getting your dough to rise

We have no problems during the rest of the year in the conservatory but a cold snap usually puts a mockers on it. Solved the problem with one of those microwave warmed wraps that you use for aches and pains. Put the proving basket on top and bingo, lovely bread.

I put the proving basket for my sourdough bread  on a shelf in the bathroom  - it's the warmest room in winter !

I recently tried a recipe for spelt bread using a poolish (starter) which can be left in the fridge overnight.  Never tried such a thing before but it worked brilliantly and is the best bread I've made using yeast and wholemeal flour of any type.   They've always been too heavy and dense before this.
