175g rolled oats, plus extra to sprinkle

175g strong brown or white bread flour

7g sachet easy-blend dried yeast

1tsp celery salt

75g mature Cheddar cheese, finely grated

1tbsp grainy mustard, plus 1 tsp to brush


Put 100g of the oats in a food processor and blend until finely ground. Tip into a bowl and add the remaining oats and flour. Stir in the yeast, celery salt and cheese.

Mix the mustard with 270 millilitres of hand hot water and add to the bowl. Using a round bladed knife, mix to a soft dough, adding a little more water if the dough feels dry. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1½ hours.

Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Grease a 900g loaf tin. Punch the dough to deflate and turn out onto the work surface. Shape into an oblong and drop into the tin. Cover with greased clingfilm and leave in a warm place for about 1 hour until the dough fills the tin.

Mix the teaspoon of mustard with 1 teaspoon of water and brush gently over the dough. Scatter with extra oats and bake for 35-40 minutes or until pale golden. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
