So I needed a regency-type recipe to go with Tuesday’s post. Hmm, where to look? I know! My sister blog! So like I said MysteriousEats.wordpress.com isn’t lazy, but if my older sister blog JaneAustenRunsMyLife.wordpress.comhas already reviewed or posted something, I like to just copy and paste it here (usually without asking)
- 1 Cup of Rolled Oats
- 1/3 Cup of Flour
- 1/2 Tsp of Sugar
- 1/4 Tsp of Salt
- 1/4 Tsp of Baking Soda
- 1/4 Cup of Unsalted Butter, Cut into Pieces
- 2-3 Tbsps of Water
- Honey (Optional)
- Marmalade (optional)
- Preheat Oven to 325 degrees F
- In a food processor fitted with metal blades, process oats to a fine meal.
- Add the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and butter.
- Process briefly to mix well.
- With motor running add 2-3 tbsps of water and process 20 seconds to form a crumbly dough.
- Add as much water as needed to achieve the desired texture.
- Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface.
- Knead a couple of times to incorporate any crumbs, then form into a ball.
- Cut in half.
- Using a rolling pin, roll out each half into rounds 6 inches wide an 1/4 inch thick.
- Crimp edges with your finger and thumb to make a fluted border.
- Using a metal spatula, transfer the rounds to a baking sheet and cut into four equal wedges. separate the wedges slightly then prick the top of each one 3 or 4 times with a fork.
- Bake until pale and tan and no longer soft (about 25-30 mins)
- Transfer the oatcakes to a wire rack to cool.
- Serve with honey or marmalade, if desired.
- Makes about 8.
Thoughts After Baking:
These were fantastic! So good, and perfect with your tea!
I would ground the oats in the processor or blender, but when you get to the water just put it in a bowl and use your hands. Otherwise, delicious!
