Oatcake Recipe This recipe makes 6 servings.
Fine (Pinhead) Oatmeal 8 oz
Bicarbonate of Soda 1/2 ts
Pinch of Salt
Melted Butter 2 tb
Hot Water 1/4 pt
Extra Oatmeal for rolling
Method: Set the oven to 200/Gas 5 or heat a griddle or heavy frying-pan.
Mix the oatmeal, bicarbonate of soda and salt together in a bowl.
Add the melted butter and the hot water.
Stir well until it makes a soft paste.
Sprinkle some oatmeal on a board. From the dough into a round and roll it out as thinly as possible, adding oatmeal to the surface as necessary, to prevent sticking. Brush off the excess oatmeal. Cut the dough into 4 or 6 pieces.
To oven bake; place on a large ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
To griddle bake; bake on a hot griddle or frying-pan until the edges begin to curl. Turnover and cook the other side.
Do not let the oatcakes brown; they should be a pale fawn colour. Put on a wire rack to cool.
They are delicious served with almond butter or for a sweet treat spread a little agave nectar and top with strawberries!
