Bonus bake! Scottish Oatcakes

On Saturday I bought 3kg of oats for porridge, but decided to reallocate some of this for home made oatcakes for lunches this week. Very simple recipe with very tasty outcomes! So here’s a little bonus bake 🙂

Ingredients (it says makes 14, but I got 25 out of it at approx 60 cals per cake)

  • 225g oats (I used whole jumbo oats)
  • 60g wholewheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 60g butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 60-80ml hot water

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190C.
  2. Mix together the oats, flour, salt, sugar and bicarbonate of soda.
  3. Add the butter and rub together until everything is mixed and has the consistency of large bread crumbs (I mixed in a blender, which also grinds the oats to a more manageable size).
  4. Add the water (from a recently boiled kettle) bit by bit and combine until you have a somewhat thick dough. The amount of water varies; depending on the oats.
  5. Sprinkle some extra flour and oats on a work surface and roll out the dough to approx. 1/2cm thickness. Use a cookie cutter, or top of a glass, to cut out shapes 
  6. Place the oat cakes on a baking tray and bake for appprox. 20-30mins. or until slightly golden brown
