“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.

My husband is a Stokie and cant live without his oatcakes. He loves to put them under the broiler with cheese and bacon.... cant say the oats help the cholesterol that way! Make these a day or two ahead, stack them on a plate and cover with saran wrap. They are great for quick lunch with tuna or chicken salad. They are wonderful re-warmed wrapped around scrambled eggs or cheese.



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 cook, and came out rather tough and doughy. Something was wrong with the liquid/dry ratio.



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 to spread.
