Marlene my oven has two temperatures off any very high so I can't use it to prove the bread.
Siobhan, thank you.
Chris, that's a good idea.
Ellen, I stood it on the hearth beside the fire but it was still not warm.
The bread took all day to prove as it's so cold on the boat but I eventually baked it at about 7:30 it was perfectly edible.
From now on I'll start the bread just before I go to bed, leave it to prove overnight and bake it in the morning when I get up.
I shall tweak the recipe a little until I get the flavour how I like it.
Steve doesn't like home made food he prefers fried, beige or shop bought. He wouldn't eat the parsnip soup and had a Pot Noodle instead!
We've run out of bread so his choice is to eat it or walk three miles to the nearest shop. No doubt he will eat it for a few days until our next supermarket delivery arrives.
I'm happy to walk to the shop but I can't take Beano as he's not allowed in the shop and I won't tie him up outside
