“This recipe comes from the county where the Scots first landed in Canada (and where my dad was born.) To quote the author, “Our Scottish ancestors used “real” oatmeal when they made their favourite oatcakes. However sugar did creep in, as indicated by this 75 year old recipe. (The book was published in 1971 so the recipe would be form the year 1894.)” My recipe is derived from the Pictou County Oat Cakes recipe in this book, I’ve altered it considerably.
