I do not like to bake cakes very much, but I love to bake bread and other goodies with yeast.
I am good with yeast, I enjoy the process! (said the humble baker ;-) )
I enjoy covering the dough with a clean baking cover and I enjoy covering the fresh bread with the same cover after.
Here are my baking covers, including the one over the breads - one with cross stitching on it, one with a simple applique (not ironed after washing yet), one vintage plain white with a lovely pattern in the fabric and one in printed linen I bought in Tallinn, Latvia, last year.
I have recently bought these 2 embroidery kits for baking covers and plan to do one in brown and one in red embroidery.
They are bought at my favourite quilt shop, Lappemakeriet.
Visit their new blog!
I also want to make this baking cover, with a traditional nursery /baking rhyme on it. It is cute!
The design is from Northern Quilts, just like the Christmas Hearts.
One of my good memories from years back is when my grandmother had baked bread very late in the evening when I came home to their house during vacations, after hanging out with friends during my teenage years.
My grandmother always baked the very very best bread and she used a baking cover similar to my vintage white one.
Lately some have started using plastic behind their baking covers, but I do not like that, as it limits the baking covers to the dough only.
It makes the dough rise faster, but in my not so humble opinion I think that yeast dough is better when it is not rising that fast.
You can not cover your bread, cakes or cookies after with a plastic cover either.
May Britt has blogged about her baking covers too - take a look and drop in later this week, both here and there for a nice surprise :-)
