Roll out the dough into long, 2 cm thick rectangles. Sprinkle the coarse granulated sugar on the worktop, place the dough sheets on it, press it and then place it in an ovenproof dish covered with parchment paper. Leave to rise for 1 hour at room temperature, covered and draft-free. Then put the baking dish in a preheated oven at 185°C for 20 minutes. The bread is ready when it is nicely caramel colored.
