The bread seemed to be little heavy when I ate the next day after baking. But two days later it appeared to be very good loaf: fresh and hearty.

For Oatmeal:

72 g organic steel cut (Irish style) oats

418 g water

Inn a medium-size pot, bring the water to boil and add the steel cut oats. Cover the pot with the lid and simmer the oats for 30 minutes. Let cool and refrigerate until you’re ready to use it.
