DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 200C/400°F.
  • Put the oats, salt and baking soda in a bowl.
  • Make a well, pour in the lard and stirring with a wooden spoon, add in enough of the hot water to make a stiff dough. If you're using oatmeal, you should need about 75 ml; with porridge oats, you may need as much as 200 ml.
  • Knead it for a while to make it come smoothly together, then roll out as thinly as you can.
  • Cut into triangles or rounds.
  • Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are turning golden-brown and the oatcakes themselves are firm (they'll crisp up on cooling).
  • Remove to a wire rack to cool.
