about 1 1/2 hours. Punch the dough down and roll into an oval loaf
about 8 inches by 3 inches. Place the loaf in the center of the
prepared baking sheet. Cover and let rise until double in size, about
45 minutes. Bake the bread for about 40 minutes, or until golden.
Remove the bread from the oven and transfer to a wire baking sheet
and let cool. Slice the bread and serve with butter.
