Should you use a lid on your Bread Tin?

The purpose of a bread tin lid is to restrict and shape the rise. The lid contains the rising dough within, contributing to a perfectly cube shaped loaf.

If you’re looking for an expressive rise, then leave the lid off. The dough will expand past the tin rim and should balloon above it.
