Help with a bread proving basket
Hi... I'm fairly new to baking bread and up until now I've been using a 2lb loaf tin for my loaves. I've now invested in a 500g cane proving basket but mistakenly thought this referred to the amount of flour in the recipe, which I've since discovered refers to the dough weight.
Well I'm stuck with my purchase and every recipe I have seems to use at least 500g of flour, which is going to result in a heavier dough once the water is added. Does anyone have a recipe for or any advice about using a 500g proving basket?
Should I just try a 500g flour weight recipe and see how it goes? I don't really want to make more than one loaf at a time, as I'm only baking for 2 people. Many thanks
