500 ml cake flour
500 ml white flour
5 ml salt

Pour yeast mixture into the centre, mix and then knead very well until smooth and pliable, adding a little extra warm water if necessary. Return to bowl, brush top with oil, then cover with a cloth and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour 30 minutes to 2 hours, until doubled.

Punch down, knead briefly, and divide into 2 pieces. Flatten between the palms of the hands into rounds, then using a rolling pin roll lightly into ovals and place on a baking sheet dusted with flour. With your thumb make a deep dent in the centre of each then leave to rise for about 25 minutes, preferably in the warming drawer below the preheated oven. Just before baking, brush with milk and, using a sieve, sift a little flour evenly over the tops. Bake in centre of oven at 220 °C for 10 minutes.
