Second Rising

During the final rising (proving) the dough again fills with more bubbles of gas, and once this has proceeded far enough the doughs are transferred to the oven for baking.

 

General appearance - large gas holes lined with gluten with smaller holes and ingredients in between these. (Electron microscope view)

 

After two hours rising gluten strands form a lattice as the dough reaches the required size. (Electron microscope view)
