I bought a bag of oats last Weekend intending to use them for something like bread, but then I remembered these little oatcakes. Plus the oatcakes will go nice with my soup that I will make for work. The oatcakes go really well with cheese and homemade chutney.
I get three sprigs of rosemary out of the garden. I take the leaves off and I chop them up finely. I put them in the bowl. I then weigh out 200g of oats. I then do about 20 twists of black pepper into the bowl. I then weigh out 75g of strong wholemeal flour and put it into the bowl. I then add a pinch of salt and a pinch of bicarbonate of soda. I mix it all up. I then weigh out 30g of butter and add it to the bowl. I mix it up. I then measure out 100 ml of cold water. I pour that into the bowl and mix it all up. I then get the blue mat out and tip the mixture out onto it. I then roll it out till its about ½ cm thick. I then use a circular 6cm cutter to cut out he oatcakes I got 28 out of the mixture. I put them all onto a lined baking tray. I put them into a pre heated oven of 180 degrees and let them cook for 20 minutes.
Once cooked I leave them to cool before I but them in an air tight container. I think I might makes these at Christmas time and give them out as presents with my onion chutney to a certain biology teacher but don’t tell her. Now I’m looking forward to having these with my soup.
So until next time happy baking.
