"Delicious light pancakes made with oats and yeast - traditionally from the Midlands region in England, in particular the county of Staffordshire. The Potteries, an area that is the birthplace of many famous people including Arnold Bennett, Sir Stanley Matthews, Reginald Mitchell, Captain Edward Smith of the Titanic, Josiah Wedgwood, and more recently Robbie Williams…….but just as important to the Potteries as Royal Doulton, Wedgwood etc., are Staffordshire Oatcakes. Once only eaten locally, the Staffordshire Oatcake has grown steadily in popularity over recent years. The traditional filling would be practically any combination of ingredients from an ‘all-day breakfast’ but anything goes these days. Chicken curry, chilli con carne, scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and coronation chicken are now quite the norm amongst the oatcake avant-garde, as well as golden syrup, honey, jam and cream."

"I made these first of all as a lunch, & got adventurous, I thought, when I rolled a bit of shredded BBQ chicken inside & topped them with a homemade blueberry sauce! Later in the day, the two left over were spread with a bit of cream cheese, with the blueberry sauce used as a dip! Very, very nice, & we thoroughly enjoyed the combo of the oatmeal & the flour used! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]"
"Great recipe! These were delicious. I ground my own oatmeal in a Vitamix and with no wheat flour in the pantry, sub'd AP flour. Since the recipe called for salt and I wasn't sure how much, I used 1 1/4 tsp. The consistency of the batter was great -- not too loose, not too thick. I used a pancake pen to 'pour' it onto my Cuisinart Griddler which was lightly greased with bacon fat. Plus, I doubled the recipe so we could enjoy plenty leftovers. Made 4-5" rounds and served English style...with devon double cream and bacon...in celebration of the 2012 London Olympics. Eager to try a sweet version for dessert tonight. Y.U.M."
