[Virtual Challah Lesson] First rise

When finished kneading, form into a smooth ball

Take the ball, place it in the well-greased bowl, twist it all around to cover it in grease from the bowl, and invert, such that the top is also greased. The grease is necessary to allow the dough to rise, unhindered by the friction between the dough and the bowl.

(Can use the plastic wrap (so conveniently floured) from the mixer-covering step. )

Cover loosely and set aside someplace warm to rise.
