oatcakes (the pancakey ones)

I'm just watching Nadiya making Derbyshire oatcakes... Isn't there a version of them that doesn't have any wheat added? I've been googling but can't find any recipes. (Or did I just dream that!)

I'm guessing Staffordshire oatcakes are very similar - but all those recipes contain wheatflour too!

Looking at the previous thread on Staffordshire Oatcakes (I've eaten both an can't see any difference) I see I did a bit of digging and discovered they were originally made with all oats, but the texture is considered better with some ordinary flour

Oddly enough, I've been thinking of having a go at them

Thanks Sue. I don't remember that thread, and I see I posted on it... :? :shock: Memory, where are you?! It wasn't even that long ago!

I'll try your suggestion of GF bread flour. thanks.

I'm not going to buy shopbought GF wraps again - far too much money to buy plasticky cardboard! I made some buckwheat chapatis yesterday which worked well, apart from the third one which went a bit wrong (folded, holes etc!) But overall rather fiddly. I'm going to try everything to find the best substitute! I think I want something that's a batter rather than a dough.
