Flour, water, yeast and salt. From this humble quartet, you can make a huge variety of loaves and it’s so much easier than you might think – especially with the help of our bread making kit and accessories.
Imagine the gorgeous aroma filling your house. The crack of the crispy crust as you cut a slice. And the way the butter melts as you spread it onto the warm, doughy crumb. If you’re new to bread making, once you’ve made your first loaf, you won’t go back to shop-bought.
Which bread machine do I need?
You can make it easy on yourself with a does-all-the-hard-work-for-you bread maker. With a range of sizes and models to choose from; from the simple and easy-to-use Lakeland Compact 1lb Daily Loaf Bread Maker for fresh bread every day, or the bigger Lakeland Touchscreen Bread Maker to make not just a larger loaf of bread to last a few days, but also pizza dough, cakes, and even jam! Or, if you already have a customer-favourite Remoska, did you know you can also use it to bake bread too?
Hand-made with love
If a machine’s not your thing, you can roll up your sleeves and give yourself a workout by doing all the mixing and kneading by hand and baking your loaves in the oven.
To get started, you’ll need a large mixing bowl – we’ve got plenty for you to choose from. Next comes the proving basket. These come in different shapes and sizes so you can choose how big or small you want your loaf to be and are made from natural cane to provide the ideal conditions when proving your dough.
Finally when it’s ready to bake, you’ll need either a 1lb or 2lb loaf tin, depending on the size of your loaf, and it’s important to choose one with a non-stick coating, so you’ll turn out the best loaf since... well, sliced bread. Our Lakeland Loaf Tins have two layers of professional non-stick and have excellent heat distribution to make sure your loaf is cooked through evenly.
Or, use the Lékué Silicone Bread Maker, which you can use to mix, prove and bake in.
Make bread making easy
Once you’ve got all the right kit, there’s no reason why you can’t delve in to the world of artisan bread making. We’ve made it so easy to give it a try; we’ve got ready-to-go bread mixes to save you all the measuring or if you want to try different flavours; and Munchy Seeds to add extra taste and texture. Want to have a go at sourdough making but are scared off by the thought of having to grow a starter? Don’t be. Just use a pre-prepared sourdough starter or dough mix to get that authentic taste and texture. It couldn’t be easier (or tastier).
Bread and beyond
Think outside the bread bin. We’ve got gadgets to help you make your own bagels or baguettes; bread knives and electric bread slicers so you get the perfect slice every time; or if you’re looking for bread making gifts, we’ve got recipe books, starter sets, and even a bread serving gift set to put a smile on your favourite baker’s face.
