1. The ideal temperature for the yeast to rise is between 30°C and 40°C.

At lower temperatures, it takes longer for the yeast dough to increase in volume.

2. If the appliance is not equipped with a proving programme, proceed as follows:

  • Set the oven to 30-40°C with any type of heat setting.
  • Let the appliance heat up for 5 minutes and then switch off the oven.
  • Then put the bowl with the yeast dough in the oven cavity. Since the yeast dough needs moisture to rise, cover the bowl with a damp cloth, for example.
  • Close the oven door.
  • After about 20 to 30 minutes, the dough should have increased in volume and can be processed further as described in the recipe.
