1. Mix the flour, yeast and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add the water and mix until an easy-to-knead dough is formed. Knead the dough for a good 15 to 20 minutes until elastic. Place back into the large mixing bowl, and spread a little sunflower oil over the top.
3. Now place the entire bowl in a big black bag, cover with a towel, and leave somewhere warm to rise (about 1½ hours). It needs to double in size.
4. Grease a 30cm x 12cm bread pan. Remove the dough from the bowl and shape it into the pan. Cover the pan with a dishtowel and place it in a low-heat oven. Let it rise for a further 1½ hours (it must double in size again).
5. Take it out the oven, heat the oven to 170°C, and bake the bread on the middle rack for about an hour. To check whether it's done, tap the top of the bread. If it makes a hollow sound, it's ready. Spread a little butter on the crust and carefully remove from the tin.
