  4. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes on medium speed.

  5. Shape the dough and put it into your prepared loaf tin.
  6. Cover the tin with cling film and leave it to rise in a warm place for 1 hour, until it doubles its size.

Recipe Notes

To make a good crust add a pan filled with water to the bottom of the oven while baking- it creates a steam bath in the oven which helps the bread to have a good crust and prevents tearing.
