  1. Pour the chilled buttermilk into the blender jug with 150 ml cold water. Crumble the yeast in and, with the measuring beaker in place, heat for 3 minutes/37 °C/speed setting 1. Allow the mixture to rest for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and, with the measuring beaker in place, knead into a smooth dough with the knead button.
  3. Decant the dough into a bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and allow to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and fold several times from the outside into the middle until the dough feels elastic. Form the dough into a loaf and put in a greased and floured clay pot. If desired, score with a sharp knife and dust with a little flour. Allow to rise again for 20 minutes whilst covered in the clay pot.
  5. Put the closed clay pot in the cold fan oven and then bake for 1 hour at 240 °C.
