Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Mix together the oats, flour, salt, sugar and bicarbonate of soda. Add the butter, then rub together until it's the consistency of large breadcrumbs.

  • STEP 2

    Gradually pour in 60-90ml water from a recently boiled kettle, stirring until it forms a thick dough.

  • STEP 3

    Sprinkle some extra flour on a work surface and roll out the dough to about ½cm thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out about 16 rounds (the final number of oatcakes depends on the size of cutter you use).

  • STEP 4

    Place the oatcakes on a baking tray and bake for 20 mins or until golden.
