Divide the dough in two equal pieces and shape dough into a long loaf . You will have two loaves of bread. Place shaped dough in greased loaf pan. Cover with towel/cloth.

After taking the bread out of the oven cover it with a towel/cloth to keep it soft and warm.Serve warm and enjoy Herb Battered Bread with butter or cream cheese.
