Grease a 5x8-inch loaf pan.
Cut the dough crosswise into six 3 1/2" x 12" strips.
Stack the strips on top of one another.
Cut the stack into six pieces, about 2" x 3 1/2" each.
Turn the pieces on edge, and place them in the loaf pan one in front of the other from one end of the pan to the other, squeezing them in tight.
Cover the pan and allow the loaf to rise for 30 to 60 minutes until it's almost doubled in size. While the loaf is rising, preheat the oven to 350°F.
Bake the loaf for 45 to 55 minutes in the center of the oven, tenting it with foil after 30 minutes. Remove the loaf from the oven, and transfer it to a rack to cool for 15 to 20 minutes before turning it out of the pan to cool completely.
As the bread is cooling, make the cream cheese frosting.
