has anyone else ever lost proving bread dough down the back of the hot water tank? If so how did you get it pout and should I be worried it will do any damage?

Help!

I confess that I don’t even understand this question. What hot water tank? Mine is in the attic. I’ve never seen any hot water tank that was located anywhere close to where dough was proofing.

Ouch.surprised I know exactly how that happened. If you can’t get the dough out I think it will just dry up and in 10 years when you have to replace the water heater it can go to the dump as funny looking glue that nobody will be able to identify.
Charles in many parts of the world/country water heaters are placed in laundry rooms, basements, closets, or bathrooms. Frequently the top of a water heater seems like a natural warm spot to raise dough.

My tank is in a nice warm cupboard that is ( usually!) ideal for proving dough! Won’t be doing it again though-it’s quite a mess!

Oh dear- so sorry for your loss!  Might smell a bit boozy before it finally dries out smile
