I found this recipe on a red star dried yeast pack. After playing around with it and adapting for the Thermomix the following is what I came up with. They call it a breakfast bread- it's so 'an anytime EAT ME bread' so I have dropped the 'breakfast'.

As this is an American make of dried yeast the measures are volume, so again I have converted to weight.

oatmeal maple syrup bread


  • 230gwater
  • 1 pack/7g quick action dried yeast
  • 1 tbl vegetable oil
  • 450g stong bread flour
  • 100g jumbo oatmeal
  • 100g maple syrup ( I only had a little in my cupboard so I made it up with honey)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 120g raisins (those Californian flame raisins from Wholefoods are soooo good!)
  • 100g pecans



Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F while dough is on second rise

Bring water to 37° in TM bowl

Add yeast and mix for 30 seconds sp 3

Add all other ingredients, keeping nuts and raisins to the side. They will be added AFTER the first rise.

Mix sp4 for 1 minute

Set to dough setting and mix for 3 minutes.

Leave in bowl until doubled in size OR tip into a greased bowl and cover in a warm place if you will need your bowl.

If mix still in bowl knock down by using dough setting for a minute

Tip on silpat sheet and work nuts and raisins through the dough

Pop into a loaf tin or this would work beautifully as mini loaves

Set aside for second rise- about 30-45 minutes

Bake in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes


Amazing toasted!

Note- I wanted the large raisins and pecans to be broken up a little, so I mix then in using the Thermomix after that first rise. If you want them whole just fold them in by hand.

Have a a great day!

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 http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com 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 :)
