- For "Proofing Oven":
- Boil 2 or 3 cups of water in the same pyrex measuring cup in the microwave, covered with a moist paper towel to prevent splash overs for several minutes.
- Adding a few peanuts or beans into the water will help prevent “exploding water“).
- Move the measuring cup with hot water to the back corner of the microwave to provide heat and moisture and make the microwave a “Proofing Oven“ for the dough. Oil the dough and put it in a Metal Bread Pan, and cover with Plastic Wrap. Set the dough into the microwave and let rise for at least 30 to 45 minutes.
