Step 9: Let is rest for 2 hours. The resting time depends on the weather you are making this. Tips: For me during winter it took about 4 hours to double the size and I left 30 mins between the folds on steps 1-8.
Step 10- Once double the size is time to make the envelope fold and shape your bread Lay it to rest for 40 mins. I already left inside the cast iron pot I will be using.
you can do any cut you want. Bake in 400 degrees- 25mins with a lid on and 25 mins with the lid off- If you dont have a cast iron pan you can add a cookie sheet on the lower rack with ice on it for the first 25 mins and than 25 mins without the ice sheet
