  5. On a lightly floured board, knead bread till smooth.
  6. Place in a greased bowl then turn 180 degrees to where the greased side is up, cover and let stand in a warm place.
  7. When bread dough has risen and doubled in size (50-60 minutes), punch down and divide in half.
  8. Form each half into a loaf and place each into greased bread pans. Let dough rise till doubled in size.
