  • 5
    Let rise for 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature. It should expand to double it's size. ( i covered my bowl)
  • 6
    Divide dough in half and roll out as you would pie dough.

    Roll up as a jelly roll. Place it on a greased baking sheet. ( I sprinkled a little corn meal on the cookie sheet)
  • 8
    Make diagonal slits across the top with a sharp knife.

    Bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Try to let it cool before cutting into the loaf! Bet you can't! This bread is awesome with butter and a sprinkle of garlic powder!
