Just took a loaf of Jim Lahey's No-Knead Bread
out of the oven.
I had to get creative in order to make it because our house is generally coolish and I had to provide a 70F place for the dough to rest for its first 18 hours.
I put on my thinking cap and came up with what turned out to be a great solution. I spanned the fins in our electric dryer with one of our large cooling racks, placed a heating pad on the racks, then put the bowl of dough on top of the heating pad. I closed the dryer door and let the gods take over.
This morning, the dough was perfect and after testing the interior temp of the dryer with my thermal temp gun, the temperature was exactly as needed.
Worked out just right and we have a fantastic loaf of bread to enjoy with tonight's soup. I'm going to make more on Saturday. Can't wait.
Now I have a casserole of rice pudding baking for dessert. Yum!
