This has been a family favorite for YEARS in my household. I never have a problem with rising and here's a secret: I bought a heater for seedlings at a nursery. It lies very flat and is intended to mimic the warm soil of spring, to give the seedlings a head start. I use it to raise my bread and starters, because my house tends to be drafty sometimes. Works great! Another type of heater that works great is the kind meant to stick to the bottom of a terrarium, for reptiles. You can use either heater to make a little "proofing box" for your breads and starters. (My oven doesn’t have a pilot light; if it did, that would be the perfect proofing box.)
Here’s my favorite recipe for this bread:
Pepper-cheese bread: When combining ingredients for bread add about 1-2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper. Let rise 12 hours then add 2 cups grated cheese. Knead cheese in well, divide into two loaves for second rising and proceed as for plain bread.
