Getting the oven to 180

I enjoy cooking and baking etc, but have shied away from bread because it always says to let it rise for 2-5 hours at 180 degrees.

Well, i don’t know about you, but my oven does not allow me to set it to 180, so how the heck and i supposed to do this stupid rising business. So forget it, no bread in this house!

Flash forward to lunch with my friend deb. I had some biscuits and beer bread for lunch with her and we got to talking about baking bread.

I went into my normal rant of how the heck am i supposed to find a place to let this stupid dough “rise” for hours at 180…

She says – Oh, easy.  (WHAT? easy, well get on with it, how is this accomplished?)

Preheat the oven to 200.

Let it sit there for 10 minutes.

Shut it off.

Whala – you have 180

Well dagnabit, couldn’t all my cookbooks mention that little ditty?

Bread is on the adenda this weekend!

One thought on “Getting the oven to 180

  1. If your oven has a “warm”or “keep warm” setting that works.
    Also if you heat to 200 degrees and open the door the temp drops to 180.
    Most ovens lose 20 degrees every time you open them!!!!!
    Glad you found a way to make bread!!
