• Method

Lightly grease a couple of large baking trays.

Place the dry ingredients into a bowl. Rub in the butter then add enough water to make a stiff dough.

Millers Larder recommend experimenting with different flavours. Try adding things like dried nettles, salt and pepper, chilli, grated cheese, wild garlic or tapenade at the rubbing in stage, before adding the water. You could divide your dough into three equal portions and make different flavours of oatcakes in one batch.

Roll the dough out onto a floured table until approximately 1cm thick, then cut into rounds or use any shaped cutter.

Bake for 20-30 minutes 350°F/175°C/gas mark 4.

The recipe makes a large batch of oatcakes, but they will keep fresh for four to six weeks if you store them in an airtight box.
