 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Fine oatmeal *
    1       lb           Flour
    1       oz           Yeast
    1       t            Sugar
    1       t            Salt
    2 1/2   pt           Warm water to mix (aprox.)
                         -----FOR SMALL QUANTITY-----
    2       tb           Flour
    2       tb           Oatmeal
    1       t            Baking powder
                         Water to mix
   * If you can't get fine oatmeal, use Quaker oats and
   grind fine in a food processer.
   Mix oatmeal, flour and salt in a warm bowl.
   Cream yeast with sugar and add 1/2 pint of the warm
   water. Pour the yeast mixture into the dry ingredients
   and add the rest of the water, mixing slowly until a
   thin batter is formed. Set aside in a warm place until
   well risen, about 30 mins. Grease a large frying pan
   heat. Pour cupfuls of the batter onto the pan and cook
   like thick pancakes for 4 - 5 mins on each side. Serve
   warmed up in a frying pan with bacon and eggs or with
   lemon juice and sugar, or toasted with cheese or
   golden syrup. To make a small quantity mix the flour,
   oatmeal and salt with the water to form a thin batter,
   and add the baking powder just before cooking.
   The oatcakes will keep for 2 - 3 days, or for 3 months
   if frozen.
