Work the ingredients with a dough hook for 5-8 minutes until you have a smooth and elastic dough.
Let the dough prove until doubled in volume in a greased bowl covered with a kitchen towel.
Stretch the dough into an 8x16 inches (20x40cm) rectangle over a sheet of baking paper.
Starting at the short side, roll the dough into an 8-inch (20cm) long log.
Transfer the dough into a greased 9x5 inches (23x 13 cm) loaf tin. Let it prove for 15 minutes or until the dough is 1 inch (2 cm) above the top of the tin.
Bake the bread at 200°C (400°F) for 10 minutes and then at 180°C (355°F) for 20 more minutes. Let it cool down on a rack before slicing.
