Easy Scottish Oatcakes Recipe



Easy #Scottish #Oatcakes #Recipe } An Island Family By Grace

 

While I am working at getting back on the healthy eating wagon, my family continue to enjoy meals that have become favourites for us. A lunch that they really enjoy from time to time is some cheddar or goat’s cheese, along with this easy Scottish Oatcakes recipe.

These oatcakes are healthy for them, but as I am currently trying to lose weight, I am sticking with Ryvita when the others have oatcakes.

This recipe makes medium coarse oatcakes, but if you wanted to make them even more rough, you could use all oatmeal, rather than half oatmeal and half flour. It makes about 60 oatcakes, which will last our family for two meals.

Recipe Notes

1. Stir together the oatmeal and flour, then cut in the butter, using a pastry blender or a stand mixer with a dough hook.

2. Stir in cold water gradually until you have a soft, but not sticky dough.

3. Roll out the dough on a board dusted with extra oatmeal, to a thickness of about half a centimetre (approx. 2/10 of an inch).

4. Use a scone or biscuit cutter to cut into rounds (or a glass, if you don't have a cutter). As I am Scottish, I have to insist that you pronounce 'scone' to rhyme with 'gone', not 'bone'!

If you prefer triangular oatcakes, you can cut them using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.

5. Heat a frying pan, (I use two frying pans to make things faster), to a medium high heat, and cook the oatcakes in the dry frying pan. If you were being really authentic, you could use a cast iron griddle!

6. Turn the oatcakes to cook on the other side after 2-3 minutes when they should just be beginning to turn golden brown. Adjust the heat of necessary.

7. Set the oatcakes on a cooling rack, and repeat the method until you have used all the dough.

Serve with cheddar or goat's cheese, or the cheese of your choice, and enjoy!

  1. Thanks Gwen for sharing this great recipe with us at Good Morning Mondays. I have wanted to find a recipe to have with our home made cheese and this sounds just right. Can you store these for awhile in an airtight container? Blessings to you and your family.

    • Thank you Terri, yes we keep half the batch in a plastic box, so the recipe lasts us for two meals. I’d like to hear how you make your homemade cheese!

  2. These look delicious! My husband’s ancestry is Scottish, so it would be fun to make these. Thanks so much for sharing at my Artful Homemaking link-up! 🙂

  3. Thanks Gwen, my husband enjoys feta cheese with crackers and these might be good instead of buying some. I have already put up a post about making feta and I am going to do one on cheddar shortly. Blessings

    • That’s very healthy Claire- what do you use for rolling oats and grinding wheat? I got a hand cranked roller from Freecycle a few years ago, but it didn’t really work. The oats for the oatcakes recipe aren’t rolled like porridge, maybe just coarse ground??

  5. I just bought some Bob’s Red Mill “Scottish” oatmeal so that I could make these. Not sure what the difference is between Scottish oatmeal and regular oatmeal. Is this something eaten in Scotland a lot or just something your family eats a lot of?

    • If it’s the kind of oatmeal I use for oatcakes, it will be coarse ground and kind of ‘bitty’, rather than the flat rolled oats that you would cook for breakfast (we would call that porridge rather than oatmeal). Oatcakes are still commonly eaten here, but most people would buy a box of them instead of making their own. Thanks for your comment, Alisha 🙂

  6. I made these yesterday for breakfast and let the boys choose from strawberry jam, cinnamon honey, or cheese to top them with. I put jalapeno jelly on mine. They were pretty good, I’ll be making them again for sure.
