Then divide dough in loaf cakes, depending on the quantity and size of molds, and put in molds. Cover with a clean towel and leave to rise in the mold. It the dough is good, it usually takes 2-3 hours. After that put in a preheated oven and bake on average heat until light brown. Don't open the oven often; otherwise Kulich won't be light and fluffy. Check the readiness with a wooden stick - put it in the Kulich. If the stick is clean, the cake is ready and can be taken out.
