  • Knock the dough back, knead it again for 5 minutes, cover the dough and leave it in room temperature for 2 hours or more.
  • Take the dough, knock the air back, roll it into a rectangle and shape it into a log shape.
  • Place it on a lightly floured baking sheet, cover and leave it to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Turn the loaf over and place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Make 6 to 7 diagonal slashes on top using a sharp knife, cover and leave it to rise in a warm place, for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 230 degree Celsius.
  • Mix the salt and water together and brush it on top of the loaf.
  • Sprinkle with poppy seeds.
  • Spray the oven with water and bake the bread immediately for 20 minutes.
  • Then reduce the oven temperature to 200 degree Celsius and bake for 25 minutes or until golden on top.
