Caring for your bannetons

If you’re a keen bread baker you probably will have one or more proofing bannetons. These can actually represent quite a bit of financial outlay, if you’ve amassed a collection. The fact that they’re such useful and essential kit for a baker together with the financial investment does mean they need a little looking after.

Seeded maslin loaf

My maslin loaf marries soft white white flour with wholemeal spelt. It produces a light, airy but uniform crumb with a lovely taste and texture. The addition of the seeded top gives added taste, texture and of course all the nutritional benefits that seeds can provide.
