How To Avoid Sticking Of Dough To Bread Trays

Picture this: you've spent hours carefully crafting the perfect dough, patiently waiting for it to rise and eagerly anticipating the mouthwatering aroma that will fill your kitchen. But when it comes time to remove your bread from the bread tray, disaster strikes - your dough is stuck! It's a frustrating situation that many bakers have experienced at least once. So what causes this sticky situation? D and V Plastics Inc. has come up with a blog to address this issue and provide you with a few easy yet effective tips.



How to deal with dough stick with your bread tray?



Proper Greasing and Flouring:

One of the most common reasons why dough sticks to bread trays is improper greasing and flouring. It's essential to ensure that your bread trays are adequately greased and floured before placing the dough in them. You can use butter, oil, or cooking spray. Apply a thin layer evenly on all sides of the tray using a pastry brush or your fingers. This will create a barrier between the dough and the surface, preventing it from sticking.


Using Parchment Paper or Silicone Baking Mats:

These handy tools create a barrier between the dough and the tray, ensuring easy release once baked. Parchment paper is a thin, non-stick paper that can be easily placed on top of the bread tray before adding the dough. Silicone baking mats are another excellent option for preventing sticking. These reusable mats are made from food-grade silicone and can withstand high temperatures in ovens. They provide an even heat distribution which helps with maintaining consistent baking results.


Preheating the Bread Trays:

Preheating the bread trays is a crucial step in ensuring that your dough doesn't stick during baking. When you preheat the trays, it helps create a barrier between the dough and the surface of the tray. This can prevent any sticking or adherence issues.
