Alternative to the windowpane test
Just came across this suggestion for checking on whether your coarse wholegrain dough is properly kneaded, in cases when the traditional windowpane test won't work.
"Use your thumb and forefinger to pull up a piece of the dough about an inch above the dough surface. If the dough holds the pinch and stands in a little ridge without springing back, it is fully kneaded."
I don't believe I've heard this one before. Anybody else using this technique?
(BTW, that's from "Amy's Bread" by Amy and Toy Kim Dupree.)
