  8. Hi there!
    I'm in the process of baking this bread but I have a question... Do I drain the rolled oats or do I add the milk to the mixture too?
    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Cristina,

      You are to add the rolled oats and milk into the mixture. Thanks for bringing this up and I really appreciate it, as it enabled me to clear up vague instructions. I have already amended the instruction in the blog. Thanks again.
