  1. I eat a fair amount of oatcakes and was disappointed to find this wasn't a biscuit-orientated discussion.
    I like cracked black pepper ones and I also like the olive oil ones, which are supposed to be better for you than palm oil.
    The worst ones I've had were Rick Stein ones, which were full of sugar. I think he's stopped making them now.

    Proper oatcakes! As anyone who saw Bill Bailey in Stoke recently will know, cheese is the only correct topping!

    The big question is fine ground, or coarse ground oatcakes.....

  7. I've never understood cheese oatcakes.
    Cheese is what you have with them, not in them.

  9. Leek oatcakes would be even worse than cheese oatcakes, in my humble opinion.
  10. They give me really bad headaches!
    I love coarse-ground oatcakes...often eat them on their own. Love their grittiness. Good accompaniment to wine

    that was a bit insensitive.

    Hadn't you noticed that oatcakes are actually more interesting and nobody cared about the flounce?

    There was a flounce?! I was distracted by all this talk of oatcakes! I will be trying out all the different recipes and delivery options and may report back in the new year.
  15. Have you done teaching then eggy?

    I think there is some confusion about the Scottish biscuit type oatcakes that Nairns make and the larger pancakey type we get round here. I assume our local ones are the same as the oatcakes from Stoke people are talking about.
