Staffordshire oatcakes are hugely popular in the Potteries area of North Staffs. They are basically pancakes of oatmeal and flour, leavened with yeast, and they are delicious stuffed with bacon and melted cheese.
Mix the flours and the oatmeal together in a large bowl. Add the salt and yeast, make a well in the centre and stir in the liquid. cover with plastic film or a clean tea-towel, and leave in a warm place to ferment for 1-2 hours.
After fermenting, the batter will be frothy and bubbly.
Heat some oil or butter in a heavy-bottomed medium-sized frying pan and add 1-2 tablespoons of batter. Swirl the pan round so the batter coats the bottom of the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes each side.
Serve with bacon and melted cheese, and possibly some grilled tomato.
