  • 25g oats + 1 tbsp
  • 7g sachet dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt

How to make it

  1. Mix the flours, oatmeal, 25g oats, salt and yeast in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix 300ml warm water with the honey and oil and stir into the flour to form a dough.
  3. Knead on a floured surface for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for 30 minutes - 1 hour until doubled in size.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200C, gas mark 6. Grease a 1kg loaf tin.
  5. Knock the dough back and mould into a rough loaf shape to drop into the prepared tin. Cover and leave for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  6. Sprinkle with the remaining oats and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden. Remove from the tin and cool.
  7. Serve with jam, marmalade or lemon curd.

Simply roll into a large round shape and place straight on a greased baking tray and bake instead of using a loaf tin.

For a savoury start to the day, try serving with smoked mackerel pate.

The loaf will keep for 1-2 days in an airtight container.
