  1. Rub some oil around the inside of a 1kg/2lb bread tin.
  2. Put the rye flour, white flour, oats and yeast into a large bowl and blend them together.
  3. Add the milk and honey, and stir until everything looks craggy and lumpy then stir in the salt.
  4. Stir in the oil.
  5. Using your hands, gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  6. Knead the dough in the bowl for 50 presses.
  7. Cover the dough bowl with an upturned bowl and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size, which will take 1-2 hours.
  8. Knead the dough for another 50 presses.
