To make sure a larger loaf of bread is done baking, remove it from the cookie sheet or pan and tap the bottom with your knuckles. If it sounds hollow it is thoroughly baked. If not, slip it back into the oven directly on the oven rack. Let it bake a few more minutes or until it sounds hollow. Be sure to remove the hot loaf from the oven carefully using a clean kitchen towel or pot holders.

Twist ropes together pinch ends to fasten. Shape twist into a circle on cookie sheet pinch ends together.
