Canadian Oatcakes

I broke away from 'Winnie Watching' for a few minutes yesterday and made Canadian oatcakes.

These are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.

They taste a lot better than they look.

  • 3 cups large flake slow cooking rolled oats
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups unsalted butter , cubed 
  • ½ cup water (approx)
  •   slow cooking rolled oats for rolling
    1. Preheat oven to 375F
    2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl
    3. Cut in butter with pastry blender
    4. Slowly add water until mixture just begins to hold together
    5. Divide dough into two portions
    6. On a large surface, roll dough into 10 x 12 inch rectangle ¼ inch thick
    7. Generously cover the top with extra rolled oats; roll them firmly into the surface of the dough
    8. Cut into 2x4 inch cakes; place on parchment covered cookie sheet
    9. Bake for 14-18 minutes, or until golden
    10. Place on cooling rack and store in an airtight container
