  • Mix the oatmeal, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl.
  • Meanwhile combine the margarine and 150ml water in a pan and heat gently until the margerine has dissolved.
  • Quickly pour just enough of this into the dry ingredients to form a firm dough.
  • Turn the dough onto a work sufrace sprinkled with oatmeal and roll out to about 3mm thick.
  • Using a 7.5cm pastry cutter cut out about 12 rounds (re-roll the scraps).
  • You can also cut into triangles, the other traditional shape for these oatcakes.
  • Either cook the oatcakes on a hot griddle for about 5 to 8 minutes (do not turn) until they begin to curl and are firm.
  • Or place on a greased baking tray and bake in an oven pre-heated to 170°C for about 30 minutes, or until crisp.
