by: Anna Stewart
8 oz. oatmeal rough
a pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 dessertspoon melted butter
Directions: Put oatmeal in a bowl and add salt and baking soda. Making a well in the centre and pour in meted butter. Blend together in enough hot water to make a stiff paste, then knead and roll out as thinly as possible. Cut into triangles and bake on a floured tin in a moderately hot oven 400 degrees, until the ends curl up and the cakes are crisp. This should take 20 mins to 30 mins. You could alternatively, bake them on a hot girdle or frying pan. Can be served with butter cheese or honey.
