7. Roll out one dough into about 1 cm thick, then roll up. Cover and rest for 15 minutes.

8. Roll out the dough again into about 1 cm thick. The width of the dough should correspond to width of the pullman tin. Roll up and place in a greased pullman tin.

9. Cover with a wet cloth and let the dough proof for about 90 to 100 miunutes, or till the dough raises almost reaching the rim of the tin. Slide the greased lid over,  and start to preheat the oven to 210 degree Celsius for about 10 minutes.

If your Pullman tin has a thinner wall, the baking time can be shortened to 40 minutes.

Remove the bread immediately from the mould after leaving the oven.
