Bread Proofing Baskets – give your bread the perfect look

Have you ever wondered why artisan breads always look nice and evenly shaped? Most likely because your baker has used a bread proofing basket. These useful utensils help to keep your loaf of bread in shape. They can be round or oblong – whatever you want your bread to look like. Depending on your recipe, just prepare your dough and let it rest in a fermentation container for a couple of hours, finish it off by scoring it to give it a unique style – and then just place it in the oven. All your breads will come out more evenly and in consistent shapes. By using the baskets, your baked goods will not only taste amazing, they also will look even more mouth-watering. In our online shop you will find a wide range of fermentation baskets in different shapes and sizes to suit your needs. Read more

How to use a bread proofing basket

Before you put in your dough, you should coat it with a thin layer of flour. This way it will come out of the box without sticking to the material. Then bring your mixture into the desired shape. For a round bread knead it into a ball shaped form, for an oblong shape stretch and roll it according to your recipe. Finally, according to the type of bread you are going to make, either put in the dough with the smooth side first into the bread proofing basket or the other way round. Lay a damp baking towel or a plastic wrap on top of the basket. During fermentation, yeasts spring into action and break down the grain’s starch. As a result of this, carbon dioxide is released and makes the bread rise to its final form. When you find this process is finished, check whether the still unbaked loaf of bread is ready by touching it firmly with a finger. If it returns into its previous shape, it is now ready for the oven.
