The pastry is most malleable when still warm – so, along with wrapping in cling film to stop it drying out, I also over-wrap in a tea towel to keep the heat in.
The perfect finish
If the sides of the loaf are a little pale after cooking, cooling and removing from the tin, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6, brush the sides with some egg yolk and bake for another 15-30 mins before cooling again.
