Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours. Punch dough down. Cover and let rise again for 30 minutes. Divide dough into 2 parts and shape into loaves. Place in two 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pans. cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled about 30-45 minutes.
