Oat pancakes (for the non carb fearing members)

Recommended Posts

Oatcakes are a local favourite in Stoke on Trent in England, particularly at breakfast. You can find many recipes on Google.

"bake them like normal pancakes" ,,,? Clarification please, I never heard of pancakes being baked.

What do you call putting them in a frying pan then ?

"Frying", "baking" involves the use of an oven.

 

I think most of us understood what was meant.

Thanks, sometimes I miss the finer nuances. 

 

Problem was that we in the Netherlands use baking for both what you call frying and baking. Frying is something we call what is done with french fries.

Don't worry, I speak our stupid language as a native and get confused. Actually it's not really frying either as the pan is only lightly oiled. I would just use "cook".

 

OK enough of the English lesson, my oatcakes will burn (yes, I'm making some) :smile:

Yes, stupid question but as he uses baking soda I thought I was missing something. However on googling I found this: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/520634/scottish-oat-cakes

which does involve baking,

So I'm working out the difference between oat pancakes and oat cakes. Pancakes go in a pan, not an oven, baking soda would be pointless if frying?

Well those were rather good, "sadly" madam drizzled honey all over them so not really the healthy option (it was fresh local honey mind) :tongue:

 

Used robblok's simple recipe made with guinea fowl eggs.

I just got it from the website, i think the baking soda is supposed to make the pancakes rise a bit (don't think it works for me). I did forget one thing in the original short movie clip they added a banana too.. not sure why i forgot it. I forgot to put it in my pancakes yesterday too. 

 

I am just going to use it as a change for once in a while.

Actually, I think I'm glad you missed the banana, might have been a bit much with the honey too.

Nice, ah you can't have it all a bit of honey can be good unless your wife finds out... oops that is an other kind of honey :). 

 

I had them yesterday as I normally have quite a boring set of meals i choose from when I am trying to lose weight. (gained a bit a few kg's because lack of training and diet caused by lack of sleep). Now I seem to be training good again and on a diet to lose those few kg's.

 

I don't mind eating the same day in day out, though the GF can't do that she rather not eat then and does not get hungry (hence her light weight). We are not all build the same some have naturally more appetite then others. Still within our own range we can always improve.
