How does the bread make that line to separate into rolls? Can you show a picture of that? How do you cut it into individual rolls. Picture? I have a King Arthur Flour bun pan and it has rows to form the rolls.

Hi Sylvia,
The lines you see in the picture are formed as the dough rises over the wieners/sausages. There are some process pictures that you can view here that you may find helpful>> This recipe calls for a 13×9″ cake pan. If you use a bun pan, then you will need to divide the dough into individual buns, spread it into the bun pan slots, then add the sausages, rise and bake.
I hope you will find this information helpful.
Happy baking!
