Directions

  1. Make your dough, put in a greased bowl and flip, to coat both sides. Cover dough with a clean damp dish cloth.
  2. Fill a large glass measuring cup half way with water. Heat in microwave until water just comes to a boil and steams up the microwave.
  3. Quickly open the door and put the dough bowl in with the water. Close the door before all the steam escapes.
  4. By the way, I've never tried it with the dough right on top of the water, like Bonnie's pic. I always push the water to the back corner.
