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.
Here's the list of what you need:
What To Do
- 225g oatmeal
- 225g plain flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 15g yeast
- 450ml warm milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 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
