After the dough has risen, then add 1/3 cup of oil and stir in 4 more cups of flour. Then dump it out onto a good breadboard and start kneading the dough. It will be quite sticky, so sprinkle more flour on top and under the dough and keep kneading. Keep adding flour until the dough quits sticking to your hands, and you will soon find that the dough gets a certain 'feel' that is well, doughy, but not sticky. I generally knead the dough for about 10 minutes or more, until it feels just right. You could use a bread mixer with a dough-hook, too if you don't want to put up with the goo.
Shape each part into ovals, and put them into the 3 breadpans. Mush them down and flatten them out. Cover with a towel and let rise, once more, until they are doubled in bulk. If you wish you can put a slice or two on the top of the loaves to allow some of the moisture to escape, but it works fine without that.
