Add about half the remaining flour and beat until very smooth. 6. Mix in remaining flour to make a soft dough. 7. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; let rest 5 to 10 minutes. 8. Lightly grease deep bowl large enough to allow dough to double. 9. Knead dough; shape into smooth ball and put in greased bowl; turning to bring greased surface to top. 10. Cover with waxed paper or towel; let stand in warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours. 11. Punch down; pull edges to center, then turn dough completely over. 12.
