Test Kitchen video tips: Checking the proof
Yeast breads typically call for setting the dough aside for a little while to give the dough time to rise, or proof, until doubled in size.
Next time you're making bread, try this simple trick for keeping track of the proof: After covering the dough with plastic wrap, mark an outline of the unproofed dough with a marker. That way you can easily gauge how -- and how much -- the dough is proofing.
