How to proof bread

To Proof:

  • Proofing bread prepares dough for baking by activating the yeast. Check dough periodically for progress.

  1. Cover dough with lightly oiled waxed paper and place temperature safe bowl(s) on rack.

  2. Set control knob to PROOF setting.

  3. Place vent on MOIST setting.

  4. Verify doneness by pressing 2 fingers ¹⁄₂" (1.3 cm) into dough. If indentation remains, the dough is ready.

  •  For second proofing of dough, repeat steps 1-4.
