Car tyres: everything you need to know

Do your tyres need renewing? Make sure you’re clued up with our comprehensive guide

As the only component on your car that actually makes contact with the road surface, tyres are critical for safety when driving. In this comprehensive guide, we outline everything you need to know about car tyres, from reading and setting pressures to working out what size tyres you need. Following the advice laid out here will save you money, minimise hassle and — most importantly — keep yourself and others safe out on the road.

What are tyre speed ratings?

A tyre speed rating is the maximum speed a particular tyre is legally approved for. The rating is represented by a letter displayed on the tyre sidewall. It will always be the last letter in the sequence. If the sidewall reads 205/55 R16 W 91, for instance, the speed rating is W. Each letter has a corresponding maximum speed, so in the case of a tyre with a W speed rating, that tyre is approved for speeds up to 168mph.

For safety reasons, it’s important your car’s top speed does not exceed the tyre’s speed rating. A full list is shown below.

What is the UK legal tyre limit?

The minimum tread depth required by law in the UK is 1.6mm. This applies to the central three-quarters of the tyre’s width and its entire circumference. Many car manufacturers, however, advise changing your tyres once the tread is down to 3mm to be on the safe side.

The fine for driving a car on the road with a tyre that has less than 1.6mm of tread is £2500 and three penalty points on your licence. Therefore, if all four tyres are below that legal limit, you will face a £10,000 fine and 12 penalty points — which means a six-month driving ban.

What should my tyre pressures be?

You will find the correct tyre pressures for your car on a sticker attached to the door frame, inside the fuel filler flap or in the handbook. Be aware that the car manufacturer might recommend different tyre pressures for the front compared to the rear. You will also see different recommended pressures for different load levels — such as only two occupants in one case, and a full family with luggage in the other — so make sure you choose the correct pressures for the load you’re carrying.

It’s very important that your tyre pressures are set correctly. If the pressures are too low, the car will feel unstable and perhaps be unsafe to drive, the tyres will wear very quickly and fuel economy will suffer. If they are set too high, the tyres will not generate as much grip as they should and they’ll wear heavily across the central band of the tread.

How do you read the markings on a tyre?

The markings on a tyre indicate its size, load index and speed rating. A typical tyre marking looks like this — 205/55 R16 W 91.

The first three digits — 205 — refer to the tyre’s width in millimetres.

The second two digits — 55 — refer to the tyre’s aspect ratio, which is the height of the sidewall expressed as a percentage of the tyre’s width. Therefore, an aspect ratio of 55 means the sidewall is 55% as tall as the tyre is wide.

R stands for radial, which indicates the tyre is constructed with its cord plies positioned at 90deg to the direction of travel, which adds strength. Almost all new tyres are radial.

The two-digit number that follows, in this case 16, indicates the diameter in inches of the wheel that particular tyre can be fitted to.

The last letter is the speed rating, which is the maximum speed the tyre is legally approved for. A speed rating of W indicates a maximum speed of 168mph. Scroll up for a full list of speed ratings.

Finally, the last two-digit number is the load rating. In this case, a load rating of 91 means that one tyre is legally approved to carry a load of 615kg.

How to check tyre tread depth

An easy way of checking that your tyres have enough tread depth (the legal minimum in the UK is 1.6mm) is to take a 20 pence piece and slot it into the tread at the point where the tread is at its shallowest.

If you can’t see the outer rim of the coin, your tyres have plenty of tread left and are safe. If you can see the rim, your tyres may be approaching the 1.6mm limit, or they’re already below that. In either case, it’s time for new tyres.

How often should I replace my tyre valve?

The valve is a part of the wheel rather than the tyre. Made from rubber, it can perish over time and may leak air at a significant rate, or at least make checking your tyre pressures difficult. Ideally, you should change the valve every time you replace your tyres.

The cost of replacing tyre valves is minimal. In fact, you will often find this cost is included in the price of a new tyre.

Tyre pressure conversion chart

Tyre pressures can be expressed in two ways — bar and psi. You will often see both quoted together for the sake of clarity. If not, converting one to the other is very straightforward.

To convert bar to psi, multiply the bar number by 14.5. To convert psi to bar, multiply the psi number by 0.06895.

