  • Baking time may vary depending on your oven.
  • To get equal and nice shape, cut away both ends of the bread after removing it out of the tin.
  • Please ensure that the tin is evenly greased. The dough will stick to any ungreased areas and it may be difficult to remove the bread after baking.
  • Please use mittens while unmoulding as the tin is hot.
