Use machine on dough mode.
Shape dough into a ball(ish) shape.
Place on a try. In our case a pizza / bread stone. Use lots of flour on stone to stop it sticking.
Use sharp knife to cut a X in the top to allow it to expand without tearing during cooking
Brush the top of it with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the porridge oats.
NOTE : I place a tray of water in the oven / bbq, the steam helps to give a nice crispy crust.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 230C/450F/Gas
- OR Heat BBQ to high, put apple / hickory chips in smoker.
- Cook for as below.
- Bake the loaf in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through (the loaf is cooked when it is risen and golden and sounds hollow when tapped underneath).
I often make / cook our loaves this way.
