Walnut and black pepper oatcakes (makes about 20, preparation time 20 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes)

January 22, 2012

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 50g walnuts coarsely chopped
  • 125g fine oatmeal
  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 75g butter
  • water

 

 

Optional Extras:

 

You can also add 1 tbsp of honey to the mix after the butter has been added.  This does take away from the other flavours, but if you like honey as a dominant flavour then go ahead.

 

 

Here’s what you do:

Step 1 - Preheat the oven to 190C. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.

 

Step 2 - Heat the butter in a saucepan until bubbling.  Tip the butter into the dry ingredients and add 3 tablespoons of water. Combine everything to make a soft dough that isn’t too sticky.

 

Step 3 - On a floured work surface roll the dough out to about 2mm thick. Cut our rounds and place them on a baking sheet lines with parchment paper.

 

Step 4 - Bake the oatcakes for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.

 

Kitchen implements required:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Tablespoon
  • 2 baking trays covered in parchment paper
  • Cooling wire

Where some of the recipes on this website might have started out as recipes from published chefs, I have amended them and developed them to my taste. Where they remain materially similar to the original recipe I have endeavoured to make sure that the original recipe was already freely available, and I always credit the source.
