Method

  1. Take your bread dough and cut it into 3 equal pieces. 

  2. Roll each piece into a long fat sausage - they should all be the same length and thickness

  3. Put one on top of the other & start to plait. 

    Right over middle, then over left. 

    Keep plaiting all the way down

  4. At the end, pinch each end and tuck under the middle. Put onto a baking tray and lave until it's doubled in size and then bake. 

    Enjoy!
