arrow Directions:

    Divide the dough into quarters and shape each quarter into a round or log shaped loaf. Place the dough in the bread pans and place it in the oven. Allow the dough to rise for an hour or until it has tripled in size. Leaving the bread in the oven, turn the oven on to 350 degrees and bake the bread for approximately 30 minutes.

    Servings: 24 servings (4 loaves)
