English Staffordshire Oatcakes

What's the big idea?

These can be served in many ways, as part of a larger meal, or as sweet or savoury snacks, depending on what you mix them with. For example, for a larger meal you could serve them with bacon, eggs and whatever else you enjoy in your fried breakfast. For a savoury snack, top with sliced cheddar cheese and some traditional English pickle, or as a sweet alternative, spread with jam or honey.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 225g oatmeal
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 15g yeast
  • 450ml warm milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

What To Do

  • Mix the warm milk with an equal quantity of warm water
  • Mix the salt with the flour and oatmeal in a large bowl
  • Dissolve the yeast in a little of the warm water/milk and add the sugar. Allow the mixture to become frothy
  • Mix the yeast mixture into the dry ingredients, and then mix in the remainder of the warm milk/water
  • Cover the mixture with a clean cloth and leave in a warm place for about an hour
  • Pour enough mixture into a well-greased heavy-based frying pan or griddle to make an oatcake of about 9 inches (22cm) in diameter
  • Fry the oatcake for 2-3 minutes, and then flip or turn when the top side has a dry appearance and the underneath is golden brown. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes
  • Repeat with any remaining mixture
