STEP 1: Weigh one loaf’s worth of freshly-made whole grain bread dough. My loaves weigh 1 pound 8 ounces each before baking.

STEP 2: Divide the dough ball into 2 and roll each into a snake shape.

STEP:5 Place the bread dough in a prepared loaf pan. I use oil and lecithin mixture and a stainless steel 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.

STEP 6: Let loaves rise in a warm place and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

I like to rub the hot crusts with butter. ENJOY!
