Put your oven on low...and set the bowl on top of the oven.

My kitchen has sliding doors so I can close it off..I do that, shut the AC vents and then turn on the oven let it get hot and then open the door and heat up the kitchen,, it doesn't have to get to 85, if left in a warm place, and it rises slow you will have a wonderful tasting bread. Even if it takes longer than the recipe says, it will be fine. Just shut the door to the warm rood and let the bread do it's thing.Oh I do turn off the oven after the room warms a bit.

If your kitchen temp is in the 70s, it will just take a little longer to rise.

I don't know the configuration of your house, but in my house we have a "broom closet" where the hot water tank/heater is located...among other stuff. It is a small room with a shelf, and is a perfect place for letting dough rise.....

Enjoy!!!

You can let it rise just about anywhere, the cooler it is the longer it takes to rise. Breadmaking/baking is very forgiving of conditions. I have been doing it for more years than I care to count.

I would think that inside an unlit oven should be warmer that the kitchen temp, too. Maybe.... Didn't I read somewhere where someone sets a bowl of warm water in an oven to add humidity for rising dough, or is that only in winter?

The dish washer - Start a quick rinse, when the water starets to spray, stop the dishwasher, leave the water in it. It will be hot water. Put your dough on the rack and close the door. Hot damp environment, with no drafts. The yeast loves it. I promise.

Interesting........do I put the dough directly on the rack with no bowl?
