Grease the crap out of a bread tin, don’t be shy with the grease, we don’t want the bread tin to trap our fresh bread!

Get your dough and beat it, using your fist, punch it (you are trying to remove the gases)

Shape the beaten dough into a 20-22cm log

Place on prepared pan, cover with lightly greased plastic wrap, set aside in a warm place for another 30 minutes or until it doubles in size

Brush with milk, sprinkle the rest of the linseed and oats
