  • Add the soft butter in small pieces and let the machine work for another 10 minutes.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic and let it rest for 1h 30min.
  • Place the dough on a flour-covered table and knead it a few times, fold it over, roll it out to the length of your loaf pan and place it inside. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 1h.
  • Set the oven to heat at 190°c with an oven-proof bowl with water placed at the bottom.
