    About this recipe: A traditional favourite from the North Staffordshire. Delicious with butter or jam! You may grind regular oats in a blender to make your own oat flour.

    Serves: 12 

    • 350ml warm water
    • 350ml warm milk
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 1 (7g) sachet dried active baking yeast
    • 225g oat flour
    • 250g wholemeal flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr45min 

    1. Place warm water and warm milk into a large bowl. Stir in sugar and yeast, and let stand for 5 minutes, or until frothy. Mix in oat flour, wholemeal flour and salt, blending thoroughly. Cover bowl, and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour.
    2. Heat a large griddle or two frying pans over medium heat, and grease well. Spoon enough mixture onto the pan to make a thin pancake about 20cm across for each one. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the top surface is covered with holes. Turn over and brown on the other side. Place oatcakes on a warm plate until ready to serve. Best served immediately, but can be frozen and heated later.

    This is an authentic recipe which tastes just like the ones we used to buy in Macclesfield. These oatcakes are a great versatile health food and easy to make and can freeze.  -  06 May 2015
