on medieval cookery

For the premiere of Game of Thrones (nope, no dorks here, no way) we had a little um, medieval-ish potluck. I decided to make oatcakes because, well - they sound good and seemed to fit the bill. I used this recipe and added an additional two tablespoons of white sugar to make it a little more sweet than savory. I also used oat flower instead of whole wheat flour because, well, it just made more sense to me.

They turned out pretty well. It probably sounds silly to say, given the amount of butter in the recipe, but good lord they were rich!

Of course, that didn't stop us from slathering them with blue cheese and fig preserves...
