Place the flour, salt, butter, nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Mix the butter into the flour using either your hands or the paddle attachment for the mixer.
Put the warm water in a bowl, add the yeast, 1 tsp sugar and whisk. Set it aside to froth. This may take up to 15 minutes.
Now add this to the flour mixture and mix until well incorporated.
Add water and mix the flour into a dough.
Knead the dough until it is very elastic.
Grease a glass bowl with butter. Roll the dough into a ball and place in the greased bowl. Rub the dough with the butter and turn the dough up, so the buttered face is up.
Cover the bowl with cling film and place in a warm place for the dough to rise. You can create a warm environment by warming up the oven to 100oC. When the set temperature is reached, switch it off and leave the oven light on.
Mould into desired sizes.
Heat up the oven to 180C. Place the baking tray on a top shelf.
Bake the dough for 30 minutes and then place a bowl of cold water on the bottom shelf. This will create steam in the oven to help create a lovely crust on the bread.
Turn up the heat to 200C and bake till the bread is light brown. This may take another 20 minutes.
Once the light brown colour has been achieved, take it out of the oven, cover the bread with a cloth and let it rest to cool down. Remove the cloth after 5 minutes and continue to let it cool down completely.
Once cooled serve with your favourite beverage.
