Cooking Through ENGLAND: Derbyshire Oatcakes!

This was one of our first "Cooking Through England" adventures, part of our unit study on England, and they were a huge hit! And not only that, but extremely simple and fast to make! Definitely put these on your list of recipes to try!


The Recipe:



1 cup regular oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 pinch salt

Add and mix to make a thin batter:

1/2 to 1 cup water (we used the larger amount)

Just before cooking mix in:

1 tbsp. baking powder

Cook as for pancakes on a hot greased griddle until golden brown on both sides. Serve with bacon and eggs or with lemon juice and sugar (or as we did, with maple syrup). Leftovers can be toasted with cheese.


These were a huge hit with our family, and have found a place in our regular recipe rotation. But we should have known! If it's from Derbyshire, it has to be good!


These were a hit with the entire family!
