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