Yeast breads have a reputation for being complicated, but really, anyone can make them once they've learned the basics.
The dough needs to rise until it's doubled in size, which can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. To check the dough, gently press 2 fingers about an inch into the dough. If the dough springs back immediately, it hasn't risen enough. If the indentation remains, the dough is ready.