Alternatively, use the conversion chart below.

How do I check my tyre pressures?

First of all, you should check your car’s handbook, the sticker that you’ll find on the door frame or inside the fuel filler flap, or simply search online, to find the correct tyre pressures for your car and its load level. You should then remove the dust cap from tyre valve and, using a tyre pressure gauge, read the current pressure. You should add air using an electric compressor if the pressure is too low and remove air if too high. If you do not have a tyre pressure gauge or a compressor, most petrol stations will have an air line.

Remember, tyre pressures will increase with heat and reduce in the cold. That means you should check and adjust your tyre pressures in representative ambient temperatures (don’t set them in a warm garage if it is cold outside, for instance) and when the tyres themselves are cool rather than hot.

What is a tyre pressure monitoring system?

Most modern cars will have an in-built tyre pressure monitoring system, which constantly monitors your tyre pressures and warns you if they are too low. When your pressures fall beneath the manufacturer’s recommended level, the TPMS will illuminate a warning light within the instrument binnacle. You’ll know your car has a TPMS if you see this warning light appear briefly when you turn on your car’s ignition (it will quickly switch off again as long are your tyre pressures are correct). TPMS is a legal requirement on cars built after 2020.

There are two types of TPMS. The first is indirect type, which uses the ABS to approximate tyre pressures. The second and more advanced is direct type, which actually uses a tiny pressure gauge to gather exact data.

On higher-end cars, the TPMS will be able to display your exact tyre pressures in real time on the dashboard. TPMS is good for safety, but only if it is working properly. Therefore, it’s advisable to manually check your pressures from time to time.

What size tyres for my car?

The easiest way to work out what size tyres you need for your car is to check the tyres that are already on it. You will see the tyre size marked on the sidewall. Be aware that the front and rear tyres may well be a different size.

You can also use websites such as blackcircles.com to search for the correct tyre size by inputting your car’s registration number. Depending on your car you may be offered a range of tyre sizes, in which case you should refer to the sidewalls of the tyres currently fitted to it.

How long do car tyres typically last?

There are too many variables to give a definitive answer to that question. High-performance tyres will have a much shorter life than fuel-saving low rolling resistance tyres, while your driving style, the type of car you drive and the sort of driving you mostly do will also be very significant factors in determining tyre life.

As a general rule of thumb, a tyre of reasonable quality fitted to the front axle of a front-wheel-drive car should last for around 20,000 miles.

What’s the penalty for bald tyres?

The fine for driving a car on the road with a tyre that has less than 1.6mm of tread is £2500 and three penalty points on your licence. Therefore, if all four tyres are below that legal limit, you will face a £10,000 fine and 12 penalty points — which means a six-month driving ban.

That’s probably the best-case scenario, however. Since bald tyres are extremely dangerous, particularly in the wet, the biggest risk you face when driving on very worn rubber is having a serious accident.

What is the law on having a spare tyre?

There is no law in the UK that states drivers should carry a spare tyre. However, given that carrying a spare wheel and tyre could be the difference between a mere 15-minute interruption to your journey as you replace a flat and being stranded for hours by the side of the road should you pick up a puncture, we would highly recommend having one.

Spare tyres will very often be space-saver type, which are the same diameter as a regular wheel and tyre, but much narrower. With a space-saver fitted, your top speed will be reduced to 50mph. They’re really only intended to get your home or to the nearest garage.

However, many cars will only be supplied these days with a repair kit. This is a type of expanding foam that you squeeze into the punctured tyre through the valve before reinflating that tyre using an electric compressor. The foam plugs the puncture and allows you to continue, albeit at restricted speeds and for a limited number of miles.

How often should I replace my tyres?

Legally, you are required to replace your tyres as soon as the tread depth is down to 1.6mm. However, to stay on the side of caution it’s advisable to swap them at 3mm. Rubber can perish over time, so even if a tyre has plenty of tread left it might not be safe to use once it’s more than five years old.

It’s impossible to say how long a tyre should last because there are so many variables — the type of car they’re fitted to, the type of driving you mostly do and your driving style are just three factors. What’s more, a high-performance tyre will have a much shorter life than a low rolling resistance tyre.

