Preheat the oven to 220°C, or 200°C for fan assisted. Knock back the dough to remove as much air as possible. Knead gently once or twice and form into a tight ball. Place on a dusted surface and cover for final prove until the dough has a light spring to it when pressed with a finger (this can vary from 15mins to 2 hours). Place on a baking tray and carefully slash 2/3 shallow cuts across the top and sprinkle with a little flour. Place in oven and when it begins to darken in colour (after about 25mins), reduces heat to 180°C. Leave for a further 20mins and then test for hollow sound when base of loaf is tapped. Allow to cool for an hour before slicing. Tips: If using a bread maker, set it to the fastest programme. Don't overwork the dough. To create a wonderful crust, place a small pan of water in the oven for the first 15 mins.
