Quick Bread Tip

To get a perfect looking loaf of bread, roll out your dough into the shape of a rectangle after the first rise. Make sure your rectangle is not wider than your loaf pan. Then roll your dough up like a cinnamon roll. Place it in the bread pan. This will give your bread a nice even shape through the second rise and baking.

When your bread is finished baking brush your loaf with melted butter. It will keep your crust nice and soft.
