Oatcakes (Irish)

Home | Recipes | O
Bread Irish


  • 6 oz Oatmeal (preferably fine)
  • 2 oz Flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 10 fl Warm water


Mix flour and salt together. Slowly add warm water. Roll out on a floured board to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into triangles. Cook on a pan or griddle until golden on both sides. Dry out in a cool oven (150 C / 300 F) until crisp. -- These cakes are eaten buttered, with a glass of milk, for supper, but are also good with oily fish such as herring or mackerel. (They are also terrific with wine and cheese.)
