I've had a hankering for oat cakes for a while and what better way to get them than to make them myself! These are super east to make and feel lovely and wholesome.
Scottish Oat Cakes
(Makes about 14)
60g wholewheat flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
60-80ml hot water
Pre-heat the oven to 190C.
Mix together the oats, flour, salt, sugar and bicarbonate of soda.
Add the butter and rub together until everything is mixed and has the consistency of large bread crumbs.
Add the water (from a recently boiled kettle) bit by bit and combine until you have a somewhat thick dough. The amount of water varies; depending on the oats.
Sprinkle some extra flour and oats on a work surface and roll out the dough to a 1/2 cm thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
Place the oat cakes on a baking tray and bake for 20-30mins. or until slightly golden brown.
