    I keep humming and hahing about whether to get a sourdough starter on the go. I live such a chaotic life I'm not sure how good I'd be at keeping it going. But oatcakes would make it worthwhile for sure. Have you got a recipe you could share, Bren?

    Oatcakes can't think where the original recipe was from but I've used it for ages.

    One cup measure each of, fine oats, flour, water, and starter. Leave overnight then add a pinch of salt and baking powder probably some more water to make a thick batter but you don't want it too runny.
    Add 1/4 cup to pan cook then flip to do the other side.

    I used this amount and made 14 oatcakes today.
