Then after that geets close to top of your pot turn it out on floured surface and work it for about 5/8 minutes.
Then use crisco to grease your bread pans and divide your dough up and put them in your bread pans ,mine made 5.. let it rise maybe another 2 hours.When it gets a good height to it just so it comes over the bread pan about half inch.pop into 375 oven for 45 to 50 minutes.ENJOY