How can I make my tyres last longer?

The key to prolonging tyre life is keeping the pressures at the level recommended by the car manufacturer. Too little pressure will cause tyres to wear out very quickly, while too much pressure will cause excessive wear to the central band of the tread. You should also have your wheel alignment checked regularly by a garage as tyres will wear very quickly if the alignment is out by even a small amount.

Driving carefully in corners and avoiding wheelspin will also help to reduce tyre wear. If you drive a front-wheel-drive car, you can switch the tyres from the front axle to the rear, and vice versa, once the tyres on the front are into the final third of their useful life.

Meet the DJ behind Cardi B’s chart-topping coronavirus hit

Breaking News Emails

While concerts have been canceled in an attempt to stifle the spread of coronavirus, listeners are still finding comfort through music and in particular, the «Coronavirus Remix» — a chart-topping song inspired by a Cardi B video that many are calling an «anthem» for this anxiety-inducing time.

Never one to shy away from speaking about politics and current events, Cardi B posted a video to Instagram last Wednesday in which she discussed her fear of coronavirus and warned her 60 million followers to take the global pandemic seriously.

“Coronavirus! Coronavirus!» the «Bodak Yellow» singer said at the end of the video. «I’m telling you, s— is real! S— is gettin’ real!”

These final lines became the fodder for DJ iMarkkeyz’s remix.

A Brooklyn-based DJ and producer, DJ iMarkkeyz, whose real name is Brandon Markell Davidson, has been building a following with his music ever since his first viral video in 2020, a remix of Carl Garrett’s seven-second Vine video «You Deserve Rounds.» After Cardi B posted the video, DJ iMarkkeyz said he immediately began receiving requests to remix it. Luckily for him, he already has a beat in mind.

«I had a beat already, so when people began tagging me, I started creating the song,» the 29-year-old told NBC News.

He said once the song was complete, he paired «Coronavirus Remix» with a video montage of dancers, including Elmo and Beyoncé, then posted it to social media. On Twitter, the track quickly gained traction and once DJ iMarkkeyz shared it with streaming platforms, it began climbing the charts. The song has earned the No. 1 spot on iTunes in Bulgaria, Egypt and Brazil and is currently No. 8 in the United States.

@iamcardib lettin’ y’all know sh!t real out here ��. Y’all know I had to get ignant w/ a Beat ���� •

«It started spreading little by little, then next thing I know, people are playing it at clubs in Brazil,» DJ iMarkkeyz said. «Everybody seems to love it.»

Even Cardi B appears to appreciate the track. Both she and DJ iMarkkeyz have said that they plan to donate proceeds from the song to support shelters and food banks that may be overtaxed because of coronavirus.

«Keep in mind you don’t get your money right away. but even months from now there would be families with financial issues for getting laid off due to the virus,» Cardi B tweeted Tuesday. «We will Donate!’

YES !THATS WHAT WE GOING TO DO ! Keep in mind you don’t get your money right away . but even months from now there would be families with financial issues for getting laid off due to the virus .We will Donate ! https://t.co/ehAo8TCUhN

As for why the song has resonated with so many people, DJ iMarkkeyz believes it’s because the singer is able to find «a real way to relate to people» and articulate their distress during «rough times.»

«Everybody loves Cardi B,» DJ iMarkkeyz said. «And to get positive responses from people during this rough time, when we’re all scared, and to make them happy is not only heart-warming, but it’s a blessing.»


Cardi B continues to speak candidly about her worry about the global pandemic. More than 97,000 people watched her live on Instagram at 2 a.m. Wednesday morning — an indication that people will look to the singer for guidance and relief as they navigate this difficult cultural moment.

«Coronavirus. I just don’t understand,» the singer said in an Instagram video Wednesday. «Who the f— saw this coming?»

Stuck at home? Eight easy recipes to keep your children entertained

With the prospect of weekends spent indoors, have these fun recipe ideas up your sleeve to entertain the kids

I am a chef and the kitchen is the axis of our home. I am happiest in an apron, with the radio on, something to cook and people to feed. Bring my children into the mix and this is where the fun really starts. Grace, Ivy and Dorothy all have their own aprons, slung on the kitchen door next to an assortment of mine.

