Dough Mode 

What is it?

Dough mode primarily mixes yeast-based doughs to improve the texture and quality of sweet and savoury breads.

How does it work?

Dough mode uses both clockwise and anti-clockwise mixing to replicate the effect of kneading dough by hand.

Works best for:

  • Sweet and savoury cooks looking for a croissant at breakfast or a pizza for dinner.
  • Loaf lovers looking for freshly baked bread.
  • No kneaders looking to leave all the hard work to their Thermomix®.

Did you know?

2 minutes of using Dough mode in your TM6 is the equivalent of 10 minutes kneading by hand!

Plus, get perfect baked goods every time thanks to Thermomix® Sensor! Cook with confidence as it measures both internal and ambient temperature, ensuring ideal cooking conditions for crusty loaves and perfectly cooked rolls.

Cold Outside?

The best environment for proving dough is usually a draft-free area that remains between 24-27°C.

In colder weather, or for enriched doughs, create optimal proving conditions by placing the dough in the Varoma dish and using the TM6 Fermentation mode.

Never Ending Possibilities with Dough Mode

Top Tips:

  • • Dough mode can be used with a maximum of 1kg of dough.
  • • Grind whole grains in your Thermomix® to make a variety of wholegrain flours for your breads.
  • • Add ingredients such as raisins, nuts, grated cheese or olives after kneading, then knead again for a few seconds to incorporate.
  • • Doughs such as brioche and cinnamon buns can require longer kneading times because fat (e.g. butter, vegetable oil) can inhibit gluten formation.
  • • To test if your yeast is still active: Place 200 g water, 1 tsp dried instant yeast and 1 tsp caster sugar in mixing bowl and heat 3 min/37°C/speed 2. Transfer to a bowl and leave for 10 minutes. If mixture is frothy and bubbly, the yeast is active. If not, the yeast needs to be replaced.
  • • If the dough is stuck at the bottom of the bowl or around the blade, tip the mixing bowl upside down and twist the blade from underneath to loosen.
  • • To remove sticky bread dough from the blades, remove as much dough as possible from the mixing bowl then mix 5 sec/speed 7.

No yeast? No problem!
