    Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.

  4. Step 4:

    SHAPE Roll to a 45cm long log. Slice in half lengthways but leave one end attached, and from that end twist the two lengths of dough together. Lift onto a floured baking sheet and pinch the two ends together to make a wreath.

  5. Step 5:


    Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).

    Lift the tray onto the middle oven shelf and bake for 25-35 minutes, until when you tap the base of the wreath it sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack.
