Dryer Dough

I think I've shared here before about my little trick of rising bread dough in the clothes dryer.  I run the dryer for a few minutes on the hottest setting, then turn it off, stick the pan with the dough in, and close the door quickly before all the hot air escapes.  It works wonderfully to cut rise time in half!  However there is a key point about this method:

The dryer must never be turned on while the bread dough is inside!!!


No idea how it happened!

Thankfully the clean-up wasn't too bad and really I had a good laugh the whole time I was scraping the dough out of the inside of the dryer!

And a plus: every load of laundry smelled of fresh baked bread for days afterward!


  1. lol So glad to see your grateful heart in the small things (and the funny things)! That must have been a mess but I like your attitude of how fresh your clothes smelled! Glad to see you over at TT today! ((blessings))

  2. Now that put a smile on my face! I have never heard of raising bread in a dryer (I do it in the oven)... I would have loved to see your face when you realized the dryer was turned on!

  3. Oh my! Thank you for the laugh today. That sounds like something I would do! :)

  4. Oh that is too funny! Thank you for sharing- it made me laugh out loud! I'm glad it didn't make too much of a mess. I'm visiting from the Thankful Thursday link up. Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Glad to see you have a sense of humor about the whole thing!


I'd love to hear what you think!
