Serves: 
1 loaf
Ingredients: 
Directions: 
  1. Grind the oats into a flour using a food processor, coffee grinder, spice grinder or other such machine.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients into a bowl, or into a food processor and combine.
  3. Add the vinegar to the milk and stir. It will curdle.  Don't worry!
  4. Next add the butter and cheese to the dry mixture. If you don't have a food processor it might be easiest to rub the fat into the flour before adding the cheese.
  5. Finally add the milk, a little at a time until the mixture comes together into a dough.  The type of flour you use will depend on how much milk you require.
  6. Remove the dough from the processor if you are using one and knead it in a bowl until it comes together and is smooth.  Add more flour or milk as required.  It should be slightly sticky, not dry.
  7. Add the chopped sundried tomatoes and apple and combine them roughly into the mixture.
  8. Bring the dough into a ball on a clean, floured surface and place onto a baking tray.
  9. Flatten lightly with your hand, then using a sharp knife, cut a cross shape across the top of the dough.
  10. Place in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees, 160 degrees fan, gas mark 4 for 40 – 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean, or it sounds hollow when you tap the bottom.
  11. Cool on a wire rack or eat while still warm!