Each has very different capabilities in the kitchen. Grace, the eldest, likes to be left to her own devices. We have a thin, narrow, terrace house: from two floors up I can hear her industrious clatter as she busies herself with pots and pans downstairs in the kitchen. There is always mess, but what she makes, and the way she will call us into the kitchen when she has finished, makes my heart swell.

Ivy is keen on any kitchen tasks ­involving gadgets. The pasta machine is her favourite bit of kit. We have a ­tradition that if it’s your birthday you get to choose what you get to eat on the day. Ravioli made (with a little help) by an eight-year-old is impressive. And she knew it.

Dot is the youngest and is predictably fond of using cutters to punch out biscuits shaped like pigs, stars, bells, or the alphabet.

I want my three girls to grow up with a fearless appreciation of food. When they leave home, I want them all to be able to cook with flair, creativity – and with an eye for budget. Food and cooking are powerful tools for learning, encouraging a sense of “where in the world would we like to eat today”. I want the contents of our kitchen to spark this worldly curiosity. For me, it’s up there with learning your times tables and tying your own shoelaces.

With the potential for school closures and at least a few weekends to be spent largely indoors thanks to the ongoing spread of coronavirus, I have written these recipes for children to cook, with the help of a grown-up if needs be. Some are easy, while others are perfect for letting any more capable children loose in the kitchen with a bit of culinary autonomy.

Lahmacun (aka Turkish pizza)

Not only do they bring welcome respite from the insatiable demand for pizza, these punchy lamb flatbreads are a cinch to make. Cook as many as will fit in your oven at one time; they will be popular.



For the dough

  • 500g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried yeast
  • 300ml water
  • Olive oil for oiling your hands and surface for initial knead

For the topping

  • 1 small onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 small fresh tomato, diced
  • ½ red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • ½-1 tsp chilli flakes, or to taste
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 200g lamb mince

To serve

  • 2-3 large ripe tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 bunch parsley, leaves picked and roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. To make the dough, put the flour, salt and yeast in a big mixing bowl and mix in the water with a spoon.
  2. Mix well to form a cohesive dough, place a damp cloth over the bowl and leave for an hour or so somewhere warm until almost doubled in size.
  3. In a blender, pulse all the topping ingredients (apart from the mince) together to form a coarse paste. Put in a bowl, add the mince and mix well.
  4. When the dough is ready, preheat the oven to maximum. Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead it gently with lightly oiled hands for a minute. Cut the dough into eight pieces.
  5. Put a pizza stone or baking tray into the oven to get hot.
  6. On a well-floured surface roll each dough ball into a long, thin oval shape, getting the dough as thin as possible without tearing.
  7. Carefully remove the pizza stone or baking tray from the oven and place on a heatproof surface.
  8. Lay the dough on the tray and spread an eighth of the topping all over it, leaving a 2cm border.
  9. Bake in the hot oven for six to eight minutes, until the dough is crisp and the topping is cooked, repeat with any remaining dough.
  10. Serve immediately, adding some sliced tomatoes, plenty of parsley and a good squeeze of lemon juice to each lahmacun.

Baked rice with chickpeas, chorizo, rosemary and orange

This thrifty supper will have everyone digging in. It’s an easy one-pot recipe that older children might like to tackle on their own. If you want to make this vegetarian, swap chorizo for some mushrooms fried with the peppers.



  • 250g soft cooking chorizo, diced (use diced bacon if you prefer; leftover roast chicken or pork, shredded, would also work)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced small
  • 1 pepper (any colour), finely diced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, skin on and left whole
  • 3 x 400g tins whole plum tomatoes, drained of juice – or use fresh, roughly chopped
  • ½-1 tsp smoked paprika (to taste, hot or sweet variety)
  • 300g Spanish short paella grain (alternatively, risotto rice will do)
  • 600ml boiling water or hot chicken stock
  • 1 small bunch rosemary (about 4 small sprigs), leaves removed and finely chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 small orange, thinly sliced
  • Chilli flakes, to serve (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/Gas 4.
  2. Fry the chorizo pieces in the olive oil for about three to five minutes in a large casserole pan until crisp and beginning to exude fat.
  3. Add the onion, pepper and garlic and cook for about 10 minutes until soft.
  4. Add the tomato, paprika and rice. Mix together until everything is well-coated and the rice is warmed through. This takes about two minutes.
  5. Add the hot stock or boiling water, bay leaves and rosemary and give the rice a good stir, checking the seasoning. Add a bit more salt or paprika if necessary.
  6. Add the drained chickpeas and the orange slices to the surface of the rice and cover the pan with a tight fitting lid.
  7. Bake in the hot oven for about 20 minutes until the rice has taken on all the liquid and the grains are cooked through.
  8. Rest for five minutes off the heat and with the lid on before serving, encouraging people to add chilli flakes if they like.


