- Select Basic cycle and leave dough in the machine through the FIRST RISE.
- When it's time for the SECOND RISE, turn off the machine, pull out the dough, and roll tightly into a loaf, making sure to pinch the seams closed. Place in a greased 9x5 loaf pan seam side down and spray dough with cooking spray. Let rise in a warm place for one hour or more (rising times will vary). When dough has doubled to at least one inch above the pan’s rim, you have the option of applying an egg wash for a shiny finish. Beat an egg and use a pastry brush to apply a thin film on top of loaf.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am fascinated with all things cooking- and baking-related, especially technique. I'm a kitchen gadget junkie, spending an hour at the kitchenware store without realizing it. I also like to read food blogs which have colorful pictures and accompanying recipes. I'm addicted to Recipezaar, hehehe. I check the homepage everyday to see the "Photo of the Day" and the new photos and recipes posted. I also enjoy reading the community forums, especially "Cooking Photos" and "Breads & Baking"; the latter is how I came to adopt my new pet---my Red Sea sourdough starter. Found this funny poem on the forums, true author unknown: I didn't have potatoes, so I substituted rice. I didn't have paprika, so I used another spice. I didn't have tomato sauce, so I used tomato paste; A whole can, not a half can - I don't believe in waste. A friend gave me the recipe; she said you couldn't beat it. There must be something wrong with her, I couldn't even eat it!
