  13. Roll the dough into double the length of the pan, then cut it into half.. do the same for all the dough...
  14. In a light grease pan, randomly arrange the dough into the pan and let it rise until 90% full. Cover it then let it sit for 1hour before baking in 180c fan force oven for 30-35mins..
