  • Step 3/3

    Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F. When dough has finished rising, knead by hand on a floured surface until smooth. Divide dough and form loafs approx. the width of a stretched out hand in diameter. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for approx. 30 min. When the dough has doubled in volume, make a crosswise incision in the top. Transfer to preheated oven. Place a baking dish filled with water on the bottom rack. Bake the bread for approx. 30 - 40 min. until the crust is golden. Set aside to cool.
