- Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until it doubles in size.
- Preheat your electric pressure cooker by selecting the baking or cake setting. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for specific preheating guidelines.
- Once the dough has risen, gently punch it down to release any air bubbles. Transfer the dough to a greased bread pan and shape it to fit the pan evenly. Place the bread pan on a trivet or in a heat-resistant dish that fits inside your pressure cooker.
