Staffordshire Oatcakes
« on: April 07, 2008, 08:14:54 pm »
Had some (in Stafford, by chance...) on Sunday, with cheese & mushrooms, and they were great :)

Of course, I ought to mention here that Yorkshire oatcakes, or haverbread, is similar, just a *bit* superior...  ;)

Yep, nice things. We've usually got some in the fridge, but they are much nicer straight from the oatcake shop!

Mmmm, lovely.  I can recommend the Oatcakes in the pub in Swinscoe (on the A52 West of Ashbourne).  Yum.

Looks like they're going to save it!

I'm suddenly hungry after seeing the picture on that link though :P

Yes, it got a reprieve.  :D

I really, really, really want some oatcakes now. Cheese, please; maybe one with cheese and bacon.

One of the best things about living in Cambridge was that Bar Hill Tesco sold them  :thumbsup:

Luton Tesco doesn't  :'(

Nooo. Pikelets are very different. More like a crumpet.

I haven't had lobby for years

The Hole in the wall is in Bucknall in Hanley, the last one to flog them straight out of the kitchen window

There are however several oatcake shops left in the city, many still on the corner of a row of terraces, High Lane Oatcakes in Burslem is in even in the Gordon Ramsay guide

I must admit though I myself have never been a fan oatcakes, much preffering the humble bacon and egg cob or balm cake

Oh alright then,
 Oatmeal is formed from drying out then milling whole, de-husked oat grains. It's available in various grades. Pinhead is the coarsest, and the other grades ascend through rough and medium to fine and superfine. The medium and fine grades are best for baking. (Porridge oats, or rolled oats, are made by steaming then flattening the oat grain. They have a totally different texture from oatmeal.)

There are a number of well-named shops, the "Oatcake Coral" and "Oat cuisine" come to mind.
