Knead at minimum speed for 5 minutes, then on speed 1 for a further 5 minutes.

You could also chech the dough by trying the window-pane test.

Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.

Stage 4 - 1 hour 30 min.

Stage 5 - 5 min.

At the end of this time, cut dough into two pieces of the same weight, and shape them into long rolls the length of your mould or tin. You can consult the leavened bread recipe to watch a video on how to do this.

Stage 6 - 3 min.

Put each lump in a rectangular mould.

Stage 7 - 1 hour
Sandwich bread : Photo of step #7
For classical sandwich bread, with slices of this form: classical sandwich bread cover both moulds with a plastic sheet and leave to rise and overflow a little.

For completely square bread, put a plate on top of each mould and weight it, to force the dough to fill the whole mould as it rises.

Leave to rise about 1 hour until moulds are well filled, or dough is well up the sides in the mould according to choice.

Preheat oven to 240°C or 464°F.

Stage 8 - 30 min.

Bake for 20 - 30 minutes (watch colouration towards end of cooking time). Note: if you opt for moulded loaves, leave plate and weight on top during baking.
Remarks
This is the bread for toast, sandwiches and canapés of course, and you will see that its very subtle taste has nothing in common with industrial breads.

If you'd like more information about making your own bread, you can look at this dedicated page.

For even tastier bread, replace white flour with an equal mix of white and whole wheat flour.

Don't worry if you don't have any leaven, here it's just to add flavour as the dough is yeast-raised.
Keeping
Several days in a towel bag.

Fried egg in bread
Fried egg in bread

This is a novel way to cook an egg in the middle of a slice of fried bread. For a continental twist to the English breakfast, it comes with a slice of grilled bacon and a little pesto. The tricky part (explained in full in the recipe) is to cook the egg white through but keep the yolk runny.
