Anybody make oatcakes on a regular basis. Ive been making flap jacks but George and I are starting to feel a little snug in our clothes :oops: , so wanted to use up the oats making something a wee bit different.

I don't make them any more, Meg, but I kept the recipe. Thye're made with oatmeal, so if you use porridge oats for your flapjacks then this recipe won't be of help.

1/2 lb. oatmeal
1/2 tsp. of salt
1tbsp. bacon fat, melted
Pinch of baking soda
Warm water to mix

Mix oatmeal, salt and baking soda and sift together. Add the fat and mix to a fairly soft consistency with the water. Turn out on a board dusted with a liberal amount of oatmeal, knead lightly and then roll out to a 1/4 " thickness. Keep the board well dusted to prevent the dough from sticking. Form into a round with a plate. Sprinkle with oatmeal, cut into four or eight pieces and cook on a warmed girdle until the edges begin to curl. Turn and cook the other side.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Had oatmeal in the cupboard too so will give this a bash if I can find baking soda, thanks.
