Ingredients

1 pound oatmeal
fine
1 pound all-purpose flour
1 ounce yeast, active dry
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 ½ pints water
warm
*
For small quantity
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 x water
to mix
*

Directions

NOTE: If you can't get fine oatmeal, use Quaker oats and grind fine in a food processer.

Mix oatmeal, flour and salt in a warm bowl.

Cream yeast with sugar and add ½ pint of the warm water.

Pour the yeast mixture into the dry ingredients and add the rest of the water, mixing slowly until a thin batter is formed.

Set aside in a warm place until well risen, about 30 mins.

Grease a large frying pan heat.

Pour cup full of the batter onto the pan and cook like thick pancakes for 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

Serve warmed up in a frying pan with bacon and eggs or with lemon juice and sugar, or toasted with cheese or golden syrup.

To make a small quantity mix the flour, oatmeal and salt with the water to form a thin batter, and add the baking powder just before cooking.

The oatcakes will keep for 2 to 3 days, or for 3 months if frozen.

Seemed authentic, nice change from toast, nice with a slice of cheese melted on top - easy to make ahead and very easy to adjust the recipe to make as much or as little as needed.

I can understand the basic recipe - but I'm mystified by the "to make a small quantity...." paragraph.
Baking powder? Where did that come from??
