Could someone please enlighten me on the difference between the heathen Derbyshire Oatcake and the One True Staffordshire item?

I had 18 after my recent trip to Leek.  Unfortunately I left them in the North-East at my parents-in law's house, so I had to ask them to pop them into their freezer, so I'm still doing without.

Sometime this month, I think I will have to make a batch.

Derbyshire are thicker and (I think) include more leavening. They're both very good. Neither is 'heathen' if you come from Cheshire, tho the oatcake bakery in Macclesfield made the Staffs version

No good, you now need to go to the butchers and ask them for their recipe or the suppliers recipe.  :demon:

Do you -

Roll them around a filling (as per the oatcake shops in Stoke - e.g. Oatcake Corale, Oat Cuisine etc etc

Use them as a sort of pizza base (a la Ramblers'Retreat)

Fry them in bacon fat as part of a cooked breakfast (like my Mother used to do)

?

Doesn't matter what you wrap them round/dip them in/drizzles over them, they are deelish.

One of ny mates (a fine Staffordian fellow) makes a kind of "Stokie Fajita" with them.

Well worth having....me duck.

Until now I was completely unaware of the existence of either Staffordshire or Derbyshire oatcakes.

Can I conclude from this that they were made famous by Simon Cowell?

Turns out nobody CBA to go buy oatmeal, so we had galettes instead.  Nom. :)

Haverbread next week, perhaps.

From another thread.



Me, passing through Keele, Staffs.

I had a Bacon-filled Oatcake for 2nd brekky from the pun-tastic Oatcuisine.

The Staffs ones are ok but not "real oatcakes" as we Scots understand them.

Each to their own though.
