Thermomix Pumpkin challah

What’s not to love about challah! – so add a tin of puréed pumpkin and you have a match made for sharing. No reason to save this one for thanksgiving- just an anytime wonderful bread. The mixture is quite wet but fear not, it works. There are several great YouTube posts on how to braid a challah, so do have a search for it. I made the four strand plait which was actually really simple and the round. double quantities will be too much for your TM bowl.
Ingredients (adapted from the shiksa in the kitchen) this amount fits into the TM bowl.
To activate the yeast before you start – heat 50ml of water to 37° in TM bowl, add 1 pkt instant yeast and 5g sugar and whizz to mix. Leave in the bowl to bobble for 5 minutes.
Then add
  • 50ml lukewarm water
  • 10g sugar
  • 3 egg yolks and 1 whole egg
  • 30g honey
  • 15 ml canola oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 675g plain flour
  • 200g (about a cup) tinned pumpkin purée
  • 50g brown sugar

Mix this on dough setting, spoon speed, for 4 minutes until well mixed.

Tip into a large oiled bowl, cover and leave in warm place until doubled in size.
Knock the air out and shape either into a 3,4, or 5 part braid – the one pictured is 4- or a a circular loaf.
Set aside on a baking tray and cover until doubled in size.
Brush with an egg wash before baking at 180°C for 25-30 minutes.

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 :)
