good because her bread recipes are reliable and it is! Ooooh it’s actually too good so we have sliced the bread into breakfast portions, given some away and stored the rest straight into the freezer so we don’t eat it all at once. Even left out and eaten the next day it retained it’s freshness. Doesn’t need toasting it’s so delicious with just a spread of butter. Note for next time:- use raisins instead of sultanas.
NB the link for this recipe is now on Thermomummalailahrose’s blog at thermomumma.com see link above, no longer on the recipe community. Thanks to Lailah Rose for publishing on her blog. We were so disappointed to find it missing from the recipe community and thought we’d lost it forever. Definately pays to copy your favourite recipes.
This recipe for Jumbo bread by Thermomumma (link above) makes AMAZING burger buns. This recipe was probably one of the top 10 most popular recipes from the community, always trending. They are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just like all the comments state, makes a bread/buns just like Bakers Delight. The bread rolls we made a couple of days ago (the bestest bread rolls ever) are a little denser than this recipe and make great filled rolls but not soft enough for burger buns.
The dough like all doughs is a breeze to make with the thermomix. Throw everything in TM bowl, mix 15 seconds and then knead on dough mode for 6 minutes. The first prove only 15 minutes, ( just left in the thermomix) then either put into a loaf tin or divide into rolls and prove for approx an hour. Putting buns in oven covered with a tea towel with a bowl of boiling water underneath seems to work well for second prove. Burgers for dinner tonight. Some comments have stated using gluten free flour also still works… Will be trying her recipes for fruit loaf and wholemeal bread next.
We are blown away by how great these burger buns are, you can’t tell they aren’t bought and the texture is just like a Wisconsin burger. Patties blended in thermomix. To my daughters who love burgers ; Blend a piece of bread (use an end), one onion and clove of garlic for a few seconds speed 7, add tray of 500g mince, an egg , salt and pepper, Worcester sauce, tomato paste and mix on dough mode for 45 seconds. Homemade burgers ….they’re better than any burger we’ve ever bought.
