Scottish Oatcakes | Gideon Hitchin
How to Make Oatcakes
Oatcakes are a traditional Scottish cracker or biscuit that goes well with cheese, jam, dips or even as they are. It's really important to use very fresh oats in these, otherwise they'll taste stale even after baking. You'll need around 25 minutes to make these, with another 20 minutes for cooking time.
This recipe makes around 20 oatcakes.
225g (8 oz) medium oatmeal
1 teaspoon salt
15g (1/2 oz) butter or margarine
100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) tepid (lukewarm) water
Extra oatmeal when rolling the oatcakes
Place the oatmeal into the mixing bowl.Add the butter and salt. Using the tips of your fingers, gently rub the butter into the oatmeal.
Add the water.Mix through, then leave for 5 to 10 minutes. This will allow the oatmeal to completely absorb the water.
Using your hands, gently pull the mixture about to form a ball.Cover the rolling board with oatmeal flakes to help prevent sticking.
Move the oatmeal ball to the rolling board.Using a rolling pin, roll the mixture flat. The mixture should be about 3mm (1/8") thick. Keep adding oatmeal to prevent sticking.
Cut the oatcakes into rounds.Use a round biscuit (cookie) cutter or the base of a glass but try to get a size for the rounds of about 7.5 centimeter (3 in) (3") in diameter. Arrange the oatcakes on the baking tray (sheet).
Place the oatcakes in the oven to bake for 15 minutes.Turn the oatcakes over with a spatula or similar tool and bake them for another 5 minutes.
QuestionCan I use peanut butter if I want to?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes, of course you can!Thanks!
QuestionCan I use oil instead of I'm out of butter?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerEven though regular vegetable oils might work, it is not advisable. They are pro inflammatory and prone to oxidation. The basis of this explanation is based on the chemical structure of the oil molecules. Try using coconut oil, since it is more resistant to heat than regular vegetable oils.Thanks!
- Store the oatcakes for up to a week in an airtight container. If the container is not airtight, they will become soft and aren't as enjoyable.
- Wrapped in cellophane in a neat row with ribbons at each end, these make an excellent addition to a gourmet food basket.
- Wear oven mitts and be careful of the hot surfaces when turning over the oatcakes.
