A favorite in European bakeries for generations, this proofing basket is called a Brotform in Germany and a banneton in France. Crafted of natural cane and shaped for round loaves, it allows the dough to rise evenly into a uniform shape, while the rattan coils draw out moisture to promote a crispy crust. Spiral indentations left by the coils bake into the bread, so loaves come out with a classic artisanal finish; line the basket with cheesecloth if you prefer a smoother finish.

how do you transfer dough from proofing basket to loaf pan?Hi kimberly, When the dough has risen, remove it from the basket, gently expel the air, and shape it into a ball or loaf. Your dough-rising basket should not need much cleaning. Simply shake the excess flour out after each use, and if dough has stuck to it, wait until it dries, then use a stiff brush to take it off. If for some reason you need to clean your basket, use a stiff brush and warm water (no soap), and allow it to dry at room temperature.Date published: 2019-05-24
