|Basic white bread loaf||1|
With a sharp knife or scissors, cut dough lengthwise into 3 strips.
Pull and stretch each strip to 24 in. (60 cm).
Pinch the 3 long strips together at one end and braid the strips loosely.
Curve the braided dough around the edge of a 10 in. (25 cm) pie plate that has been lightly sprayed with vegetable spray.
Cover and allow to rise at least until double in size.
Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
