So easy to make, so delicious, good weekend food.
I want to try these on the BBQ!
Leave out the sugar and fruit, and serve with relish and cheese. Yum!
|200 g medium ground oatmeal||25 g plain flour||0.5 tspn salt|
|0.5 tspn baking powder||50 g butter||50 g caster sugar|
|75 -90 ml hot water||50 g currants|
Heat and prepare a girdle or heavy based frying pan. Place oatmeal, flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the dried fruit. Add the water a tablespoon at a time until a soft dough forms.
Turn onto a board scattered with oatmeal, and knead lightly. Roll dough to 6mm thick and cut into squares, rounds or wedges. Bake on a griddle for 5 minutes, turn and bake a further 5 minutes.
Serve with lashings of butter and home made jam.
