Lift the bread pan out of the machine and fit the blade. Put the ingredients in the pan, following the order specified in the manual.
Fit the pan into the machine and close the lid. Set to a 750 g (1½ lb) loaf size on the basic white programme. Select your preferred crust setting.
Just before baking begins brush the top of the dough lightly with milk and sprinkle with extra oatmeal. Close the lid gently.
At the end of the programme lift the pan out of the machine and shake the bread out on to a wire rack to cool.
