Quick Tips & Ideas

Slow Down Bread Rising

Additional bread rising tips:
  • Slow down rising bread dough by placing it in a glass bowl, covering with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 8 to 10 hours.
  • Place rising bread dough in an area where the temperature ranges from 75 to 80 degrees F will result in the dough rising at a quicker rate.
  • A cooler temperature will cause the dough to rise more slowly, but the flavor and texture of the bread often improves.
  • For most types of bread, the dough should be allowed to rise until about doubled in size.
  • To determine if the dough has risen sufficiently, simply press on the dough with a finger. If it springs back quickly, the bread needs more rising time, but if the indentation remains, the dough has properly risen.
