Our 1kg brotforms make a super gift.  They are made from compressed wood-fibre and although one might assume that because wood fibre is biodegradable they might be flimsy, they are not.  They are suitable for heavy use and will last for years if cared for correctly.  I love this sunshine design  and it will make the most ordinary of loaves look really pretty.

Lined proving baskets need to be be dusted with rye or a combination of rice and white flour flour prior to each use. When the dough is shaped and ready for its final prove, it should be placed in a proving basket and the dough proved until it is ready to go in the oven at which point, the dough is tipped out and you score dough in a circle around the outside of the design and and bake as usual.
