Earlier, one of my friends on an Amazon Discussions thread mentioned that she had made her first loaf of bread and that it had taken twenty minutes to knead the dough. Here's a video from Epicurious that might help cut that time down some:
Many of you have heard me talk about the Windowpane Test to tell whether or not your bread dough has been kneaded adequately. Here's another video showing just how to do that. If you were standing on the other side of the dough she is holding that center area would be very translucent. The way this was photographed with the light shining on the dough from the camera side makes it a little hard to see.
Feel free to drop me an email!
