  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly-oiled bowl, cover and put in a warm place to allow the dough to double in size.

  6. Press the dough out into a rectangle with the short side being the same size as the long side of your loaf tin. Roll the dough up starting from the short side. Tuck the ends under.
  7. Place the dough in a lightly-greased loaf tin, cover with lightly-oiled plastic wrap and allow to rise until it just fills the tin.
  8. Bake the bread at 180°C oven for 35-40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Brush with butter and let it cool.davdavburst
