baking, bread, thermomix

Cinco de Mayo seamed as good an excuse as any for a girlie get together and an opportunity for me to try out some new (to me) Mexican recipes.

These are the dishes I made and I will give details on several of them in coming posts.

  • Chilli bread
  • Quesadillas
  • Guacamole
  • Deshebrado – shredded chicken
  • Tomato salsa
  • Tres leches cake

First off, Thermomix chilli bread -from the my way of cooking book is amazing. I thought it sounded good but let me say if you like a bread with a kick, this is it, and so very easy. Be prepared eating green bread is a bit weird!


Chilli bread

  • Servings: 10-12
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


1 green chilli, deseeded (or ½ if you prefer less of a 'full on' bite) NB chilli strength is hugely variable so I medium chilli is about right.

200g green bell peppers or poblano chilli (if you can source them)

80g onion

25g oil

1 tsp salt

30g sugar

60g butter

1 egg

550g flour

10g instant yeast


Chop the chilli, peppers and onions sp 6 for 7 seconds.

Add oil, salt and heat 8 minutes, sp10, 3 seconds

Add sugar, butter and egg, mix sp10 for 3 seconds

Tip in the flour and instant yeast, mix on dough setting for 2½ minutes

Set aside (leave in TM bowl if you can spare it) until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Tip into a loaf tin (30x12x10cm) or a tin of your choice. I used my silicone loaf form. Cover and leave to rise for about 40 minutes.

Preheat oven to 180°C/360°F

Before baking brush with an egg yolk or dust with flour, depending on the kind of finish you want.

Bake for about 35 minutes.

This bread was surprisingly good. A couple of days later toasted with cheese it is still a winner.
Thanks for reading.

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 :)

i'd love to hear from you...
