I Baked: Buttermilk Bread

Have I told you that I love my Thermomix yet? Well I do! In a big way. I now understand all of the hype and we have been getting to know each other a lot over the past few days.

On Saturday, I decided to have a go at making butter and in less than 4 minutes I had results of a nice creamy butter and buttermilk also.

Instead of putting the buttermilk in the fridge for later I decided to give the Buttermilk Bread recipe from the Everyday Cook book a whirl.

I know... I'll never be a food photographer!

180g Buttermilk (at room temperature)
200g lukewarm Water
1 sachet dry yeast or 20g fresh yeast
1tsp Salt
500g Bakers Flour
20g oil or Melted Butter

Place all ingredients in TM bowl in the above order and mix for 5 seconds on speed 7.
Set dial to closed lid position. Knead for 3 minutes on Interval Speed.

Rub a little oil into the palms of your hands and remove dough from bowl.
Set aside in a warm place or allow to prove in the oven set to 50 degrees for 30 minutes.
Knead slightly then shape dough into loaf form and set aside again until it has rise to double size.
Place on try and bake in oven for 45 minutes at 200 degrees.

If you don't have a Thermomix, simply combine all ingredients in a bowl using a butter knife to incorporate them well and knead with your hands once the ingredients are combine. Prove the dough for around 3 minutes and then knead slightly and place in loaf tins or make a loaf shape on an oven try and allow it to double in size. Then bake in 45 minutes at 200 degrees.

I divided my dough and placed in two loaf tins to bake. And Viola`
