Remove from oven and place parchment paper in the bottom of the Dutch oven and dough on top of parchment paper.
Cover and bake 20 minutes at 450 degrees.
Return to oven and bake additional 20 minutes uncovered at 450 degrees.
Remove when the bread is nice and brown.

*We used the original Breakfast Power Cereal, giving the bread slight cinnamon flavor. We decided to sample the bread with raspberry jelly. We thought it would also be delicious if used for French toast. Unfortunately, we ran out of bread before the next morning.
