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!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  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...
