  • Make your dough, put in a greased bowl and flip, to coat both sides. Cover dough with a clean damp dish cloth.
  • Fill a large glass measuring cup half way with water. Heat in microwave until water just comes to a boil and steams up the microwave.
  • Quickly open the door and put the dough bowl in with the water. Close the door before all the steam escapes.
  • By the way, I've never tried it with the dough right on top of the water, like Bonnie's pic. I always push the water to the back corner.

    When I test yeast with half c water (110-115) and a tsp sugar, yeast never grew much. How much growth should I expect to be good yeast?

    Great tip, I put the bowl with the dough in it covered it and placed it on top of a small bowl of hot water then placed it in the oven. The dough doubled in size in less than 20 minutes. Thanks so so much.
