North Staffordshire Oatcakes

North Staffordshire oatcakes are a local delicacy in the North Staffordshire area of ​​England, and so may be known to non-locals as a North Staffordshire oatcake or Potteries oatcake. These use flour and yeast, whereas other oatcakes do not. When pre-cooked, they are a form of fast food, and catering outlets in the area usually offer oatcakes with fillings such as cheese, bacon, sausage and egg. They can be re-heated by frying in butter, or by grilling. In addition, pikelets are often served opposite oatcakes in a similar fashion.


8oz fine oatmeal
8oz wholewheat or plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 / 2oz fresh yeast
1 1/2 pints warm milk and water, mixed half and half
1 teaspoon sugar


Add the salt to the flour and oatmeal.

Dissolve the yeast with a little warm liquid and add the sugar. Allow the mixture to become frothy.
Mix the dry ingredients with the yeast liquid to make a batter.

Cover the battery with a clean cloth and leave it in a warm place for an hour.

Bake the oatcake on a well-greased griddle. Put enough batter onto the griddle to produce an oatcake about 8-9 inches in diameter. The surface will be covered in holes as it cooks.

Turn the oatcake after 2 – 3 minutes when the upper side appears dry and the underneath is golden brown, and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes.
