Cane (rattan) bannetons have a spiral pattern that imprints onto the dough giving it that "sourdough signature". This cane banneton or bread proofing basket with wooden base is designed to hold about 1kg/2.2lb dough during the final proof, in order to help the dough hold its shape during baking.

Size guide

Dust liberally with a non-wheat flour such as rye, or our favourite here, rice flour, to avoid sticking before carefully placing your dusted and shaped dough top-side down into your basket.

Once it has proofed (almost doubled in volume), carefully tipped out into a baking dome, Dutch Oven, onto a sheet, baking stone or your peel dusted with semolina flour and then score with a lame for baking.

If you are using a baking dome or Dutch Oven, replace the dome and place in the oven. To make things even easier, you could use a BreadMat.

Between use: allow the banneton to dry out, brush out the excess flour and store in a dry place ready for your next use.
