Staffordshire Oatcakes

Staffordshire Oatcakes

Staffordshire Oatcakes are made like a pancake but are not so light with more texture and they are really filling. They go best with savoury fillings of all sorts.


Elderflower  Partly whole wheat Bread with porridge.

Elderflower Partly whole wheat Bread with porridge.

In this recipe I replaced water with elderflower drink, which I made myself: just socked in cold water elderflower blossom for the night, in the morning brought it to the boil and turned gas off, when it culled down it was ready to use. Can be prepared in advance and kept in fridge for few days.


Sourdough Staffordshire Oatcakes

Sourdough Staffordshire Oatcakes

Back in the day Stokies would pass half a dozen Oatcake Shops to buy from their favourite place. It's all about the texture, flavour "and 'em not being being too thick, duck". In homage to High Lane, Tunstall I now make these in exile at home in the Welsh hills on a cast iron planc usually used for Welsh Cakes.

Easy Malthouse with Oat & Barley Loaf

A quick and easy granary loaf with a bit of Oatmeal and Barley thrown in (a bit of a using up stuff in the cupboard recipe) I use a bread machine to do all the grunt work, but it would be just us good made in a mixer with a dough hook or even made by hand.

Most recipes for so called 'Rye' bread include wheat flour. So, if you have a sensitivity to wheat gluten, these recipes are no good for you.


Cooked pinhead oatmeal breakfast with fruits and nuts!

Cooked pinhead oatmeal breakfast with fruits and nuts!

Cooking Oats for breakfast is a healthy alternative for many. With cooler weather over the autumn and winter, its best to move away from colder breakfasts to warm breakfasts like cooked steel cut / pin-head oats. Health Benefits: Pinhead Oats are nutritionally similar to other forms of oats. However pinhead Oats are different from quick or rolled Oats, in that the cooked pinhead oats release carbohydrates slowly into the bloodstream. While pinhead Oats take a bit longer to cook, their low glycemic index means that they do not cause any sharp increases in the blood sugar levels and you’ll stay full for a little while longer.

Porridge with almonds and cranberries

Porridge with almonds and cranberries

This traditional and delicious Porridge can be made using the organic pinhead oatmeal, a little sea salt and water. As you may know pinhead oatmeal has very thick, rough grains and the larger pinhead grains require a longer cooking time (even pre-soaking).

Honeyed Spelt and Oat Loaf

Honeyed Spelt and Oat Loaf

Despite the name this soft textured loaf isn’t actually sweet and goes very well with sharp cheese. It is wonderfully easy loaf to make with a limited knead technique but would, I think, adapt without fuss to your preferred style or a breadmaker.


Cranachan from Scotland

Cranachan from Scotland

Cranachan is a Scottish dessert which was originally made with crowdie cheese, oats, whisky, honey and fresh raspberries. More modern recipes have swapped the crowdie cheese for a simple whipped cream, although the recipe itself has remained much the same. Dessert is wonderful! And smells and tastes of single malt :) I used Mark Greenaway recipe. I added honey and shortbread biscuits. More pictures on FOOD TO WARM THE SOUL
