Scottish oatcakes. An old wise Scot told me to try those and since then it’s like a drug to me:
I found several recipes on the internet but all with fancy stuff such as chocolate vanilla or other weird things.
I’m pretty sure the recipe is rather simple but I would like to get the old traditional one if possible.Posted 4 years agosingletrackmindMember
Made some today actually.Posted 4 years ago
Oatbran , Flour (plain) , Bertolli Marg , Brown sugar , pinch of salt.
100g Marg + 100g of Sugar + pinch of Ginger in a bowl. Nuke it for 1min.
Stir in Oatbran and flour till a stiff mix is hand moldable. Not too dry or they crumble.
Form into whatever biscuit shaped iten you require. Bake for about 15mins at 175.
Ok , in a dryish but still cheap and reasonably healthy alternative to Granola Bars .MosesMember

The North Staffs/Stoke oatcakes probably do originate from the Scots ones from what I understand. The Jacobites got as far as Derby and maybe some decided better on the long hike back to the glens and stayed coinciding with the birth of the pottery industry down the road where the guys firing the bottle kilns over a number of days needed feeding with something they could heat up on the job so to speak.
