Bread baking frame beech wood
Keeps everything in line. Bread baking support
Bread baking maniacs will know what is meant by a "pushed" bread - and what our baking frame made of beech wood has to do with such a bread. If you don't know? Don't worry, we'll explain.
A pushed bread is the opposite of a freely pushed bread, but it is not called so because it is pushed into the oven with a special momentum, like a broken down vehicle that needs a push. Bakers speak of pushing when they put a large number of loaves into the oven in such a way that they stand loaf to loaf on the baking tray or on the baking plate, i.e. they touch each other and thus provide support during baking. You can recognize a pushed bread by the fact that it has less crust and the finished loaf is soft on the sides. The cut is square or rectangular, as in Hanoverian Gersterbrot or, for example, a classic Doppelback or Paderborn Landbrot. Free-pushed breads, on the other hand, are baked with sufficient spacing, usually have an elongated or more oval to round, flat shape, and a high crust all around. Think of white bread with sticks, a Franconian spice bread or, for example, the famous Manufactum sourdough bread, which you can get fresh every day in our bakery.
Bake at home like the professionals
To make the latter, you won't need a baking frame in your own kitchen. However, this handcrafted utensil made of approx. 1.5 cm thick, screwed beechwood slats is extremely useful exactly when you want to bake a pushed bread, a loaf of loaf bread - or at Christmas time a Christmas stollen. In a household oven there is usually not enough space to bake more than one or two loaves on a seat next to each other, and so the bread baking frame takes over the mentioned supporting and protecting task, it gives the square or rectangular loaf its shape at the same time. The insulating properties of the wood positively influence the baking result and provide the soft "crust" on the sides. Beech wood also has the advantage that it warps only slightly, if at all, when exposed to heat and moisture.
We obtain our baking frames from a workshop for people with disabilities in East Westphalia and offer two variants. Detailed baking and operating instructions are included in each case.
