Khorasan wheat

aga, baking, bread, thermomix

Making bread in the Thermomix is simple, quick, and makes a beautiful bake. I came across whole grain kamut last month at the Gilbert farmers' market. I followed it up with a couple of google searches and brought some back in my suitcase. Actually waitrose do stock it (with the byline 'flour of the Pharos') and the label clearly states khorasan wheat.

I split the 400g flour 50% kamut, 50% whole grain, mixed with 7g instant yeast, 5g salt, 5ml honey ( I prefer honey to sugar) 50ml olive oil ( ring the changes by using a flavoured oil ) and 200g tepid water. Add more water if you think it is too dry as kamut may need more than ordinary bread flour.
Mix all ingredients at speed 3 for 20 seconds. Then dough setting for 90 seconds.

I do the first prove in the Thermomix bowl – saves on washing up. It should be pushing the lid off after an hour. Tip out, either into oiled loaf tin or individual loaf tins ( which I like). I prove for another 30-40 minutes in plate warmer of aga, then bake for 10 minutes in roasting oven for individual loaves (20-25 minutes for a large loaf)

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
