  • Spray oil
  • 200 g strong white bread flour plus extra for dusting
  • 125 g strong wholemeal bread flour
  • 50 g rolled oats plus 3 tsp for sprinkling
  • 1 1/2 tsp fast-action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 225 ml warm water
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 lightly beaten egg


  • Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan, 350F). If you choose to make this by machine, then set hte food mixer with a dough hook.
  • Spritz the inside of the loaf tin with oil.
  • Put the flours, 50g (1.8 oz) of oats, yeast and salt into a large bowl (or the food mixer). Mix.
  • Make a well in the centre and pour in the water and honey.
  • Mix everything together well to give a soft dough ball.
  • If doing by machine, continue to knead for 4 minutes. Otherwise, put the dough onto a clean work surface sprinkled with a little flour and knead for about 8 minutes.
  • Shape the dough into a rugby ball shape with a nice smooth and taut top and place in the loaf tin.
  • Spray the top of the loaf with a little oil and then cover it with cling film so that it is air tight, but loose enough to allow room for the loaf to grow.
  • Leave the dough in a warm place for about 45 minutes or until the loaf has doubled in size.
  • Once the bread has risen, remove the cling film, brush with the egg and sprinkle over the extra oats. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until golden brown on top and sounding hollow when tapped underneath.
  • Loosen the loaf from the tin and leave it too cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