My eldest daughter, Grace, is chief granola maker in our house. She will often switch around spices, fruit and nuts to get different combinations. We’ve had Christmas granola (mixed peel and stem ginger), and granola studded with chopped up chocolate buttons (though this is an occasional treat). Cooking the granola very slowly at a low temperature makes the mix crisp up and turn golden without requiring too much oil or processed sugar. Leave the cooked granola to cool completely on the tray before packaging it; this will also help to form the fabled clusters. We like to eat ours with plain yogurt and fresh fruit.



  • 4 tbsp vegetable or coconut oil
  • 250g rolled oats
  • 50g whole nuts, roughly chopped
  • 50g sunflower seeds
  • 30g sesame seeds, poppy seeds or desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 50ml runny honey
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 100g dried fruit; raisins, sultanas, cherries, or larger dried fruit such as peach, apricot, apple, mango or dates, chopped (use one or a combination, as you like)


  1. Preheat the oven to 140C/120C fan/Gas 1 and grease a large baking sheet with a tablespoon of oil.
  2. Put the oats, nuts, seeds, spices and a pinch of salt in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Put the honey, sugar and the rest of the oil in a small saucepan over a medium heat and cook, stirring, for two minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Pour the hot syrup over the oat mixture and mix well until all the ingredients are evenly coated. Use your hands to do this if you like.
  5. Transfer the mix to the baking sheet and spread it out evenly.
  6. Bake the granola in the oven without stirring for about 25-30 minutes or until the mix is an even golden brown and crisp throughout.
  7. Remove the granola from the oven and top with the dried fruit.
  8. Set aside to cool completely. Store in an airtight jar or container.

Pretzel sticks

Baking bread is a great activity for children and these pretzels are especially fun to make. You’ll need to help children with the boiling bit, as the hefty measure of bicarbonate in the water tends to make the water bubble up quite a bit. Boiling the dough before baking it makes these pretzels wonderfully chewy to eat. Soft, long pretzels; a good thing.



  • 350g strong white bread flour, plus a little extra for kneading
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 240g water (measuring water is more accurate)
  • 1 x 7g sachet active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 30g baking soda
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Poppy seeds, to top


  1. Mix the flour, sugar, oil and water with the yeast to make a cohesive dough. It should be slightly sticky; if it seems dry, knead in an additional tablespoon or two of water. Cover and rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the salt and fold the dough a couple more times to combine, cover and let the dough prove for about 45 minutes to an hour.
  3. Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured work surface, fold it over a few times to gently deflate it and divide it into 12 pieces. Use a bit of flour to roll each piece of dough into a 12-15cm thick rope, place on an oiled tray and leave for 30 minutes to prove covered in a clean, dry tea towel.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/Gas 7.
  5. Meanwhile, bring a large pan of water to a boil. Carefully add the baking soda to the boiling water, it will bubble up.
  6. Gently remove pretzels from the baking tray and drop into the boiling water, three or four at a time. Simmer about 30 seconds, turn and simmer an additional 30 seconds.
  7. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a clean tea towel-lined tray to dry, before returning each back to the oiled baking tray. Repeat with remaining pretzels until they have all been boiled.
  8. Brush the pretzels with the beaten egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake in the hot oven until browned, about 12-15 minutes. Best served warm.

Churros with melted chocolate sauce

Doughnuts, Spanish style. My three are over the moon when we make these together. Lemon curd also proved popular here.


