Lakeland Round Bread Dough Proving Basket 25cm
For an easy way to make your home-made loaves look like the ones you buy in an artisan bakery, you need a Dough Proving Basket like this one.
Made from natural cane, not only does it provide the ideal conditions when proving your dough, its round shape helps your loaf keep its shape as it rises, and its woven design leaves a circular pattern that gives your bread a suitably rustic appearance when baked. It's also great for serving up home-made bread rolls at the table.
Oval proving basket also available.
25cm Dia. x 8.5cm H.
3 Bread Dough Proving Basket Pattern Inserts
If you're looking for an easy way to give your home-made loaves an artistic appearance, just place one of these inserts in your bread proving basket and, as your dough rises, an imprint of the pattern is left on your loaf for a professional-looking, rustic finish that wouldn't look out of place in an artisan bakery.
Easy to use
Just place one of the reusable wooden inserts (the set comprises sun, honeycomb and heart designs) pattern-side up into your proving basket, flour well to prevent sticking, then put your dough on top to prove. When you turn out your dough, remove the insert and you’'l see the pattern has been imprinted on the top of your loaf, ready for baking in.
Each insert 13.5cm Dia.
Lakeland Linen Couche for Bread Proving Basket
If you like to make your own bread, you'll know that one of the secrets to a successful loaf is in the proving. You need something that wicks away moisture and reduces stickiness, helps maintain the shape of your dough and results in a crisper crust. Step forward the Linen Couche – a cosy linen blanket for doing your final prove before baking.
Wrap it up
As you might have already guessed from the name, couches are widely used in France, and it's fair to say they know a bit about bread making. You could line your proving basket with a tea towel, but this traditionally woven Linen Couche has been specially designed for the job. Simply place the couche in your proving basket, put your dough in the middle and wrap it up in the blanket – it’s nice and big so will go round the largest balls of dough – and leave it to do its stuff.
Your reward? Perfectly proved loaves, ready for baking to crisp-crusted deliciousness.
Made from 100% natural, undyed flax linen. Machine washable at 40°C.
If baking baguettes is more your bag, there’s a linen couche available for them too.
Approx. 47cm Sq.
