The dreaded plaited loaf...it gives chills to even the masters of dough, but it needn't do! We show you how to easily plait a loaf for an impressive result!
Take your bread dough and cut it into 3 equal pieces.
Roll each piece into a long fat sausage - they should all be the same length and thickness
Put one on top of the other & start to plait.
Right over middle, then over left.
Keep plaiting all the way down
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.
