Irish Oatcakes are similar to Scottish Oatcakes with one big difference-the Scots do not use whole wheat flour. Also, if you can get your hands on Kerrygold Butter do so for the "eating". It's so good! I love, love, love oatcakes with a little smear of butter and a thick slice of old cheddar, pass on the jam.

How to Make County Clare Oatcakes


  1. Pulse oatmeal, flour, butter, and salt in a food processor until pea-size crumbles form.
  2. Add water; pulse until dough forms, transfer dough to a lightly floured baking sheet.
  3. Press a sheet of parchment paper over dough and using a rolling pin, roll dough into a 1⁄2" thick square; cover with a kitchen towel and let sit 1 hour to dry slightly.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 250°F.
  5. Using a 3" round cutter, cut out cakes; gather and reuse scraps.
  6. Transfer cakes to a baking sheet; bake, flipping once, until golden and slightly crisp, 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  7. The more slowly it cooks, the better the flavor will be.
  8. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
