"These are pancakes and a traditional favorite from the North Staffordshire area of England. Delicious with butter or jam! You may grind regular oatmeal in a blender to make your own oat flour."

  1. Place warm water and warm milk into a large bowl. Stir in sugar and yeast, and let stand for 5 minutes, or until frothy. Mix in oat flour, whole wheat flour and salt, blending thoroughly. Cover bowl, and let stand in a warm place for 1 hour.
  2. Heat a large griddle or two skillets over medium heat, and grease well. Spoon enough batter onto the pan to make a thin pancake about 8 inches across for each one. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the top surface is covered with holes. Turn over and brown on the other side. Place oatcakes on a warm plate until ready to serve. Best served immediately, but can be frozen and heated later.

I wonder if I did something wrong with this, because my batter was so thick it was not at all spreadable. I had to add alot more liquid to even begin to spread it and it took a long time too co...

I've just made these for New Years' Breakfast.They are much thicker and denser than pancakes that we are used to. Directions say "spoon to make a thin pancake," but my batter was much too thick ...

great recipe very much like crepes but the yeast and oat flour give them an unmistakable flavour .enjoyed with bacon and eggs on a lazy sunday morning .A+++

Something is wrong with the proportions in this recipe. The oatcakes should be like crepes. The batter in this recipe is much too thick.

best with a sausage inside and a good amount of cheese.

Didn't quite taste the same as back home, but still an okay recipe.

Increased liquid/flour ratio to 2:1. Used 1 package of yeast. Added 1 tsp baking powder before frying in hot griddle.
