For the Bread

  • Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  • Add the butter and water.
  • Form into a dough (add more flour or water as is necessary to form dough).
  • Knead for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Place in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 1 hour or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Preheat oven to 355ºF (180ºC).
  • Punch down the dough, roll out onto a floured surface and shape into a long loaf shape, place on a tray lined with parchment paper.

For the Topping

  • Whisk together all ingredients and set aside.
  • Once loaf has proofed, gently spread the topping on the dough. (Be very careful not to push too hard and deflate your loaf).
  • Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown, and the loaf sounds hollow when the bottom is knocked on.
  • Allow loaf to cool on a cooling rack.
