Use Heating Pad When Letting Dough Rise

contest winner icon

Whether it is summer or winter, when I am trying to get a yeast dough to rise, I place a heating pad on low underneath the pan of dough. Cover with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray and place a kitchen towel on top to keep the warmth inside. Doing it this way ensures the dough will rise every time and I don't have to wonder if the air is too cold without the heating pad "help".

This is a great idea. I usually set my bowl of dough on top of the clothes dryer to rise but I'm not always doing laundry when I want to bake bread! I'll certainly try this next time.

A word of caution using a heating pad. The pad even on low may be too warm for the yeast and kill it prematurely. Using a heavy towel or a cookie rack under the pan will give the bread pan a buffer against the high heat.

I think as well one must be careful even with the setting on low ... too high of a heat can kill the yeast. Also don't leave unattended (electrical appliance).

Instead of using heating pad, I cover mine with clean dish towel and put in oven. Preheat at lowest setting and then cut off and keep the light on.
