Thermomix Milk bread

You can ring the changes easily with this basic milk bread recipe from TM Fast and Easy Cooking just by shaping it differently. I like to be able to freeze most of a batch and just defrost a couple of rolls or a small loaf as I need them.

The recipe combines

  • 400g milk ( I use a non dairy alternative, such as almond, and always bring my bread liquids to 37°- tepid, in the TM bowl first)
  • 1 egg (beaten in with the milk)
  • 650g white bread flour ( I used King Arthur)
  • 1 sachet (7g) fast action yeast
  • 15g salt
  • 2 tsp stevia
  • 50g unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
  • Flaked salt and seeds to finish

Pulse the dry ingredients and butter together until you have a breadcrumb consistency. Then add the milk and egg mixture through the TM lid while the blades are running at sp3.

Knead on dough setting for 3 minutes before tipping out into a large oiled bowl and setting aside, covered, to prove until doubled in size- about an hour, depending on where you are resting it. When I am at home in guernsey I have my trusty aga and pop it into the plate warmer, while in Arizona I just put it in the sun!


Tip out onto a floured silicone mat and then just shape as you like. I used some cute silicone donut shaped moulds and I think they turned out really well. This quantity was enough for 4 mini loaves and 6 individual donut shapes. Leave for second prove in the tin/mould for about 30-40 minutes before glazing with milk and sprinkling seeds/salt.


Bake in 230°c/450°F oven for about 5 minutes before turning the temperature down to 200°C/400°F for another 5-10 minutes depending on size of bread. For a traditional size loaf you'll need longer. Remember oven temperatures differ, so know your oven.


Serve with Thermomix lemon curd for a match made in heaven 🙂


Have a great day!

    Sorry! What is stevia?


    1. vannillarock says:

      It’s a sugar substitute- taken from a South American plant. No calories and is a substitute if you are looking for cane sugar alternatives. You can if course just use sugar. Anne
