I have not yet made this bread, but it looks like something I have made in the past. I'll try it soon! To answer the question about shaping into a loaf, almost any bread dough can be shaped any way you want. You just need to keep the amount of dough related to the pan size. For a 9" x 5" x 3" pan, roll out the dough into a 9" x 15" rectangle, and beginning at the 9" side, roll up tightly. Seal all edges. Place in greased bread pan, and bake about 35 to 40 minutes. If using smaller bread pans, adjust the size of the rectangle as well as the baking time. Remember, you want the dough to fill about 1/2 of the pan before baking. Test for doneness by tapping the the loaf for a hollow sound. Also, try using coffee cans, bake-proof glass bowls, make into braids, etc. Have fun experimenting!