About 16 churros


  • 250ml water
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 40g butter
  • 125g plain flour
  • 50ml double cream
  • 50ml whole milk
  • 100g dark or milk chocolate, broken into pieces (use any surplus Easter eggs)
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

To serve

  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. In a large pan over a high heat, bring the water to the boil, add the sugar, a pinch of salt and the butter, and stir until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat, and stir in the flour until the mixture forms a sticky dough.
  2. In a small pan over a moderate heat, heat the cream and milk, then add the chocolate and stir to a smooth chocolate sauce. Remove from the heat and keep somewhere warm.
  3. Get a grown-up to help from here: heat 5cm of oil in a deep, high-sided frying pan to 190C (test with a teaspoonful of the batter; when hot enough it should bubble up and float immediately).
  4. Pipe or use wet hands to roll and shape the dough into tubes and drop into the hot oil in batches and fry until crisp and golden (wet your hands more if the dough sticks).
  5. Use a slotted spoon to turn the churros over in the oil and fry on the other side for about four minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  6. Combine the 50g sugar with the cinnamon, and toss over the churros.
  7. Serve warm, dipped in the chocolate sauce.

Lemon curd

This is the perfect stirring job for a child who wants to learn to use the hob – it’s low and slow cooking. You can use oranges, clementines or tangerines here, if you’d rather.


One to two jars


  • 200ml juice from large unwaxed lemons (about 4), plus the zest, finely grated
  • 250g sugar
  • 100g cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2 eggs plus 2 egg yolks


  1. Put the lemon juice and zest, the sugar and the butter into a wide pan over the lowest heat. Stir from time to time until the butter has melted.
  2. Mix the eggs and egg yolks lightly with a whisk in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the eggs to the pan, continually whisking the curd over a gentle heat for about 12-15 minutes, until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Make sure you scrape the sides of the pan and never stop stirring. Do not allow it to boil.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir occasionally as it cools a bit. Pour into warm, sterilised jars and seal. It will keep for about three weeks in the refrigerator. Once opened use within one week.
  5. You can pass the curd through a sieve if you find that it’s not perfectly smooth, but if you’ve stirred it well enough, you shouldn’t need to.

Leftover porridge bread

This loaf bakes with a terrific crust and a chewy, almost crumpet-like texture to the crumb. I don’t knead this bread; a vigorous mixing is all it needs. The children can easily make this. My bet is that you’ll find yourself making extra porridge for breakfast to make this bread.



  • 500g strong white bread flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 200g leftover cooked porridge (at room temperature)
  • 300ml warm water
  • 5g salt
  • 1 x 7g sachet active dry yeast
  • Handful of oats


  1. Put the flour, porridge and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In a jug, mix the water and yeast together, then combine this with the flour and porridge mix, mixing well with a spoon until combined. The dough will be wet.
  3. Cover the bowl with cling film or a damp cloth and put aside somewhere warm until doubled in size, about one-and-a-half to two hours.
  4. Lightly flour your work surface and line a loaf tin with baking parchment.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl, and scrape it on to the floured surface. Gather the dough and fold it approximately four times in on itself.
  6. Turn the dough over seam side down and, using your hands, gently cup the sides of the dough until you have a loaf shape that fits a 900g tin.
  7. Carefully lift into the lined tin and cover with a cloth and allow to double in size. The dough will still be fairly wet, but manageable, to work with.
  8. Preheat your oven to 230C/210C fan/Gas 8, or as hot as possible.
  9. Use a serrated knife, sharp knife or a pair of scissors to slash the loaf with one, 1cm-deep stripe along the loaf. The slash allows the steam to escape and for the dough to expand. Scatter the top of the loaf with the oats.
  10. Place in the oven, and reduce the temperature to 200C/180C fan/Gas 6.
  11. Bake for 35-40 until the loaf is a golden brown with a firm crust. It will sound hollow when tapped underneath if it’s ready.
  12. Cool on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before cutting and serving.

Spiced date butter

My daughter Ivy is especially fond of butter. Sweetened with dried fruit and given a hefty dose of mixed spice, this is her favourite toast topping. As well as eating it, she also quite likes making this. I tend to chop the dates and Ivy chops the butter and combines (hands squelching gleefully) the rest of the ingredients before shaping and chilling it in the fridge.
