Cheese & Basil Knots

From the Thermomix UK Website Recipe List

These bread rolls are lovely and look wonderful. The great thing is that they are so easy and quick to make!….


1 tsp granulated sugar

400 gm strong white flour

1 tsp salt

80 gm cheddar cheese

Small handful of fresh basil leaves

30 gm fresh yeast or 2 tsp instant yeast

200 gm warm water

50 gm olive oil


Place first five ingredients into the bowl of the Thermomix. Chop cheese into the flour by pulsing with the Turbo button several times. Add remaining ingredients. Mix 6 – 20 seconds at Speed 3 until the dough has formed into a ball that begins to clean the sides of the bowl. If too dry, add a little more water (common with organic flours).

Knead 1½ minutes at the kneading setting. Tip Thermomix bowl upside down on greased baking tray. Loosen blades by undoing the blade unit at the base. The weight of the blades will help the dough to drop out of the bowl onto the baking tray. Pull any remaining bits of dough off the blades and out of the bowl. Form into 8 long sausages of dough and tie each one into a loose knot. Lightly oil the top of the knots. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise until doubled in size. On a folded tea towel or chef’s pad on top of the simmering plate of the Aga is a perfect place. A warm airing cupboard also works well.

Conventional Oven: Bake at 220°C approximately 15 minutes.
