Fruit Bread


500g Bakers Flour
2 tsp Dry Yeast (1 sachet)
2 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp  Salt
50g Oats
250g Mixed Dried Fruit
30g Honey
30g Olive Oil
500g Lukewarm Water [original recipe but I would perhaps reduce to 300 g water]  


  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C.
  2. Place dried fruit in TM bowl and set dial to closed lid position and turbo twice to desired size. Set aside.
  3. Place all ingredients:- water, yeast, flour, oats,  salt, oil, honey and fruit into TM bowl. Set dial to closed lid position and knead 3 minutes on interval speed.
  4. Scrape into 23cm round/square grease pan or bread pan. Sprinkle top with poppy, sunflower or simply leave plain.
  5. Set aside covered with bread mat in warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
  6. Bake in oven for 40 minutes. (depending on your oven may take longer but do not overcook – should be very moist.
  7. Allow to stand 10 minutes then remove and put onto cooling rack covered with a tea towel until cool.
  8. Slice and spread with homemade butter.

HINTS & TIPS  Instead of mixed fruit use just one fruit such as raisins (to make raisin toast), sultanas or apricots. Slice and store in the freezer so the bread stays moist.  Enjoy!

    Should this be 500g or 500mls of water? My mixture is like cake batter, but I’m hoping for a good result.

    • Hello Jenny,
      How did the bread turn out?? I believe the weight for water in mls and grams are equal so hopefully even if the result was wetter than the usual bread mix. I haven’t made this bread as yet but is a recipe from one of our team members who loves this loaf 🙂 I usually do approx 300 g water to 500 g flour. If the results weren’t as you expected let me know and I’ll check with Nola.
      Cheers, Simone x

        Hi Simone
        Unfortunately major flop but I was able to use it in bread and butter pudding. I initially put in 500ml but using the scales I had to add almost the same again to get to 500 grams so I had a very sloppy mixture which I had to cook for about 1 1/2 hours.
        I should have followed my instincts but I will try again.

      • Oh no Jenny though I am so pleased you could save it. Yes, always trust your instincts 🙂 It may pay to just double check your Thermomix scales (i.e. scale pads clean, Thermomix on flat level surface, cord fully extended etc) as 500 g water should be on par with 500 ml of water. However I think I would reduce the water to 300 g. Another member of our team has made a similar fruit bread and this I have tried and it is beautiful – 🙂

    Hi Simone, my scales were out. I found a large crumb under one foot so it was easy to fix. Thanks for picking up on this.

    Hi Simone, great bread. My dad reckons it’s better than store bought, which of course most Thermomix stuff is! To prove that, I have actually written a book comparing store bought foods to those that you can make in the Thermomix to show how Thermomix meals can be healthier and often cheaper and at least as fast to make, if not faster than using packet mixes. It is available on ibooks, sony and amazon. I would love you to have a read and let me know what you think.

  6. G’day! I made this today and came out great, true!
    Here’s a photo that will be feature via my blog should you wish to view!
    perfect as is; next time I might add a little more water…thank you!
    Cheers! Joanne
