Here is a really quick and simple recipe to make some Scottish oatcakes. These are a delicious Scottish favorite, and since they are not widely available here in the US, I have to make my own.

2 cups of rolled oats
1 Tablespoon of dried currants
1 Tablespoon of dried cranberries
Butter, salted or unsalted works 70 grams (2.5 ounces)

  1. First chop the dried fruit and place in a bowl.
  2. Lightly pulse blend the oats until they are fairly fine, but not to powder.
  3. Now is probably a good time to heat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit or 190 Celsius.
  4. Put the oats into a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add and mix in the chopped dried fruit.
  6. Once mixed add the melted butter and mix into a thick dough.
  7. Add a couple of tablespoons of warm water and mix in until the dough is sticky but not wet.
  8. Sprinkle some oat flour on a large board and roll till it’s an even thickens of about 7mm (.25″) thick
  9. Cut into whatever shape and size you prefer
  10. Place on a baking tray in the preheated oven for about 27 minutes, check at about 22
  11. Remove from the oven and let them cool a little and enjoy warm with honey or cheese on them
  12. Store the remainders (if any) in a sealed container.
