  • Starting in the middle, loosely braid the ropes by bringing the left rope underneath the center rope; lay it down. Bring right rope under new center rope; lay it down. Repeat braiding to end.

  • On the other half, braid by bringing the outside ropes alternately over the center rope. Press ends together to seal; tuck under.

  • Cover braid and let rise in a warm place until nearly double (about 30 minutes).

  • Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Makes 1 loaf (12 slices).
