Every time I make bread and it says in the recipe " let the dough rise until it have doubled in size" I'm struggling to figure out when that have happened.

Cling film and a felt-tip-pen. I simply draw a line on the cling film, so I can see when it have doubled in size. I have tilted my bowl a bit so you can see the line. Hope you can use this tip
