8.) Fold dough over onto itself and place it into a greased cake pan measures 9×13.

9.) Use a pizza cutter and cut the dough into squares and spread it out evenly into the pan.

10.) Place pan into a warm oven of right at 110 degrees and allow the dough to rise again, but this time, about halfway up the pan sides.

11.) Once it rises, bake the dough to a golden brown at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

12.) Allow to cool and serve for breakfast or use in ‘Ohana Bread Pudding.
