A few weeks ago I came across a recipe on one of my favourite blogs. This oatcake recipe looked so easy and so tasty that I stored it in my mind for future use. So, when my Mum bought home a pack of oatcake men which got gobbled up within seconds I dug out this recipe and put it to good use.
To make these lovely oatcakes you will need:
220g rolled oats
30g melted butter
100ml hot (not boiling) water
100g cheddar cheese, grated
A pinch of salt & a good grinding of black pepper
(*recipe adapted from here)
Simply put your oats in a blender to make them finer. Pour over the melted butter and mix together. Then, add the cheese, salt and black pepper then add the water. Mix this all together until the mixture combines and looks a bit like a dough. Roll this out on to a floured surface and roll until about 3-5mm thick. Take your favourite cutter and place the shapes on a lined baking tray. At this point you real cheese lovers could grate some more cheese over the top – parmesan would probably work well! Put into the oven at 190 degrees and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Eat with pretty much anything, or just on their own!
Not only was this my first time at making oatcakes, but I also put a bit more effort in with styling my photos; what do you think?
