From http://www.allotment.org.uk/recipe/77/recipe-for-north-staffordshire-oatcake/ NOTE: Try to use the heaviest frying pan available as this will keep the heat constant which is best for making oatcakes. Great served with fried bacon, mushrooms and cheese as a savoury snack or with butter and jam as a sweet treat. Oatcakes can be frozen and a microwave is the ideal method of defrosting and reheating them.

Recipe Ingredients for North Staffordshire Oatcakes

225 g oatmeal (fine)
225 g wholewheat or plain flour
1 tsp salt
15 g yeast
450 ml warm milk
450 ml warm water
1 tsp sugar

Recipe Directions for North Staffordshire Oatcakes

  1. Mix the water and milk together.

  2. Mix the salt to the flour and oatmeal in a large bowl.

  3. Dissolve the yeast with a little warm liquid and add the sugar. Allow the mixture to become frothy.

  4. Mix the dry ingredients with the yeast liquid to make a batter adding the remainder of the warm liquid.

  5. Cover the batter with a clean cloth and leave in a warm place for about an hour.

  6. Pour out enough batter on a well-greased griddle to make an oatcake of about 22cm.

  7. The surface will be covered in holes as it cooks.

  8. Flip the oatcake after 2-3 minutes when the top side has a dry appearance and the underneath is a golden brown colour and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
