If you have a hard time finding a suitable environment to allow your yeast dough to rise in, especially during cold winters, this tip gives the dough everything it needs to make it double in size easily. After kneading dough, put it into a lightly oiled bowl. Ensure that you have another bowl that is big enough for the dough bowl to fit in. Then put the dough bowl into the larger bowl and fill the larger bowl with warm water (enough to come about ¾ of the way up the dough-bowl). After the water is added, cover the larger bowl with plastic wrap and place both bowls into the oven (heat oven on lowest setting for 5 min. and turn off). It’s a perfect environment for the dough to rise—moist, dark, and warm.
