Silicone Bread maker

aga, baking, bread, Uncategorized

A quick review of my latest purchase from Lakeland- the lékué silicone breadmaker. The claim is that you can weigh, mix, prove, and bake all in this clever silicone 'bowl'. I made my bread in the Thermomix, but then proved and baked in the silicone. Result- lovely bloomer shaped loaf with crusty base. If you want a French style round loaf don't fasten the top. I cooked in the aga so that worked too.

First impressions? I think it will be £17 well spent. Super easy, minimum washing up, all good!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. The bread is beautiful. Thanks for a “heads up” on such a great gadget. I’ll keep an eye out for it in kitchen shops on “this side of the pond.” 🙂 I make huge batches of dough, which keeps for 10-14 days, covered, in the fridge, then bake it a loaf or two at a time. The sil bowl/baker certainly streamlines the operation for small batches. I”m looking forward to exploring your beautiful site! Best wishes, WG


    • Thanks you so much! What lovely comments. You are right about the size of loaf- I tried to prove a 500g loaf and it was too much for it but perfect for smaller size. Thank you for the follow- I always love to hear if you give any a try. anne


      • Anne, I love baking bread, and bake several times a week during the fall and winter. I captured my own sourdough starter last winter, and kept it going for several months. Delicious! I’m looking forward to following your cooking adventures 😉 best wishes, WG


    • Haha I am not in Arizona at the moment so it’s a bit of trek even for inveterate traveller such as yourself- for a bit of bread. 🙂


    • Thank you Barbara. Yes I do cut and freeze parts of loaves. That’s why I like to make individual loaves – nice for dinner parties. Or I just give it away!


i'd love to hear from you...
